Well I have all 3 grits on the DMT card sharpeners now and I can get a dull blade pretty sharp in just a few minutes :tu:

3 socket blanking plates with 240, 400 and 600 grit wet and dry stuck to them, or a teeny little whetstone I got from a carboot sale :)

I usually use whatever is available.  The top of my car window.  Bottom of a ceramic cup or dish.  Back of my belt.  I strop my knives on my hand or jeans all day long whenever used, so actual sharpening is always kept to a minimum.

I have a Victorinox sharpener for softer knives. Not too great, but OK in the field.

When it comes to travel - rent holiday houses tend to have the dullest knives ever - I usually bring one good knife and my Byrd Duckfoot sharpener. It´s not as good as my Sharpmaker, but faster and it puts a quite good working edge on most knives in no time. Love it!

Still, I may get a DC3/DC4 some day, for I never heard anything bad about them.

I've been trying out a Spyderco Doublestuff Pocket stone for the last couple months and it's not bad at all. I like the extra length and it seems to be a good alternative to the DC3/4s I've been using.

Here's something else to try, that I kind've stumbled upon.  I have two small, three inch long whetstones.  One fell and broke into pieces.  I looked at the small pieces, and put one in my wallet.  Anytime I really need to sharpen a knife, I take it out and go to town.  Your technique may need to be improvised a little, but it works in a pinch.

I don't have a pic of it by itself, but I carry a speedysharp everywhere I go. It's a perfect piece of kit that'll not just sharpen my knife or mt or whatever. It'll sharpen axes, lawnmower blades, even a stick of rebar if the need may arise. My pics aren't workin' at present, but it's basically a pocket carbide cut off tool.

Not only no, but HELL NO!!! It's simply a small cutoff tool. A small piece of diamond polished carbide welded to a handle. Here's pics of my do-it yerself, Cold Steel Ghurka Kukri Piggyback Kydex Sheath. Pics are pretty dark, but it's a double pocket for a firesteel & a sharpener that doubles as a firesteel striker.

I carry one of these.

http://www.knivesplus.com/eze-lap-sharpener-ez-201.html

Those are very similar to the DMT ones that I use :tu: how is it holding up :think: I was thinking of getting a few of these in the different grits as well :tu: I love those style sharpeners as they are very easy to carry in a wallet without noticing them :cheers:

So far it is holding up well.I bought it a year and a half ago.
I also need to get some different grits,fine works well but when
I get a really dull knife it would be a lot faster to get an edge with
a medium grit.

Yeah the different grits really make all the difference :) The DMT ones are holding up for me pretty good as well :cheers:

I've got one of these little Gerber pocket ceramic things.... think it needs cleaning though, do you chaps think just doing the hot water and soap thing will work?

I think a bin will do a cracking job myself.  :tu: :D

I think those things are horrid myself, but I expect soupy water will do the trick yes.  :tu:

I didn't throw it away, I was feeling evil so sold it for 20p at a car boot sale  >:D

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

Well that explains why it's rubbish then!  :D

OK, so now I need to decide what else to get.... is the DC3/DC4 a double sided affair?
