Sixteen years ago, DMT introduced a sharpening stone that has become invaluable and essential. The DuoSharp Diamond Bench Stone is guaranteed to provide fast, clean and consistent results every time. Its iconic, polka-dot patterned surface, an innovation designed and developed by DMT, is often imitated in appearance, but never equaled in quality or function. It self-cleans during sharpening to ensure continuous edge contact and allows for long, even sharpening strokes to accommodate a variety of edges—from gouges and carving tools to utility knives, plane blades and beyond.

And, because it is double-sided, the DuoSharp makes sharpening even more convenient. Each side offers a different diamond grit and provides a large 10-inch-by-4-inch surface. Four different grit combinations are available: Coarse/Extra-Coarse, Fine/Coarse, Extra-Fine/Fine and Extra-Fine/Coarse. The stone comes with a non-skid mat to improve safety and ease of use. An optional locking base features non-skid rubber feet and provides 2-inch knuckle clearance to ensure safe and secure sharpening. (dmtsharp.com)
