The EZE-LAP DMD-Kit is a sharpening system with three included diamond-coated sharpening stones. This set contains everything you need to quickly sharpen your knife. The angle guides are very practical. They ensure that you are constantly sharpening at the right angle.

The storage cover contains the following parts:
- Clamp to secure your knife
- Two angle guides
- Three guiding rods
- Three sharpening stones: super fine diamond (1200 grit), fine diamond (600 grit) and medium (400 grit).
The advantage of diamond as an abrasive is that it quickly removes material. Moreover, the surface remains nice and even and the stone lasts a very long time.
How to use the sharpening system
The system is easy to use. Screw the sharpening angle guides onto the clamp and secure the knife. Then pick up the required sharpening stone with a guiding rod. Stick the rod into the opening of the angle you wish to use. You have the choice of three sharpening angles: of 15, 20 or 25 degrees. Place the sharpening surface of the stone on the edge of your knife and start sharpening by pulling the sharpening stone over the edge of the knife. Exactly the opposite of sharpening on a sharpening stone, where you pull the knife over the sharpening stone. Because the rod continuously moves through the guides at the same height, you always sharpen at the right angle.
We recommend that you start using this stone in combination with a slightly older knife. Diamond sharpening stones namely need to be sharpened as well. 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 effect. Let the stone do its 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. With wet sharpening only use water never 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 great shape.
Please note: The holder around each stone is about 5.5 mm wider than the stone on each side. This protects your fingers, and ensures that sharpening the edge close to the handle can be difficult because the holder can bump against the handle. The same applies when sharpening knives with a larger ricasso or crop that extends to the cutting surface.
