The Diamond Stone holder is made in solid Nitrile rubber; which has a great coefficient of friction which grips both the diamond stone it’s holding and the surface it’s placed on. Providing a stable platform to sharpen a huge range of household and workshop tools on.
Nitrile rubber has a good number of qualities but one of the most important to a Holder gripping Diamond Stones is that it is both solvent and oil resistant. Our friends at Trend (based in the UK) developed the highly successful “Lapping Fluid” for use with Diamond stones. And the DSH had to be resistant to both the Lapping fluid and any oil based lubricants.
We believe the Diamond Stone Holder is the first holder to use rare earth magnets that fit to diamond stones. Traditionally other large stone holders grip mechanically. Which works well providing you don’t wish to change stones or sides quickly. There’s virtually zero set up time to fit our Diamond Stone Holders to pretty much any steel based stone.
To increase the range of stones that the DSH can hold. The DSH was designed to slot into one another. This ensures a solid platform in which to hold smaller diamond stones such as the popular credit cards.
Save space in your tool bag and leave your clunky old bench stone holder at home. A Pair of DSH performs as well as any diamond stone holder on the market and weighs less than 1/5th of the weight of an old timer.
