1x4 Diamond Resin Stones for the KME Sharpener

The 1x4 Jende Diamond Resin Stones for the KME Sharpener come in 15 Micron, 9 Micron, 6 Micron, and 3 Micron which are equivalent to 1K, 2K, 3K, and 6K grits, respectively. Jende 1x4 diamond resin stones work on all steel types and even ceramic knives. The 1x4 Jende diamond resin stones are designed to do cleanup after the stock KME diamond plates and/or the Atoma 1x4 diamond plates and continue to a mirror polish in an all-diamond lineup. 

Abrasive Material: Diamond

15 Micron (~1000 grit) is an excellent cleanup stone to remove deeper scratches left by coarser plates and stones. It can also be used for routine maintenance and sharpening. This stone leaves a very good working sharp edge.

9 Micron (~2,000 grit) further refines the edges from the 15 micron diamond resin stone, and can be used for light repair and general maintenance sharpening. It leaves an even better quality work sharp edge. The 9 micron diamond resin stone also begins to polish, and sets things up for further refinement sharpening and polishing.

6 Micron (~3,000 grit) really begins to refine and polish the edge leaving a high level of sharpness and with some very good shine. The 6 micron diamond resin stone is best for maintenance sharpening and preparation for full out mirrors and further refinement.

3 Micron (~6,000 grit) is a keystone slicing edges and mirror polishing. It is an excellent touching up stone, and really sets the edge up for further refinement through finser grit stone, stropping or Jende diamond films.

The Jende Resin Diamond Plates are designed to be used as part of an all-diamond lineup that has a longer lifespan than the already wide ranging 10 grits of Jende Diamond Films. After the Atoma 1x4 diamond plates or the stock KME diamond plates, the next logical step is the 1x4 Diamond Resin Stones in 15, 9, 6, and 3 micron, followed by Jende Poly Diamond Stropping Emulsions with the Jende Leather, kangaroo and nanocloth strops.

The Jende 1x4 diamond resin stones are splash and go and meant to be used with water. Let them air dry between use. Size is 1" x 4" x 5mm in size, and consists of a 3mm thick stone mounted to a 2mm thick aluminum blank. Even though the 1x4 size is meant for use with the KME Sharpener, it is also a great size for a slip stone, field stone or a pocket stone for knife sharpening on the go, or to remove unwanted burrs.

Hacks and Tips:

-- Use a moderate amount of water when sharpening with this stone to avoid the black swarf buildup. A cleaner surface will cut faster than one with a lot of swarf.
-- If using this stone as a final or polishing grit, keep the black swarf viscous and it will produce a slightly more refined edge.
-- Lap this stone ONLY with a Jende 2-Sided Glass Lapping Plate and Silicon Carbiode powders. Lapping diamonds to diamond only wears the diamonds down, and doesn't revitalize the resin stones.
-- The Jende Diamond Resin stones can be used in conjunction with oil stones (such as Norton India and other carborundum and Arkansas stones) if the blade is wiped clean before and after switching stone types. They can also be used in a mix and match progression with other synthetic and natural sharpening stones, as well with other brands such as Shapton, Sigma, Suehiro, Imanishi, Spyderco, King, etc.
