The EZE-LAP Diamond Hone & Stone LPAK5 is a set of five diamond-coated files. The files come with the following grain sizes: extra coarse (150 grit), coarse (250 grit), medium (400 grit), fine (600 grit) and super fine (1200 grit). The files are easy when sharpening in difficult to reach places. Think of sharpening chisels, scissors and saw blades. Because the files are light-weight and compact you can easily take them with you. The files come in a yellow storage case.
To make the distinction between grain sizes easier to spot, the files are enhanced with differently coloured handles. This colour corresponds with the grain size of the sharpening surface. For the extra-coarse 150 grit this is green, for the coarse 250 grit this is black, for the medium 400 grit this is purple, for the fine 600 grit this is red and for the super-fine 1200 grit file this is blue.
How to use the files
The diamond-coated files from EZE-LAP can be used wet and dry. The advantage of sharpening with water is that the stone is lubricated and the sharpening residue is removed. With wet sharpening only use water never oil. If you only use the sharpening stone for dry sharpening we recommend that you regularly clean the surface. This is how you remove sharpening residue from previous use(s) and make sure the file stays in great shape.
We recommend using the files with care. You will notice that the diamonds will quickly do what they are supposed to do and that you only need little pressure to end up with the best results.
