SWEDFNDC4: Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone Sharpener (4" x 1-1/4")

We're happy to present something everyone has been waiting for - a combination diamond/ceramic whetstone that will handle all your sharpening needs. The DC3 and DC4 whetstones consist of a fine diamond stone (25 micron) and a very special ceramic stone, made of synthetic sapphires. The advantage of these materials, although they get worn, will still keep their flat shape this is important when you sharpen your knife. And, since these materials are the hardest we know of, they will sharpen any steel, even these extremely hard powder steels. You don't need any lubrication for these stone but now and then you should consider cleaning them with warm water and liquid soap. The stones might feel coarse from the start but will become smoother/better after some use. A leather pouch is included.

The perfect field sharpener
Got this for my deployment and am ordering another and the DC3; they're the perfect size and the extremely low maintenence make it perfect for keeping your blades at peak shape. Highly recommended. Protip: If you forgot your DC4 and need to touch up your blade, use the unglazed ring on the bottom of a ceramic coffee cup for a quick touch up.

best pocket stone I own
I've been through several pocket stones and rods. From the spyderco double stuff to all the differing DMT stones. The reason I say this is the best pocket stone is, there is ZERO maintenance. My favorite stone was the double stuff until I got a DC-4, the DC-4 doesn;t clog and need to be cleaned as often as the double stuff, and when you do clean it, all that is needed is water and a tooth brush. It is a bit on the coarse side when you first get it, but don't worry that works itself out in a few uses. This stone produces a nice edge with a lot of "bite", if you want a extremely polished edge like a straight razor, you'll have to strop it after using the DC-4

Very handy
The primary use for this sharpener is for use in the field, and for that it is quite useful. The size is perfect and it is supplied with a nice leather slip/case. The diamond side is quite coarse and I can envision using it only if the edge is very dull or damaged, but is nice to have available. You will be using the ceramic side for routine touch-ups. Extra care must be used (by lifting the blade to a higher than normal angle to the stone) when sharpening convex edges to ensure that the stone is contacting only the edge and not the radius . This is a great product.
