The EZE-LAP EZE-Fold 510 is a double-sided diamond sharpening stone with a super fine grit size (1200 grit) on one side and medium grit size (400 grit) on the other side. The double-sided sharpening stone has silver handles that fold around the stone when folded. As a result, the stone is always well protected. It's ideal to take with you when travelling, hunting or fishing, but also handy for at home.
About the grit size
The somewhat coarser side of the stone has a medium grit size (400 grit). You use this side to quickly sharpen and reshape a blunt edge. At the same time, this grit size ensures a solid finish. The other, almost smooth side of the stone has a super-fine grit size (1200 grit). This gives the edge an extremely sharp and polished finishing touch.
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 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. 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.
