The DMT Non-Skid Mat is a great accessory for your sharpening setup. Whether it is under a stone or stone holder, the mat will give you a secure base during sharpening. It will keep everything right where you want it, minimizing the chance for any slips.
The DMT Non Skid Mat does what it is designed to do very well. It prevents any kind of slip (skid) on the surface which it rest as well as for items placed on it. It is also very well made.
Works OK. Was cheap so thought I’d try it,but water usually gets under it and makes it slide eventually. Although when it’s dry it holds better than a paper towel...after a while you’ll have to dry off everything to restick it. A heavy stone-holder is probably much better...but you pay much more for it. :)

Works Great on a dry surface... slight slippage on wet surfaces but all and all good product. I recommend to all who use stones to sharpen.
It does what it is supposed to do and it does it very well. Value for (little) money!

The laminate is already coming apart and a rag would work almost as well.
These skid mats work on the DMT plates very well,but also work for many other surfaces. very little cost for a great product.
For stones that are too large for stone holders this thing is ESSENTIAL. it works much much better than a rag or dish towel would and is pretty cool to boot. It might not be the most durable item like people are saying but hey... at the end of the day its 6 bucks. i love this thing and plan on keeping it one my sharpening setup.
