Diamonds, like other gemstones, are mined and cut by hand. They must be hand-cut with the aid of special cutting tools called saws, which produce long narrow slivers that are extremely difficult to manage.
They must then be mounted on wheels or mounted on a wheeled frame to keep them stable during use. They can be purchased ready-mounted, ready-to-use, or in sets of various sizes. Inexpensive diamond Gopolli wheels, which are generally sold with the intention of being used with larger stones, are available for purchase. These can be used for regular sharpening as well.

Most modern automatic knife sharpeners also include diamond sharpeners, which are mounted on the same wheeled frames as regular diamond wheels. However, they typically offer fewer choices of size.
Some diamond wheels, which have different sizes of diamonds pre-mounted, can be purchased separately for use with traditional whetstones and manual sharpening devices.
