Armed with both coarse and fine interrupted surface diamond stones, Micro-Tool Sharpening Pads, and a sharpening groove, the Diamond Combination Sharpener provides a quick, razor sharp edge on any straight edge knife, fish hook, or tool with a sharp edge.
- Coarse (325 Grit) and Fine (750 Grit) diamond stones in one
- Soft grip rubber handle for comfort
- Thumb guard for safety
- Stones store in handle for safekeeping
- Sharpening Groove for fish hooks and pointed tools
- Micro-tool sharpening pad for small tools
Features coarse and fine grit sharpening surfaces.
These surfaces contain multiple layers of micron-sized moncrystalline diamonds and a unique sharpening surface with an overlapping oval hole design. This innovation speeds sharpening by collecting and holding the metal filings which ordinarily build up during the sharpening process. Each stone has a 'micro-tool sharpening pad' and a sharpening groove for fish hooks or pointed tools.
The soft grip rubber handle is designed to make sharpening safe and easy, and when you are finished sharpening, you can store your stones in the handle for safekeeping.
Sharpening Instructions and Product Care:
SHARPENING INSTRUCTIONS: Use water or Smith's non-petroleum based honing oil as your sharpening lubricant, but stone can be used dry. DO NOT use petroleum based oil on your stone as a sharpening lubricant. 1. Place your blade on the end of the stone at the desired sharpening angle. 2. Push the blade away from you just like you are trying to carve a thin slice off the top of the stone. Use moderate pressure; let the diamond do the work. Repeat this pushing stroke 3 or 4 times. Try to maintain the same sharpening angle with each stroke. This is the key to obtaining the sharpest cutting edge. Now sharpen the other side of the blade. Place your blade on the opposite end of your Smith's stone and repeat steps 1 and 2, except this time, pulling the blade toward you. CARE: Always dry your diamond stone surface after each use and before storing. Occasionally clean your stone with soapy water and a mild brush.
Widely regarded as a world leader for sharpening tools, Smith’s, The Edge Experts, since 1886, lays claim to the design and manufacture of the broadest line of knife, tool, and scissors sharpeners currently available in the Sporting Goods and Hardware markets.

Combination of Coarseness: I like that this tool comes with both a coarse and fine stone. I have various knives and blades in various conditions: Sometimes a fine stone is just not enough to bring back a neglected edge to where it should be and I find the coarse stone is just what I need. While I think the descriptions are reasonably accurate, this stone does take a learning curve to master. Initially, both sides act coarser than they should be, as the diamonds break and wear to a more consistent surface. It will seem, then, that it quickly loses its effectiveness, when in reality it is just breaking in.
Utility: On both sides of the stones, there is a flat patch for very small blades, which is nice. There is also a groove on both stones for sharpening points of, say, fish hooks or needles. I'm not sure how often I'll be sharpening my fish hooks, but it's a thoughtful feature. The cover turns around to form a handle and, though made of plastic, it has held up well and doesn't allow the stone to shift when sharpening. Unlike a more traditional stone meant to sit flat on a surface, this one is best held at an angle, keeping the tip held on a surface with the handle. This is how I've been using it and find that works best for me. The relatively small size of this sharpener requires a different technique than having a large stone to work on, using both hands on the blade, when the stone sits on a flat surface. Overall, this stone is able to sharpen a broad range of edges, whether on knives, wood carving tools, etc.Read more ›
One point some folks need to know, if you plan on just using this to keep kitchen knives sharp, this may not be the best one to buy. The coarse side is very coarse, so if you keep your knives reasonably sharp, you will probably never use it. You would be better served getting a set of stones that are "Fine" and "Very Fine" since those will keep household knives razor sharp.
For an all-in-one sharpening set for the outdoor sportsman, this can't be beat!
Diamond stones are the only way to go if your not a traditionalist.
Well just messing around the other day I removed the excess plastic so I had a flat 2-sides sharpener and made a wood base I could set it into giving me the correct height to use it as a bench stone and allowing me to use the full length since there's no handle to get in the way.
Since I did that I've used this little sharpener to quickly tune up several blades I was having trouble with on my larger Arkansas stones, particularly a few recurve shape blades, this cheap little diamond sharpener put a shaving sharp (but still pretty coarse, [they're "fine" is only around 800 grit]) edge on S30V steel on my ZT 0350 and the 154CM steel on my Benchmade 555 in no time. I also touched up my wife's spyderco with VG-10 which it cut like butter, I could reprofile that blade with ONLY the fine side, that's how well it cuts.
Don't expect to see yourself in your nicely polished edge, but its got no problem taking a dull knife to shaving arm hair cleanly in under 10 minutes. The ergonomics of the sharpener take away from its sharpening ability, a half hour in the workshop building a nice little base is time well spent for the amount of time this diamond sharpener will save over going up threw the grits on Arkansas stones, not to mention the large difference in initial cost and the continued cost of honing oil /WD40 when using Oil stones.Read more ›

I have a hard time finding a use for this.
You can't easily repeat an angle with it, so it's difficult to create a sharp edge. Read more
