Pros: Effectiveness, Overall Quality, Ease of Use
I just got the EdgeTek dual flat pocket stone. It has 325 grit/750grit on either side. I think it is a very good price for a pocket diamond stone. The diamond surfaces look sufficiently uniform and the plastic sheath is serviceable..My measurements are 3-15/16" long by 1-1/4" wide by 0.050" thick (99.5 mm x 31 mm x 1.25 mm). Weight is 1-1/4 oz., or 36 grams. It is truly a pocket friendly size and weight. I think it is big enough for most sharpening jobs. It can be laid flat on a table, or held in hand, depending on your style and the tool being sharpened.I used it to clean up the edge of my Henkels chef's knife (of regular cutlery stainless steel), which had small chips. The 325 grit was actually too coarse for a sharpened blade, and the 750 did a fast job of leaving behind a usable edge. I did use ceramic rods to further refine the edge. I can see using the 325 grit to work on axes and machetes. After use, it is recommend to wash the stone with water.This was money well spent. I love small items that are just big enough to get the job done. The EdgeTek pocket diamond stone feels like a quality product with versatility to serve me well for a long time.
