wades623: your extra extra fine stones suck, didn't last long at all
Trung Hieu Tran: very good information, but annoying audio, can only hear from the left. Same problem on amazon.com
Michael Reed: I will be buying a duosharp as soon as I can get an answer to my question about grits. I have been researching this for a while and get a different answer from every person I ask. I want to use a sharpening stone. I have a really good 4 sided strop from stropman to refine and hone the edge. I would like to have a duosharp 8 inch and the bench. Now my question is, what grit combo do I need? I would like to bring back a couple of blades that are damaged but that is secondary to maintaining my new custom scandi grind. I would like it to be able to do other things but the main thing is to maintain my new knife. ANY Suggestions would be appreciated. I would love to hear from someone who actually uses the DMT bench stones. lol you would not believe the answers I have received. Everything from "just use a mason jar" to " "a sharpmaker is the way to go with a scandi" As I said, I would love to hear from a person who is knowledgeable in DMT stones. Thanks for the time and thought.
davids11131113: What are the life spans of these?
Bungman Agforty: ...but how do you actually USE it?
cheetah5115: Audio is annoying as hell, only coming from the left.
Big Kahuna: Wonder why I can't hear the audio on this video like the rest of you videos.
DMTSHARP: The stones can come out of the wood case. You can place on a non-skid mat or towel and sharpen out of the case.
jedirifleman: Will the 3 diamond stones come out of the wood case or are they glued in ?
ardvarkkkkk1: The advantage of water stones over other (non diamond) stones is that they cut fast. The down side is that they are messy and require constant maintenance. Diamonds stones cut faster, are not near as messy and require very little maintenance. I have used about every thing out there. My current setup is a two sided (fine and extra fine) diamond stone, a hard Arkansas stone and a leather strop. Gives a razor edge, low maintenance and is fast. Clean up consists of a quick wipe with a rag.
