JIMSMEGG <> I can not claim to have used those particular DMT's though I have used different diamond plates & films. The thing with them is the diamond particles are so hard and are affixed stationary to the base so on anything but the most wear resistant of steels they are very aggressive. Not a bad thing, but a factor. Light laps are the key.

They are better than nothing, but I still reiterate my earlier suggestion if you can swing it...

I've used them even though I don't sell them on the site. Yes they work but 2 things you need to be careful about. First, they cut faster than stones so make sure you take it easy and don't over sharpen your knives. Second, the holes in the diamond film can catch the tip of your knife so just orientate your sharpening motion to make sure you don't lead with the tip. Otherwise you can break of small pieces of your knife tip.

They work pretty well so have at it.

The fine and extra fine should do. Likely just the extra fine being 9 micron will be all you'll need to use Unless there is a nick or some other issue with the edge the coarse is out of the picture. Edge trailing strokes work best with those IMHO. A very light touch, as stated above, works well. Can't say I would use them for your application but in a pinch I'd give it a try. Gently.

Personally, I'd just start to replace them now because your going to soon anyway. Use them for sharpening junk knives and lawnmower blades.
