Smith's Diamond Combination Sharpener

Whether you are in the boonies or working on the bench, and when you need aggressive sharpening and honing to a razor’s edge, you may want to consider the Smith's Diamond Combination Sharpener.

> Dual diamond sharpening surfaces for aggressive or fine sharpening
> Compact and lightweight, ideal for field carry
>Microtool sharpening pad and hook sharpener included
>Stone length: 4"L x 1"W.



I had purchased one of these last year and added it to my camping gear. Rather than worrying whether I would be able to grab it for a bug-out, I purchased a second one to add to the emergency box.

Multiple layers of micron-sized monocrystalline diamonds team with a unique sharpening surface outfitted with tiny holes to collect minute metal shavings that can build up while sharpening, allowing the sharpening elements to remain clean and unobstructed. Each stone has a micro-tool sharpening pad and fishhook sharpener. One side has a coarse 325-grit sharpener for aggressive sharpening and the other has a fine 750-grit surface for honing and touch ups.

A soft-grip handle ensures a firm grip, and the stones store inside the handle when not in use, which makes this lightweight tool ideal for stowing in a pack, jacket, or a vest pocket.

The Smith's Diamond Combination Sharpener nestles nicely between my Buck Packlite and my work gloves and is ready for stowing in a side pouch of my Large U.S. Military A.L.I.C.E. Pack with Frame (http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=426489) at a moment's notice.

These really work for me.

Have two of these Smith's diamond sharpeners and routinely have one with me whenever I go hiking or fishing. They are relatively compact and do a yeoman's job in the field. Use them to touch up whenever needed. Don't hunt much anymore, but definitely would take one of these along if I did.
