What is a diamond abrasive tool?

A diamond abrasive tool is a cutting tool with diamond grains fixed on the bottom parts of the tool via a metal bonding material.

Bond is one of the prime factors when selecting a diamond abrasive. The bond used dictates the rate at which the metallic powders wear down and expose new diamond crystals at the surface, thereby maintaining an abrasive cutting surface.
