The Skerper Pocket Stone is a compact sharpening stone with two sides. One coarse side with diamond particles to sharpen damaged or blunt knives. And one fine ceramic side to sharpen your knife or axe razor-sharp. The sharpening stone will easily fit in your backpack or pocket and is therefore always there when you need it. As such you will never have to use a blunt knife ever again.
The advantage of the hard ceramic side and the diamond-coated side is that the surface will remain flat. As such. you will enjoy this Skerper Pocket Stone for years to come! In addition, with these hard materials you can even sharpen knives made from extremely hard powder types of steel.
Use and maintenance
You don't need water or oil to use this stone. You can immediately use it and when you are done simply pop it back in your pocket. We do, however, recommend rinsing it off occasionally with lukewarm water and perhaps some soap.
Diamond needs to be sharpened before use. When you just start using the sharpening stone it is much coarser than the final grind. First try out the sharpening stone on larger tools before you start using it on finer tools. The diamond-coated side of this sharpening stone will feel finer after using it a couple of times.
