Sounds good news!
Any news on the DMTs suitable for ceramics yet?
Looks as if Tuffy for one could have done with them a day or two ago.
I think like it or not ceramics will stay some people like them for salads and women like them because of their light weight.
I also know a few riggers use them for dyneema although that is since they firstly won't buy knives with good steel and most of them cannot sharpen their knives .

I've got them in stock, just need to do a little testing and then get them up on the site. I'll try to get after it this coming week.

Clay, I know you have some new stuff coming out. When are you planning on putting everything on the website? I am also interested in the DMT stones.

I've read through this whole thread but I still don't get how the Swat thing works because I'm a dunce.

Please could anybody who has one (Clay? Curtis?) do a video of how to use it?

Just lost my explanation post.
The jist of it is. The swat is on the bar between the stone and vise, waiting to be adjusted.
You choose your angle for your stone using angle cube and tighten in place.
You move the swat into place, matching its face to the stone face and tighten it into place. Now drop it out of the way, and proceed to sharpen.
When you change stones, you simply mate the next stone's face to the swat, and tighten it into place. Angle is maintained. A face to face meeting.

The swat allows you to easily maintain the same angle, regardless of different stone thicknesses, with out mucking about with the angle cube.
The face of all stones will meet the edge of the knife at the same angle.

Hope that makes sense.

The swat will be a great addition.
