These stones are from DMT. Trend and EZE-Lap also make diamond stones.
I must say, I was amazed at the performance increase after properly cleaning these.

This one is more artsy than instructional, but I think it still conveys the process.
Materials used are Brass, Walnut, Cherry, and steel. The wood was finished with Boiled Linseed Oil, Paste Wax, and Shellac.
The shape of the beam was inspired by an antique marking gauge I once saw.

? Some cheap things are okay. Precision tools, maybe not so much.

The best way I've found, SO FAR, of installing brass threaded inserts in wood.

The walnut scaled knife is for my Son-in-Law. The purple heart scaled knife is for me, and features a insert made from a scrap of the walnut scales. Both knives use Hock violin knife blades.

I made a custom reamer to ensure the exact hole size I needed. You can see how I made it here:

While making a pair of marking knives, I ran into the problem of not having a drill bit that would make a tight hole for the pins. So, I made my own reamer out of the same exact round stock I was using for the pins.
This is one of my first forays into working with metal, but it was fun, and a success (well, except the part where I made it backward at first). I hope I've provided someone out there with a little knowledge or inspiration.
