Venev Scorpion Series Bonded Diamonds are used for sharpening knives on KME and Blitz guided knife sharpeners. Diamond sharpening stones offer excellent performance in sharpening knives of any steel. 

Scorpion Series consists of a 2 mm-thick diamond-bearing layer on a 5 mm-thick aluminum base. The diamond-bearing plate contains evenly distributed diamond grains with resin bonding. The manufacture of bonded diamonds is more complex than for coated diamonds. Bonded diamonds provide better feedback and give the sharpening stone a much longer lifespan.

The OCB version of Venev Diamonds utilizes a brand-new yellow binder with no abrasive particles in the composition. OCB is available in fine grits only and offers better scratch-free sharpening results.

All Venev diamonds use FEPA-F grit classification. Scorpion series is available in 7 grits from F 80 to F 1500. F80 to F 240 utilize legacy binder. F 400 to F 1500 utilize OCB binder. 

Antares set and all individual stones in the Scorpion series utilize 100% diamond concentration.

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.
