How to choose the right grit:

The grit that's best depends on a couple of factors. We suggest that you ask yourself these questions: How often do I sharpen? How dull do I let my knife or tool edge get before I re-sharpen? How sharp is sharp enough for me?

After asking yourself the questions above, take a moment to read the grit descriptions below to determine which grit(s) will best suits your needs. Hint: the pros use more than one grit and move from coarser to finer grits as they sharpen. Therefore our top recommendation is for you to consider one of the two-grits-in-one-tool models (Double-sided Diafold® Diamond Whetstones or DuoSharp® Diamond bench stone models).

More about DMT grits:

EXTRA EXTRA COARSE - Use when excessive stock removal is needed, this will do the job quickly and precisely. DMT®‘s bench stone has a surface flatness to +/- 0.001”, is perfect for flattening water stones, Arkansas stones and synthetic stones. Also, a safe alternative to powered grinding with no worries of heat build up that can damage tool temper. Color code: SILVER EXTRA EXTRA COARSE (120 micron, 120 mesh).

EXTRA COARSE - Recommended for aggressive removal of metal on damaged tools or for heavy-duty outdoor tools such as axes and lawn mower blades. This grit is great for flattening Japanese waterstones and is also commonly used as the first step in flattening the backs of chisels and plane irons and for rapid stock removal from a chipped or badly damaged edge. Color code: BLACK EXTRA COARSE (60 micron, 220 mesh).

COARSE - Quickly restores a dull edge to cutting sharp again. Customers that desire cutting fast action without worry of edge refinement often use the coarse models. Color code: BLUE COARSE (45 micron, 325 mesh).

FINE - Restores to a fine edge any knife or tool that is slightly dull. Many customers consider the fine grit to be a medium/all purpose sharpener. Professional Chefs and gourmet cooks prefer using the fine grit models. For woodworkers and sportsman who are stepping through the grits, it's the edge refinement step done before micro beveling and polishing. Color code: RED FINE (25 micron, 600 mesh).

EXTRA FINE - Refines and polishes the sharp edge to razor sharp perfection. If you are new to sharpening or if you do not need your knife or tool edge to be as sharp as absolutely possible, this grit is not recommended. But if it's not sharp until it's sharp enough for you, this is the grit you are looking for. Color code: GREEN EXTRA FINE (9 micron, 1200 mesh).

EXTRA EXTRA FINE - Provides the finest grade micronized bonded diamond abrasive available anywhere for the ultimate edge refinement down to a polished edge. Quick stock removal with millions of diamond cutting edges. Color code: TAN EXTRA EXTRA FINE (3 micron, 8000 mesh).

    Excellent double grit sharpener.

    This sharpener put an easily achieved finishing edge, after using the coarse grit, on my everyday carry Buck & Victorinox pocket knives. It also worked equally as well on my garden pruners.

    Great Portable Sharpener

    Posted by John G. on Dec 9th 2017

    This is the second of these I have purchaed. I bought myy first one close to twenty years ago and it is still going strong. This is my primary choice for sharpening my knives when they get really dull or touching them up prior to that point.

    The DMT double model gives you the coarse and fine grades that take care of the majority of sharpening needs. Add to that the fact that you do NOT have to mess with oils or water to keep the surface functional, you have a truly winning combination.

    Although the handle appears and feels to be weak, my original (red handle model) is still going strong after close to twenty years of use. I bought this second one to throw in a BOB while leaving my other one available to ongoing use without having to dig it out from my pack.

    If you are looking for a simple sharpener that will take care of 85 to 90 % of you needs, this is a great option that is bing enough to do the job and small enough to pack.

    Get one!
