SOGSH03CP: SH03 Firestarter / Sharpener
SOG Knives

One of our favorite products of the year, the SOG sharpener is a great example of innovative design in a concise package. With a flat diamond sharpening pad, cylindrical ceramic sharpener (that can be use for serrations) as well as a fire starter (just in case), you have the makings of the perfect companion to any SOG knife or tool.

Good for daily carry
I carried this on my keyring for about 3 years. The ferro rod works great but I too have to glue mine back on shortly after purchasing it. The diamond file works well also but you have to be very light on the pressure, like all diamond files, or they wear out quickly. After a year my ceramic rod cracked around the middle but never fell off. I just had to avoid that spot when putting the final touches on my blade. It's not bad but when the ceramic rod cracked in a new place and the diamond file was completely worn out I didn't replace it. I'm not big on carrying a lot of stuff and it did keep my knife sharp. Plus it took a ton of abuse being on my key ring. I wouldn't use it in the field but for the bare minimum around town it works.

Shameful - don't buy it
Very nice tool. Compact and useful. But shameful quality. I had a Sog Flash II for more than a years, used it thoroughly and was very happy of it. But just as I opened the package of the firestarter & sharpener SH03, the magnesium stick fall off. Workmanship defect? Perhaps, but I'm leaving for the bush for the summer in two weeks and I don't have the time to ship it back to Amazon and wait for it to return. I'll glue it, but what if it happens to you outside and you just lose the stick while you very need it? SOG definitively lost my confidence. I'm glad I went to Ka-Bar for a fixed blade.

Pocket size but not sure about durability
The is a great pocket size sharpener. It's great for touching up an edge on my normal daily carry EKA knife. I have used it on my kitchen knives and Leatherman tool. I can't tell you how good the fire starter is. The rod for that dropped off the second day I had it in my pocket. I am now worried about the ceramic stone dropping off.
