Product Description

DC4 Diamond Ceramic Whetstone 32 x 100 mm Knife Sharpener 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 Leather pouch is included How to use your DC whetstone: If your knife is dull, we advise you to start with the diamond stone After restoring the edge to original shape, de-burr the edge lightly with the ceramic stone in order to get a razor-sharp edge. Use no oil or water. Start by laying the blade flat on the stone, raise the blade spine approx. the thickness of the blade, and start moving the knife in circular motions The ink trick: Color the edge with a felt-tip pen You can check your progress in sharpening the knife by observing where the color is removed How to check the sharpness: To check the sharpness of your knife, pull the edge very lightly on your finger nail If it cuts, the knife is certainly sharp enough for most tasks. Break-in-period: Upon delivery, your new DC whetstone will appear very coarse This coarseness will disappear when the tool is put to use

I got this for back packing. Originally I tried an EZE-LAP Diamond stone(600 grit), it was too aggressive, and never got my knife very sharp. Next was one of those pocket sharpeners with the preset angles you just pull your knife through, which is a complete waste if your knife doesn't have the exact angle of the preset angle, also if you have a chip/bend in the edge they are useless. Then I made my way to Rothco's G.I. sharpener, such a waste, the thing is good for only minor touch ups, might as well find a stone on the ground. Eventually I settled on the only thing that worked which I found an older Lansky kit in my closet, took out the course and medium grit and that worked well enough.

Fast forward to present day and this DC4 sharpener was recommended to me by an online friend. I decided to try it out. Remember weight is always an issue while backpacking. This comes out to 2.85oz W/sheath, which is about the same weight as my other Lansky system. I loved it right from the start. The diamond part will shave off metal, which is what I want it to do. I wanted a semi aggressive diamond stone to work out chips/dents in the field. The ceramic side is perfect, it gets to slicing paper very nicely from a very dull edge. In the woods, all I need is to make wood shavings, chop some branches, and that's it. If you want shaving sharp, well, why? If your at home...... I have Soft, Hard, and Black arkansas stones, but that's home. I also like the leather sheath, it stops the stone from wearing away my packpack, and isn't heavy. The seal between the two sides is holding nicely, I'll report back on how long it lasted if it ever fails. From the other reviews, it sounds like the seal will never fail.

When I'm out with a high-end blade and it either strikes rock or i drop it 40 feet off a rock face (don't laugh,"happ sh*#ens!) and I have to do a little emergency surgery on the edge, this little tiny pocket powerhouse is the best of maybe 8-10 of the similar variety (all different makes and models from other companies to try and find which sharpening or profiling tool works best with which blade in the field, as one size does NOT fit all and not all pocket "portable" field stones are the same) this is the one I use to bring my higher end blades back to working order.

Not an expert with a sharpening tool but the diamond side does great heavy work and the stone side makes your blade sing Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" til I can get home to some more heavy duty tools that will set my blades straight again.

For the price and compact nature of what you're getting, it's a bargain compared to many other stones the same size that cost the same within a buck or few but come nowhere near this little guy's ability to fit in a utility pouch until needed. I always feel better when this one (out of the aforementioned 8-10 pocket varieties) is with me.

You just can't really go wrong. Unless you don't know how to hold these without losing a pinky tip. There is admittedly, an art to that. Practice at home on a dull blade before you take your D2, San Mai, or your VG10 blade out and slip and lose a pinky. Grown-ups only--there's not a ton of edge to hold on to so be smart and be careful.

Oh, and no water or oil needed. Hope this helps! I'm pleased and I'm picky about who and what touches any blade of mine.

Perfect size and a all around good stone. I use it on a regular basis. Put 4 small nails in sheath and use them to hod stone in place on a log or such and works like a bench stone.

Yes, this DC4 is a very high quality sharpening whetstone.
Two surfaces, a course diamond bonded to steel and a synthetic side which is like a medium.
I like the size, that you do not need water or oil and it's hand hold able.
This and a strop is all you need to keep your small edged tools in top shape !
Quality...not like those crummy tool outlet diamond stones.
I just refinished three drawknife blades with mine....much easier than with my hard Arkansas stones.
A good buy !

The diamond side is great. Every other diamond stone ive had has lost all its diamonds after a couple uses. This one has just smoothed out and got better. Would have gave five stars but I had to flatten out the ceramic side with another diamond stone. Once I flattened it with a course diamond I used a fine diamond stone on it and its a much smoother now. Its probably about the same as my spyderco now. Its getting smoother with use. And now that ive used the diamond side on a few knives and used it to flatten an arkansas stone the diamond is smoother and does a great job. I would definately buy another.

This is my third DC4. The others haven't worn out, I just like them so much I made sure I have one at home, glovebox, and backpack. Diamond one side to fix a damaged or neglected edge, and ceramic on the other for honing to a razor's edge.
Well built and small enough to forget in a pocket yet big enough to be effective and safe to use.

This stone is a great addition to any EDC bag. Not too big for the pocket but the smaller DC3 is more pocket size.
This is not a fine stone. I like to use the diamond side just enough to clean up the edge from chips then the ceramic
Side. This is not a fine stone. After I run the ceramic side I take a black arkansas stone and finish it off. Does work very good and fast getting the blade ready for a finer stone. Glad I got it.
