Diamond is great for putting a final edge on a blade, but not so good for removing a lot of material. Diamond stones will get clogged with steel bits. When that happens, they stop cutting. Diamond grit is “non-friable”; that is the grit doesn’t wear down like ceramic grit does. When a diamond stone stops working, you have to wash it with soap and water to restore it to sharpening condition.
