M Power’s Diamond Cross Diamond Stone Holder has a good number of advantages over it’s predecessors.
To start, it can hold a large range of different diamond stone shapes and sizes and not just the new Diamond Cross range either. From a solid 200mm bench stone to any old Credit Card diamond stone.
The DSH’s rare earth magnets lock onto the underside of the stone providing instant grip between bench/work-surface and diamond stone.
OK so there is a piece of non slip mat that can do that. Except that the DC DSH (unlike the spongy mat) provides much needed clearance. So when you’re sharpening a knife, the DSH raises the sharpening surface so that the knife handle doesn’t hit the surface that you're working on.
