Yes we use an Autosharp 5 for sharpening tungsten carbide tipped knives, we use Kemet diamond compound Grade: 1-KD-C2 which is 1, we purchase this, the lubricating oil, cleaning fluid & plates from  and they have a distributor in the USA   Sorry I do not have a handbook for the Autosharp 5, but you can always email or phone me for advice. 

Best Regards

Is anyone still using a Shandon Autosharp for sharpening tungsten carbide knives?  I need a copy of the handbook, and I need to see what reagents (pastes, etc.) I would need to buy to put an old one which we found into service again!
