Unlike the folding variety of small diamond files from other manufacturers, the MPOWER Diamond Cross 5" File is a sturdier "General Purpose" file. This slim profile file can be used for sharpening any number of different tools found around the workshop, job site, kitchen, or garden shed. It has a single piece solid Stainless Steel core running right through the handle, providing a comfortably robust feeling.
This double-sided stone has both a Coarse 300 Grit (50 Micron) side for fast stock removal, and a Fine 600 Grit (25 Micron) side for honing a primary edge. The diamond abrasives are embedded on a solid, 1/16" thick, Anti-Rust Stainless Steel Core, and the highly distinctive embossed Diamond Cross pattern recesses provide the perfect balance between the ultra-hardwearing diamonds and the anti-clog properties of the patterned recess.
Diamond Cross sharpening stones may be used dry, but use of a lubricant is recommended. Either plain water or specially formulated lapping fluid will work. Every stone is thoroughly factory inspected for flatness and quality and has a 3 Year Guarantee. UK
