The KME Gold Series diamond-coated sharpening stone 'the Beast' extremely coarse, 50 grit is the coarsest diamond-coated sharpening stone from the KME range. As the name might already suggest this sharpening stone is indeed a beast. This stone quickly removes material. That is why we only recommend using this stone to reprofile a heavily damaged edge. This sharpening stone is meant for the KME Precision Knife Sharpening System, Diamond Stone Kit, the KME Precision Knife Sharpening System, R.P.S.H. Combo Kit or the KME Axe Sharpener Kit.
This diamond-coated sharpening stone is comprised of a metal sheet that contains small synthetic diamonds. Diamond is very hard which means that diamond-coated sharpening stones quickly remove material. Don't apply too much pressure! The diamonds are placed in a layer of nickel. If you sharpen too hard you push the diamonds out of the sharpening stone.
For most knives and purposes this stone is actually too coarse. To sharpen a blunt knife we recommend the 1000 grit or 140 grit sharpening stone. If, however, you want to remove a lot of material, this 50 grit sharpening stone is the beast you have been looking for.
