Eze-Lap Diamonds are used for sharpening knives on Edge Pro sharpeners. All Eze-Lap diamonds are mounted on high quality aluminum blanks with laser engraving. Diamond sharpening stones are unrivaled when in comes to sharpening hard steel knives.
Eze-Lap Diamond Sharpening Stones consist of nickel plates and a diamond electroplated coating. All diamond particles are located on the working surface, providing maximum sharpening performance.
Eze-Lap diamonds should be used with one of these lubricants:
Dry usage is acceptable practice, although it results in faster wearing and speeds up stone loading.
Eze-Lap diamonds do not have any minor defects.
Eze-Lap diamond does not require any preparations.
Warning! If your knife sharpener has a strong magnet, Eze-Lap diamonds will be difficult to use as the steel plate will be attracted to the magnet.
There is no difference. Edge Pro diamonds are simply branded Eze-Lap diamonds. Eze-Lap offers 4 grits, while Edge Pro only offers 2 grits. We buy diamonds from Eze-Lap and mount them on aluminum blanks in exactly the same way as Edge Pro. The only difference is that we retain the names of the original sharpening stones when naming our end products.
Yes, but you must use a thickness compensator because Eze-Lap diamonds are 2.6 mm thick, while most of sharpening stones we offer are 6 mm thick. It's highly recommended to own a thickness compensator because the ability to use sharpening stones of different thicknesses allows for a high level of flexibility.
No, we do not recommend doing this. Coated diamonds will wear extremely quick when used on soft steel, making Eze-Lap an uneconomical choice. If you own knives of both hard and soft steel, consider buying bonded rather than coated diamonds.
We buy Eze-Lap diamond sharpening hones directly from Eze-Lap and attach the stones to aluminum blanks. You can buy 250, 400 and 600 grit diamonds on a walnut pedestal (instead of the Edge Pro blank) on the Eze-Lap website. However, Eze-Lap does not offer 1200 grit diamonds online.
Theoretically, yes. However, sharpening ceramic knives is technically difficult and uneconomical in most cases. Diamond hones can cause microchipping when used on ceramics. Consider purchasing a new ceramic knife instead of sharpening 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.
We don't sell diamonds without blanks.
