Your on the go sharpening kit
« on: January 30, 2009, 02:37:58 AM »
So everyone can have a tabletop Sharpmaker and set up rods and whatnot...but what kind of kit do you have that you can take "on the go", as in outdoors?  A kit that can fit in the palm of you hand or a pocket.

I got those pen like diamond coated rods, and lansky triangle stone that's half the length of sharpmaker stick. Although I think I've sharpened one knife with them and it was a buddy's. Sharpened a lot of fishing hooks with the lansky stick thou.

Usually a Fallkniven DC3 or DC4 sharpener...best pocket stones I've used.

I did make this wallet strop/sharpener with a DMT extra fine plate. I use it mostly for pocket blades.

Good suggestions; I ended up going the route Cgjones and Spork were on with flat, rectangular "stones".

I just ordered this lot from ragweedforge.com...these three are all relatively small "traditional" supplies.  The diamond stone isn't exactly traditional, but I assume the technique is very similar to an actual STONE.  The viking and Finnish stones are more for the final edge.  There's good descriptions of them at www.ragweedforge.com

Two sided diamond plate
Viking whetstone
Finnish whetstone

Lansky puck sharpener (for my hatchets and machetes)
And how can you order from Ragnar without getting another Mora?  You can't!  I also got a Mora #1 8)

A great vid I'm sure was posted here before, but interesting.  I think that's the exact diamond plate I'm getting with the sleeve and all...

I have a Smith's Pocket Pal knife sharpener that my brother gave me.  It's got ceramic, carbide and diamond sharpeners.  Really good for touching up hollow and flat ground blades but if I need to reprofile something else, I will have to have my brother use his professional lanksy system on it.

I have a bladetech carbide sharpener that I could take, but TBH I'd hope the knives I have have good enough edge retention to last me for the short period of time I'd be outside using them.

I'm back!!

I picked up a DC4 not long ago for taking out and about with me.

Try not to be the person who blunders around and causes everyone else to get out the way.  Everyone else thinks you're a utter...

 :think: Besides your on the go kit what does everyone use to sharpen with :)

I mainly use my Sharpmaker but I also have a large bench stone don't really know what kind a guy from work gave it to me :D and a DMT smaller diamond stone and a Smith 2 in 1 sharpener which gives a good edge without much effort on a lot of my knives :tu:

I got varying result with all of the above except for the Sharpmaker though :D

I totally agree. Those carbide sharpeners just scrape metal right off the blade and the edge retention goes down the drain as well. I hate it...

I never said I loved them but it being a Benchmade product thought I would give it a go :D Mainly for use on a gaped blade (someone else's most all the time ::) ) Then put an edge on it with the DMT  :) Just gonna give it a few days though :pok: :D
