I take a look at the Smith's Diamond Combination Knife Sharpener with the Coarse and Fine Grit, giving my first impressions and demonstrating one of my first sharpening's. Overall I think this is a great value sharpener at the $20 dollar pricepoint. You can go from dull to hair shaving sharp in just a few minutes. The Fine side has about 750 grit, giving you the ability to sharpen up to hair shaving sharp. In my experience I did not quite get the edge to razor sharp, but it was sharp enough to shave hair (but I wouldn't want to shave my face with it). The Coarse Side uses 325 grit which allows you to shave off more metal in the event that a knives edge is very dull. The design on both sides uses a "unique overlapping hole design that speeds sharpening by collecting and holding the metal fillings that ordinarily build up during the sharpening process". There is also a small porting on the sharpener that does not have these holes, which is useful for smaller knives or tools that need an uninterrupted surface. There is also a groove to sharpen pointed tools and fish hooks. These stones can be used dry, with water, or a non-petroleum based honing solution. I used the Benchmade Griptilian Knife with one54cm steel to sharpen. The blade was already relatively sharp so all I did was re-hone the edge on the fine side. It worked well, bringing the edge back to hair popping sharp in just a few minutes. As always, thanks for watching, be safe, and PEACE!
