Description

Attention! We recommend finishing with the OCB 1200 diamond. OCB 2000 is an experimental product of Venev in all form-factors. Additional lapping is strongly recommended for OCB 2000 to improve the sharpening result, otherwise, it will perform coarser than OCB 1200. Use loose silicon carbide powder of progression F120 -> F400 -> F2000.

Venev Dragon Series Dual Side Diamonds are used for freehand sharpening knives. Diamond sharpening stones offer excellent performance in sharpening knives of any steel.

Dragon Series Diamonds consist of two 2 mm-thick diamond-bearing layers glued to the aluminum plate. The diamond layer thickness is twice more than in the Phoenix series and has tighter flatness tolerance. The diamond-bearing layers contain evenly distributed diamond grains with resin bonding. Bonded diamonds give the sharpening stone a much longer lifespan.

Phoenix Series is available available in six grit combinations. All Venev diamonds use FEPA-F grit classification.

  • F80 + F150
  • F100 + F240
  • F240 + F400 OCB
  • F400 OCB + F800 OCB
  • F800 OCB + F1200 OCB
  • F1200 OCB + F2000 OCB

OCB binder for the grit range 400 to 2000 offers extraordinary sharpening quality.

Attention! Additional lapping is strongly recommended for OCB 2000 to improve the sharpening result. We recommend using loose silicon carbide powder. Using a diamond lapping plate is not recommended.

How to use

Venev Diamonds are recommended to be used with water as a lubricant for the best feedback. The diamond does not absorb water. Splash water on the stone's surface. Dry usage is an acceptable practice, although it results in faster wearing and speeds up stone loading.
