Specialty item so don't TD just because you don't need it or know what it is.
Also with most Amazon deals, prices change according to demand.

https://www.amazon.com/DMT-D8X-Co...B001DZOKNY

Make sure to choose Amazon as the seller on the right. It is currently $18.25

currently at this price of $18.25 Ships within 1-2 months

** Amazon does not currently have stock so estimate is 1 to 2 months. This is usually a conservative estimate and will update to a shorter time as they get stock.

Most people won't know what it is because: 1) your link doesn't work, 2) you should probably update the title to include what it is: sharpening stone.

Almost impossible to seriously be looking for a diamond sharpening stone and not know the DMT brand. Great price, but I've already got a full set from xx fine to xx coarse in 8 and 11 inch continuous surface.

Continuous diamond, DMT? What else would it be?

These are great for lapping as well as deburring pistons ring edges when gapping.

I didn't like that there were raised areas that would catch however, and would not recommend this product for lapping flanges, cylinder decks etc.

I don't care about guessing games and you didn't even bother to read the flow of conversation.

OP pre-whined about getting possible thumbs down. My comment (to them) was if they didn't want to get thumbs down...they should probably fix some important details in their post.

Pre whined? I noted your suggestions and corrected them and understood why I got the TD because of it. I was stating do not TD if you don't want the deal like we often see under the tools category for something that is a good deal even though there were cheaper but inferior versions through harbor frieght.

I have a splitting axe that I use, definitely needs sharpening after mild use. Would you recommend this for sharpening an axe? I don't mean to ask a dumb question, but there are many different options which are NOT on sale here...so I don't want to assume this would be good for me.

Any Axperts out there?

Facepalm

Yes, those things were changed after my comment which quoted your original comment pre-complaining about people possibility thumbing this thread down since they didn't know what this item was.

It really doesn't need to be this complex and now water under the bridge since it seems the corrections have been made.

Sorry, I'm not an axe expert. I uses these to flatten my chisels/water stones. This one is very coarse

It's best for getting back to a basic shape. Then working your way up in grit to a polish.

This is used for fine sharpening of edges(even tho this is extra coarse grade more for repair or roughing) of knives and the like possibly a chisel but really I think even that is a waste of the stone even tho it should last over a decade if used properly(dont grind hard and push the diamonds out). Chisels and axes are made with allot of material not only for weight and strength but also so that machine sharpening and material removal are less of an issue(you want to sharpen nice knives by removing as little material as possible and still get the edge you want thats why hand sharpening or hand tool sharpening is used vs motor driven). You should probably use a bench grinder and then switch out the stone wheel or on the other side use a buffing wheel and then buff it out for an axe or chisel. I ordered a couple of these and I'm only going to use this for hand sharpening nice knives either pocket or kitchen.

my friend bought me a nice kitchen knife which due to wife's misuse has already started to rust on the edge. Would you guys use one of these stones to sharpen the knife and get rid of rust? Sorry I really don't know anything about this.

No. This is way too course for a kitchen knife.

Honestly...if you don't want to sharpen lots of things frequently....find yourself a honemeister. A pro will sharpen a kitchen knife for around $10 - $12. They'll do it better than you will be able to (without lots of practice) and using better stones (unless you want to spend a lot of money).

Rust may end up being an extra charge if the edge has to be ground down. If it's just a tad bit of rust on the surface, sharpening may take it out.

I found one local to me with some Google fu and Facebook. People drop off knives, shop the farmer's market, and pick up the knives when they're done. It's pretty convenient. I found another one that travels to various locations and sharpens on a truck. You work out convenient drop off and pick up based on their schedule and workload. But if you know somebody who works in a quality restaurant, they may know somebody (or the kitchen staff, if your friend works up front).
