The DMT Aligner knife sharpener takes the mystery out of sharpening to a razors edge. To sharpen a knife, just clip the knife blade into the blade guide, and stroke the diamond abrasive over the edge using an easy, natural sharpening motion. The Aligner Prokit comes with Coarse, Fine and Extra Fine stones, as well as a serrated knife attachment and packs into a rugged plastic case.
In addition to the three stone Prokit, we carry DMT's the full range of replacement stones in Extra-Extra Coarse (120 Mesh) through Extra-Extra Fine (8000 Mesh). The Coarser stones are great for edge repair, while the 8000 Mesh Extra-Extra Fine gives the sharpest edge available with a bonded diamond abrasive.
For a really deluxe set-up get a couple extra stone holders along with the ProKit and never need to switch the stones in the holder as you go through you're sequence of grits. The Aligner, like all DMT sharpening products, can be used dry or with splash of water.
Aligner Prokit Plastic Case Measures 6.5" by 7.75" by 2.875"
Aligner Stones Measure 4.36" by .89" by .19" (111mm by 22mm by 5mm)
