An important step to the success of any
woodworking project is to begin with sharp tools. DMT® Diamond Sharpeners
are well known to woodworkers for their remarkable sharpening speed, precision
flatness and ease of use. Some of the factors that contribute to the sharpening
efficiency of DMT® products are:
1. Precisely sized micron Monocrystalline diamond. The
single crystal super abrasive provides durability and toughness. It is
most effective on the new harder tool steels.
2. The unique interrupted surface of recessed polka dots
collects and removes the metal fines from the tool edge during the sharpening
process. This feature keeps the DMT diamond-sharpening surface performing,
making your sharpening task that much faster.
3. The flatness of the substrate matches the flatness
of ground steel plates - a precision standard not attained by other manufacturers
