The EZE-LAP EZE-Fold 530 is a double-sided sharpening stone. On one side there is a diamond sharpening surface with a super fine grit size (1200 grit). There is a ceramic sharpening surface on the other side. The sharpening stone has white 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 EZE-Fold 530 is the ultimate tool for providing your cutting tool with a particularly sharp edge and keeping that edge sharp. With its super fine grit size (1200 grit), the diamond side already ensures an extremely sharp edge. The white ceramic side comes in handy for the finish: use it to polish the edge and create the ultimate sharp finishing touch.
Using the sharpening stone
We recommend that you start with a slightly older knife for your first times sharpening with this stone, as this will pre-sharpen the diamond side. You'll notice that the surface of the diamond sharpening side 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.
