The EZE-LAP EZE-Fold 520 is a double-sided diamond sharpening stone with a coarse grit size (250 grit) on one side and fine grit size (600 grit) on the other side. The double-sided sharpening stone has gold 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 coarse grit size (250 grit). You use this side to quickly sharpen and reshape a blunt or even a damaged edge. The other side, with its fine grit size (600 grit), gives that edge a sharp finish, bringing your cutting tool back to top condition.
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.
