The EZE-LAP 2x6” DD6M/C is a double-sided diamond sharpening stone with a medium grit size (400 grit) and a coarse grit size (250 grit). With this bench stone you can quickly sharpen your blunt or even damaged edge back into shape and give it a working edge again. This sharpening stone comes with a non-slip mat, so you can be sure that the stone won't move while you're sharpening.
The advantage of diamond as an abrasive is that it quickly removes material. Also, its surface stays nice and smooth, and the stone lasts a very long time. To distinguish between the different grit sizes, the stone has a small information panel on each side. This panel shows both the grit size and a stripe in the corresponding colour. In the case of the DD6M/C, the medium 400 grit has a purple stripe, and the coarse 250 grit has a black stripe.
Using the sharpening stone
We recommend that you start with a slightly older knife for your first times sharpening with this stone, because diamond sharpening stones need to be “pre-sharpened”. You'll notice that the surface of the sharpening stone is initially somewhat coarser in texture. After sharpening a few knives, this will disappear, and the stone will reach its final level of effect. Let the stone do the work without applying too much pressure.
EZE-LAP diamond sharpening stones can be used wet and dry. The advantage of wet sharpening is that it lubricates the stone and also washes away the sharpening residues. Only use water to wet sharpen - never use oil. If you only use the sharpening stone for dry sharpening, we recommend that you regularly clean the surface. This will remove sharpening residues from previous use and make sure the stone stays in top condition.
