MPOWER’s 8” Double-sided Stone history
Launched over 7 years ago, our unique hybrid laminate manufacturing process has stood the test of time.
Since then we’ve improved many aspects of the 8” Bench stone. Not least with the development of “Rust Free” Aluminium cores.

Aluminium Extrusion has proven to be a super consistent material that supersedes the accuracy that could be reliable achieved by machining tool steel as a core.
It also has the added advantage of being 100% rust free. The core is Anodized which again is a superior hard wearing finish. Tougher  than that of either Black Oxide or Nickel Plating. Anodizing provides an incredibly flat finish which allows our Diamond Stones to be the flattest stones available.

FREE STYLE – Recess Design
Our non-linear Freestyle Recess design ensures that there is always an intersecting evacuation channel no matter which way the blade is positioned or moved on the surface. Lapping fluid suspends the sharpening debris and flows through the channels helping to reduce clogging or pasting of the diamond plate, which prolongs the period of sharpening and maintains abrasion rates.

MANUFACTURE – Pressure Bonding
The two plates are pressure bonded to the core using a high specification oil and solvent resistant 3M adhesive. The result, a diamond stone offering the performance and flatness of the highest standard.

10 YEAR – Bench Stone Guarantee
Our new Diamond Bench-Stone Kits are now so tough.
They’re covered by a “no quibble” 10 Year Guarantee. (Double the industry standard)
Even if the damage is down to years and years of regular sharpening, MPOWER will supply FREE replacement Diamond Plates + FREE shipping within the 48 contiguous states*
*an “at cost delivery charge” may apply for delivery outside the 48 US states

FAQ, Hints & Tips

Bedding In
All new diamond stones from any manufacturer will feel very coarse to the touch regardless of the micron or grit size of the diamond. This is quite normal and after the first couple of times being used, the stone will bed in and the difference in grit can be noted by touch alone. However there’s a grit number on it just to confirm what you thought.

No Pressure
An easy light pressured sharpening stroke is all that is required to gain optimal abrasion rates from any stone in the Diamond Cross range. Excessive pressure is not recommended as it can literally tear the diamond particles from the nickel plated bed.

We recommend using our unique fully synthetic lubricant.

Dangerous Tools
Warning all the tools mentioned in the above text are very dangerous in the hands of the young, inexperienced or untrained. We highly recommend only experienced users attempt to sharpen tools.

Can the double sided stones be used to flatten water stones?
A coarse or extra coarse diamond stone can be used to flatten a water stone; however, it will cause the diamond stone to wear. We recommend using a diamond lapping plate which has been designed specifically for this purpose.

At first sight it seems sturdy and very well crafted.

Pierre Koudelka

Just received – my double-sided 300/1200 diamond stone from M Power’s new product line. Honestly, my first impressions were very good. The stone was true, it felt good, very heavy, cut nicely. I prepped the stone and started using it. The 300 side was very aggressive so far I haven’t seen any deterioration of the diamond surface,

The kit may be overly generous but great for beginners as it also comes with a strop, blue wax, lubricant, magnetic holders, white cleaning block and a substantial case, what more do you need.

M Power stands behind their products with a 5 year warranty and their customer service has always been admirable. . I definitely would recommend it to my friends.
