Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
There is an old adage – “you are only as sharp as your knife”.  

Carrying a small yet effective sharpening stone allows you to easily maintain a keen edge while away from your bench stones at home.  

Moreover, a small whetstone that can be kept on your person is a good idea in case you are separated from the rest of your equipment.

While many small sharpening stones are either just too small to be useful or poor quality (or both) and are typically only one grade, the Fallkniven DC4 is a very well-thought out stone.

Both half the length and half the width of a typical bench stone, the DC4 is a very useable size.  Being narrower and thinner than bench stones also keeps the weight down.

At 32x100mm (1.26×3.94”), the Fallkniven DC4 whetstone easily fits into a pocket.  

There is a coating of fine diamond powder (25 microns) on one side and a very fine ceramic surface (made of synthetic sapphires) on the other.  

Generally diamond stones are quite aggressive and take metal off your blade quickly.  Ceramic is slow to remove metal but gives a fine, sharp edge.  Therefore, the combination of diamond and ceramic is a very good one.

Unlike many sharpening stones, this type of stone can be used dry.  It doesn’t require oil or water while sharpening but does benefit from occasional cleaning with a little soap and water.

Ideal for sharpening your bushcraft knife while out and about, the DC4 can also be used to sharpen your axe very effectively.

The surfaces of the stone might feel coarse to start with but will become smoother and better after some use.

For all the reasons above, the Fallkniven DC4 is amongst Frontier Bushcraft founder, Paul Kirtley's essential wilderness equipment and comes highly recommended by the rest of the Frontier Bushcraft team too.
