DMT new Aligner Pro Kit is a Made in the USA system that offers the unrivaled performance of the world's best diamond whetstones combined with the finest guided sharpening components. The kit gives hunters complete confidence they're sharpening at a consistent angle, ensuring that knives and tools have the correct bevel to perform at their peak. It features a rugged molded carrying case to neatly and securely store all contents: three 4-inch diamond sharpening stones, a diamond serrated knife sharpening attachment, a secure stone holder, a firm knife clamp/blade guide and easy-to-follow instructions. And since the kit is completely self-contained, it's a greener choice, too.
The included diamond whetstones feature precisely micronized single crystal diamonds in DMT's signature polka dot pattern, which provides an interrupted surface of tiny wells that trap metal debris ensuring clean, continuous edge contact. They come in three grits: Coarse diamond to quickly restore a neglected edge, Fine diamond for a razor sharp edge and Extra-Fine diamond to polish and refine a razor edge after sharpening with a coarser stone. The stones are wider than those in most kits to increase stability and reduce the likelihood of rocking the stone on the knife. The Fine diamond serrated attachment allows sharpening of notched and curved blades, and the knife clamp easily facilitates sharpening at seven different angles to match virtually any bevel.
The Aligner Pro Kit's knife clamp is made of glass-reinforced engineered polymer to prevent any scratching or marring. The kit components can sharpen ceramic blades as well as newer technology high-alloy steels, which conventional abrasives cannot handle. The diamond whetstones work in a fraction of the time it takes with conventional stones, and there are no messy oils to struggle with; a few light strokes are all that's needed. What's more, the multi-adjustable hinge clamp accommodates blades up to 3/8-inch thick, and the blade stop on the clamp ensures repeatable knife-holding placement. See a full how-to/demo video here.
