No going back, this is the sharpener I have been looking for all my life  :thumleft:
It is just getting better since they add more stone options

Never use any oil on diamond
You can clean diamond with water/dishwashing liq

That does work to a degree, try the eraser on the ceramic and see, then you can wash water and dawn.

 Been a mission to find honing oil that I like locally to use on my Arkansas stones (3in1 oil & paraffin mix could substitute); searching usual suspects  BNT, Sharp Edge etc showed no stock however found some on Camp & Climb website... order arrived in 2 days needless to say am impressed... stocked up on 3 bottles plus bought a Kershaw OSO Sweet on a whim  8)

I have industrial sized erasors to clean my grinding belts. Although, Pep stores plakkies work even better

So I am so confident in sharpening blades that ai told my boss ‘I can’
So he handed me a very blunt Wave and I told him tomorrow I will return it sharp.
Well, my left hand is smoothly shaven…it is sharp  :3some:

I sharpened my PM2 last night but i did not start with the Diamond so the edge did not turn out as good as i wanted. Will redo it today.
