Diamaze® Blades, sold under the brand name Diamaze PSD (Plasma Sharpened Diamond), combine the unmatched hardness of diamond with the benefits of an extremely sharp cutting edge.
Cadence, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of the Diamaze® brand of Plasma Sharpened Diamond (PSD) blades in North and South America. These blades are manufactured by GFD, based in Ulm Germany.
GFD is the worldwide leader in the production of diamond micro-parts and the manufacturing of diamond coated and sharpened cutting blades.
The technological breakthrough achieved by GFD on the Diamaze® blades employs two specialized processes: the nanocrystalline diamond coating of a carbide blade followed by the plasma sharpening of the blade. To manufacture such a technically superior razor blade a nanocrystalline diamond coating is first applied to a carbide blade. Then the ultra thin layers of pure diamond are polished by an innovative plasma sharpening process developed by the GFD researchers. The blade is polished until the cutting edge is sharpened to only a few nanometers, therefore consisting of merely a few atoms. This process manages, for the first time, to combine the hardest material in the world with the sharpest possible cutting edge
