How to Use the Pocket Pal

Sharpening Slots

  2. Pull the knife blade straight back towards you while applying light pressure.
  3. Repeat this action until blade is sharp.
Tapered Diamond Rod: Flat Edges
  1. Always hold the unit with the rod facing down. Place heel of the blade on the diamond rod closest to the unit.
  2. Hold blade at a 23-degree angle to the rod.
  3. While applying light pressure, push the knife away from you towards the end of the rod. Draw knife down so that the tip of the blade comes off the end of the rod. Repeat this action until blade is sharp.
  4. For the other side of the blade, you will need to switch hands holding the sharpener and the knife and repeat steps 1 through 3.
Tapered Diamond Rod: Serrated Edges
  1. Only sharpen the side of your knife edge with the serrations.
  2. Hold rod at 23-degree angle to the blade and move it back and forth through each serration until sharp.

I bought this based on the good reviews form here and from you tube. But through personal experience; this sucks.
the carbide blades just remove the material from the edge and the ceramic doesn't do much for it either; in fact it actually takes away the just sharpened edge and makes it dull. The "diamond" rod also doesn't do much for serrated blades as it just roughs up the area and doesn't create a usable edge.
Basically it sucks....
it hard to hold in place, it doesn't live up to it name except the "pocket" part, the carbide removes too much and the ceramic doesnt refine it enough and the diamond rod is useless and its has a very cheap; made in china look and feel.

Smith has been in the sharpening business for quite some time and this mini tool for sharpening is outstanding. All be it small, it handles serrated edges with ease. This is the specific purpose i purchased this. It does what others do at 1/3 the cost. I would highly recommend this to all. It fits in your pocket or backpack easily. It takes a lot for me to be impressed with sharpening tools and this does it.

This sharpener does not work very well. It is not easy to use without ruining your blade. You might use it in an emergency if you are very careful. Better to use a sharpening stone than this. The idea of an easy to carry sharpener is great but this one isn't. I would return mine but I tried it to late.

EXPERIENCE: According to the documentation, the Ceramic slot is for finishing an edge, or just touching up an already sharp knife. The Carbide slot is for repairing a damaged blade, and or sharpening a very dull blade. Most of my knifes are sharp, but two of them needed a touching up, and the third needed some serious sharpening!

According to the documentation, you want to place the knife inside the slot, keeping the tip of the blade at a slight angle downwards, and pull the knife towards you. And you want to do this for about 4-times. I found this to be enough to simply touch up an already sharp knife in the Ceramic slot. However, my super dull knife needed a lot more then that.

I used the Carbide slot to really get the edge back on my old knife, then I went through the Ceramic slot. I tested the sharpness afterwards, I felt it needed some more. I sharpened more in the Carbide slot, and then finished off on the Ceramic slot. After doing this twice in a row, I noticed that the knife was definitely sharper, and would cut paper.

One of my pocket knifes, is a serrated knife, which I use to cut rope with. Using the special serrated knife sharpening tool, I managed to sharpen each groove in my knife. Since the knife was pretty sharp to begin with, I didn't really notice any considerable difference in its ability to cut paper.

CONCLUSION: I really don't think this is the best knife sharpener out there by far. But when compared to a lot of different kinds of sharpeners, this is one of the best. I find it takes most of the guess work out of sharpening my knifes, and it seems to leave a good edge. Just remember that super dull knifes will indeed take longer to sharpen. 4 out of 5.

This sharpener does nice work with my CRKT m16 knife which has gotten pretty dull (i abuse my knives). The carbide blade reset it fairly quick, but def not in the 10 or so strokes the company says it will take. The ceramic finisher is a nice touch up. Cant say much about the "diamond coated rod" though, the serrations on my blade have always been sharp. I tried this with my Panga machete too, did a decent job but took awhile just to get a decent edge. This isnt for people who are really specific about their expensive knives, but if you have a couple edges that could use a good sharpen, this could be for you.

Pros: Carbide and ceramic blades are can be replaced. (The other side could be used too)
Very compact, stick it in your pack or in your glovebox and you'll never be without it
Very affordable, sharpens numerous times at a meager cost
Works fairly well, but it works

Cons: Set degree (20 or so on each side im guessing), but its general purpose so it works for me with a couple outdoor knives
Sharpening rod seems a bit cheap
takes a longer time to sharpen then one would imagine

Verdict: Overall a great product, and even if you are a knife enthusiast, keep one around, you'll never know when you'll need it.

This seems to be an okay little sharpener. And by "okay", I mean it will do a satisfactory job in returning a useable edge to your knife. It will NOT give your knife a smooth, razor sharp edge. Anyone well practiced in using a quality whetstone or other such sharpening system will probably be disappointed in the quality of the edge this product gives. I would recommend this sharpener for a lightweight emergency kit, where it would be impractical to carry a more bulky sharpening system. Just don't ever use it on a high quality knife, where a smooth, well-finished edge would be desirable.

This product is very easy to carry and works great. I am a professional chef working temp assignments and don't always want to pull out my own knife. I have this in my backpack and it works great sharpening knives where ever I work. I am going to buy another for my girlfriend whom also is a professional chef. I have nicer sharpeners that don't travel with me, but in the field where you need to travel light and lean, this is an excellent product.
