The DMT Dia-Sharp Diamond Plates are impregnated with diamonds for an aggressive cutting surface. The D8C is rated 325 grit and is one of our most popular diamond plates for keeping higher grit water stones flat. This grit is also great for quick stock removal of wear resistance metals, resetting bevels or tip and edge repair. These plates have rubber feet attached to keep them from slipping while in use. Measures 8” x 3” x ¾”.
If you are going to hone yourself,you realy need the DMT 325. Especially if you are using the same stones for razor´s.
It is the best tool for keeping your stones flat.
An excellent multi-tasker: great for lapping higher grit stones (an XXC may leave gouges - smooth them out with this plate) and works well as a "next step" after setting bevels or repair work after using the XXC.
