Spent last year working on a diamond hone that would sharpen the ceramic cutter. Ended up with the 4 by 10 inch dursharp diamond hone in course and fine and a fine and extra fine, 325 grit, 600 grit and 1200 grit. I sharpen the cutter about every 8 to 10 alpacas using 2 combs. The wear on the combs is much less and they sharpen much quicker especially the 9 tooth. Instead of 2 maybe 3 alpacas per cutter/comb I easily double that with less wear and better cutting. The diamond hones run about $100 each on amazon.

As a beginner I really liked the ceramic cutters as I could shear much longer without having to change cutters, they stay sharp much longer especially on wool with dirt in it. also the shearing video's gave me the confidence to try shearing again.

These are literally the best thing since sliced bread! I shear about 70 alpacas/llamas per year and I can do about 15 animals per cutter. I do have to change the comb once, but they are amazing and worth every penny!
I have been shearing alpacas for 13 years up to 300 to 400 per year. The ceramic cutter on a Heiniger Oliva comb is still shearing great after 8 alpacas and 1 llama, handling kansas clay dust. If you don't sharpen your own, use these cutters.
I have been shearing Alpaca for 8 years now. I would usually get 2 alpaca on one comb and 2 cutters. The first time I used these cutters I did 6 alpaca on one comb and cutter. My shears stayed cool and did not use near as much oil. They are worth every penny.
