The complete sharpening kit: MPower Tools' SB2 double diamond bench stone – side by side

Also known as the little brother of the 'Big Dawg' – MPower Tools' Side by Side (SBS) six-stage three grade diamond sharpening station – the new SB2 ensures 'a lifetime of sharpness' with a lifelong companion.

Thanks to MPower Tools' innovative manufacturing process, rather than having to throw a tool away due to minor wear and tear, damaged diamond surfaces can be easily replaced by the user, with any replacement plates sent free of charge within the first 10 years.

The SB2 stands as the second most comprehensive sharpening package available globally and is loaded with industry-first features. The process of properly sharpening a tool – whether a 6mm bevel-edge chisel or plane iron – entails multiple essential elements, all ingeniously combined in the SB2 and stored in the incredibly durable carry case.

Easier operation

Unlike traditional double-sided 200mm diamond stones that require setup for each grade, the SB2 sits ready on your bench, offering two sharpening grades of diamond, side by side.

Additionally, it’s the first diamond stone to feature two real leather-topped magnetic protective covers with both firm and soft grades of leather. Thus, you can seamlessly transition from two-grade sharpening to two-grade strop finishing, without interruption.
