The 3 micron 1x6" Jende Diamond Resin Stone is a polisher and leaves a bright mirror with a slicing edge. It is equivalent to 6K grit and leaves a finished edge that is more than acceptable for almost any knife or tool. It works best in conjunction with the 15 micron, 9 micron and 6 micron Jende Diamond Resin stones and sets the stage for stropping to even higher levels of refinement and polish.

The Jende Resin Diamond Plates are designed to be used as part of an all-diamond lineup that has a longer lifespan than the already wide ranging 10 grits of Jende Diamond Films. This long-life lineup includes the Jende 1x6 Diamond Plates in 120, 300, 600 and 1200 grit, then the 1x6 Diamond Resin Stones in 15, 9, 6, and 3 micron, followed by Jende Poly Diamond Stropping Emulsions with the Jende Leather, kangaroo and nanocloth strops

The 3 micron diamond resin stone is splash and go and meant to be used with water. Let it air dry between use. Size is 1" x 6" x 5mm in size and mounted to a stainless steel blank. Even though the 1x6 size is meant for use with the Jende JIGS for Knives, Edge Pro, Hapstone and TSProf sharpeners, it is also a great size for a slip stone, field stone or a pocket stone for knife sharpening on the go, or to remove unwanted burrs.

Abrasive: Diamond

Ideal place in a sharpening progression:

  • Starting grit for polishing or touching up a tired edge.
  • After medium grit sharpening stones (1K-4K grit).
  • After Fine belt grinder grits (600, A6 Trizact grit).
  • Before progressing to a finer polishing stone, film or strop (8K+ grit).
  • After the 9 micron diamond resin stone or 9 Micron Jende Diamond Film.
  • A final stone for respectable sharpness on many knives and tools.

On More Traditional Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel Edges, the 3 Micron stone easily works on steels between RC 52 and RC 65 on the Rockwell C Hardness scale. On softer end steels such as X50CrMoV15, AUS6, 440B, and most stainless steels used by many kitchen knife makers like Henckels, Wüsthof, Gunter Wilhelm, F Dick, Victorinox, etc., this stone easily maintains and sharpens, leaving a superior working edge, especially for kitchen use. 3 micron may reach the upper edge retention limits of these softer steels, though.On the higher end of the hardness spectrum of traditional steel edges made with steels like 1095, 52100, 440C, Aogami White, Shirogami Blue, O1, W1, etc. The 3 micron diamond refines the edge further, and leaves a very sharp, polished edge that is ready for use or more refinement. The resin bonding of the stone keeps the diamonds from chipping out the harder steel's edge.

On Carbide Forming Steel and More Abrasion Resistant Steel Edges such as VG-10, D2, M2, S35V, S90V, etc., The 3 micron 1x6 Jende Diamond Resin Stone is more of fine grit stone. Diamonds easily cut through both matrix steel and carbides, forming a consistent bright mirror. The 3 micron edge on these steels is more refined and more of a slicing edge. It can be used as is, or to be further refined with with the 1 and 0.5 micron Jende diamond films, or Jende Strops and Poly Diamond Emulsions.

Hacks and Tips:

  • Use a moderate amount of water when sharpening with this stone to avoid the black swarf buildup. A cleaner surface will cut faster than one with a lot of swarf.
  • If using this stone as a final or polishing grit, keep the black swarf viscous and it will produce a slightly more refined edge.
  • Lap this stone ONLY with a Jende 2-Sided Glass Lapping Plate and Silicon Carbiode powders. Lapping diamonds to diamond only wears the diamonds down, and doesn't revitalize the resin stones.

The Jende Diamond Resin stones can be used in conjunction with oil stones (such as Norton India and other carborundum and Arkansas stones) if the blade is wiped clean before and after switching stone types. They can also be used in a mix and match progression with other synthetic and natural sharpening stones, as well with other brands such as Shapton, Sigma, Suehiro, Imanishi, Spyderco, King, etc.
