Diamond sharpening stones are typically used for sharpening and honing the edges of cutting tools such as knives, scissors, chisels, and plane blades. Some tools that are commonly used with diamond sharpening stones include:
This is a tool used to keep the sharpening stone in place and prevent it from moving during use.
This is a lubricant used to keep the diamond sharpening stone from clogging up with metal particles during use, and to prevent the blade from overheating.
This is a tool that helps to maintain a consistent angle when sharpening the blade.
This is used to level the surface of the diamond sharpening stone if it becomes uneven.
This is used to clean the surface of the diamond sharpening stone after use.
From a large carving knife to a paring or filleting knife - The GPS Credit Card can cope with all sorts of different sizes and knife styles.
A lot of people (sadly me included ) treat drill bits as disposable items, they blunt, you throw them away. Its only since being a part of the team that researched and developed the new Diamond Cross range did I discover how easily Drill bits of any size can be brought back to life with a few strokes on a diamond stone.
The “snap off” blade craft knife is a really useful addition to the tool box however it’s made all the more useful by sharpening and re-sharpening the blade. There’s really no need to snap off an old section of blade. A couple of sharpening strokes on the Credit card stone and it is so much sharper than even a new section of blade.
Our research uncovered the fact that the poor old scissors were treated in the same way as Drill bits and Craft knives. They were disposable. They go blunt and you throw them away. Now having tested the Credit Card stone over a few months I’ve sharpened every pair of scissors in the house. That’s 2 x pairs of kitchen scissors, Hair cutting scissors and clippers and a pair of office paper scissors. Each pair are now cutting so much better than even new.
The GPS Credit Card is equally at home sharpening tools in the garden. Again the surprising result of our research is that it simply doesn’t occur to people that their secateurs, hedge clippers, shears and edge trimmers don’t need to be sharpened by professionals.
Both Tungsten Tipped blades and High speed steel can be sharpened using the GPS Credit Card, however based on personal preference I would recommend using the Router bit sharpener stone. It’s not as wide as the credit card stone so it’s easier to maintain contact with the face of the saw tooth for the full sharpening stroke.
Electrical screw drivers need the tip kept square to help prevent damaging the slots in the heads of the screws. Which is an easy task on the Credit card stone; a few sharpening strokes with the tip of the screw held at right angles to the stone surface and the drivers good to go again. (we do suggest using the Diamond stone holder for this operation)
Anybody well practiced in the art of hand carving will already have the knowledge and skill set to keep their chisels sharp, probably with a range of different sharpening stones. However the GPS Credit card stone is uniquely stable when used with the Diamond Stone holder. So it’s great for the smallest of gouges. A great stocking filler for the woodworker with almost everything.
