- Match the diameter of the cone to the size of the serration or gut hook.
- Use a few short, light, back and forth strokes on each serration... similar to light toothbrush short stroke.
TIP: Wipe the small burr off the opposite side of the edge with one smooth, light, flat stroke.
By working through the DMT® system of progressively finer grits, you will quickly achieve a razor sharp edge on quality knives and tools. The DMT® diamond products are colour-coded for identification. In our product descriptions, coloured diamond shapes denote the specific grits in which each model is available.
Which grit you should use depends on... How often do you sharpen? How dull do you let your knife or tool edge get before you re-sharpen it? How sharp is sharp enough for you? Ask yourself these questions, and then read the grit descriptions (left) to determine which grit(s) best suits your needs. Hint: the pros use more than one grit & move from coarser to finer grits as they sharpen.
