In a recent video entitled, “Are Your woodworking Tools Too Sharp? (How to use just one stone)”, James Hamilton (aka Stumpy Nubbs) offered a fascinating review of the types of stone that woodworkers have employed over time. Further, he acknowledged that for the purist, utilizing a progression of stones is an excellent method to achieve a razor sharp mirror finish edge.  However; for the average woodworker, an investment in a multitude of stones is not necessary. In fact, a single double-sided stone with a coarse and fine side, lapping fluid to remove swarf and protect the stone from rusting, a leather strop and honing paste is all that is needed for the average woodworker.

While Trend manufactures more complex sets, the product development team agreed that the market is in need of a set that caters to the DIY woodworker who wants to maintain, hone and polish tools at an affordable price point. The result of our effort is The Essential Diamond Sharpening Kit.

The Trend Essential Diamond Sharpening Kit contains: the Trend flagship double sided 300 coarse/1000 grit fine 8” x 3” bench stone, (Item# DWS/CP8/FC), 100 ml bottle of lapping fluid, (Item # DWS/LF/100) , leather strop (Item #DWS/HP/LS), mirror finish honing paste (Item #DWS/MP/40), cleaning block (Item #DWS/CB/A), catalog, breaking in instructions, a sharpening booklet  packed in a heavy duty aluminum case. The aluminum case has spare room for the addition of a second 8” x 3” bench stone. The item number is DWS/KIT/F and the street price is $169. It will be in stock in time for the 2018 gift giving season.
