    I wanted to share this test, without haste.
    I started with sankyo, for now it's ok.

    ps, purple ds diamont, is the only one that I found made in Italy.
    costs 35 € in italy, 5 € more than montolit and sigma,
    with similar characteristics.
    norton and sankyo 25 €

    after 20 days,
    sankyo is ok, very fast in cutting.
    a bit of chipping, but it depends on the tiles in use.
    I have not seen any blade heating yet, even on cuts
    very long (120 cm). he continues fast without (sparks).
    we'll see if it continues like this.

    I used the old bysturi model,
    the 2 no.
    it's very similar to sankyo, I remember that bistury
    at the beginning it made too many chips. then with time
    much less.

    after almost six months,
    the thing becomes interesting ....
    I'm almost tired of seeing it mounted
    on my grinder.
    will it still last a lot? mystery.....
