Venev Dual Side Diamond Sharpening Stones consist of two 2 mm-thick diamond-bearing layers on the aluminum plate. The diamond-bearing layers contains evenly distributed diamond grains with organic bonding. The manufacture of bonded diamonds is more complex than for coated diamonds.

FAQ

  • Which type of diamond is better bonded or coated?

    Coated diamonds have all the diamond grains on the surface, maximizing performance. Bonded diamonds spread the diamond grains over their whole volume, and work in similar fashion to conventional abrasives. Only bonded diamonds can be flattened, lapped, repaired or refreshed. Bonded diamonds are universal and able to sharpen any steel. Bonded diamonds have much better feedback and a longer lifespan.

  • Can I buy Venev diamonds to sharpen all my knives? If they are okay for hard steel, they should be even better for soft steel, right?

    Yes, Venev diamonds are universal and will wear extremely slowly on both hard and soft steel.

  • Can I sharpen ceramic knives with Venev diamonds?

    Theoretically, yes. However, sharpening ceramic knives is technically difficult and uneconomical in most cases. Diamond stones can cause microchipping when used on ceramics. Consider purchasing a new ceramic knife instead of sharpening it.

  • Well-known manufacturers like DMT and Eze-Lap use coated diamonds in their products. Doesn't that mean bonded diamonds are inferior?

    Absolutely not. Coated diamond technology is developed in the USA due to its lower cost. The bonded diamond technology is more advanced and more expensive.

  • Venev 2000 grit diamond creates large grooves on the cutting edge. What is wrong with it?

    This is completely normal for diamond sharpening, especially on high carbon steels. Diamonds offer high performance, sacrificing cutting edge quality. If you need a very accurate cutting edge, you should switch to non-diamond abrasives.

  • Does Venev use the FEPA grit scale?

    Yes. The manufacturer applies FEPA-F grit and national standard GOST 9206 to mark the stone on the reverse side (for example, a 2000 grit diamond is marked "F2000 1/0").
