•A 1”x 5” flat diamond stone;
•A surface with a large radius for sharpening plain edges and a small radius for serrations;
•Three grooves, including a wide radius channel for de-burring and a narrow radius channel for honing fish hooks, etc.;
•Includes a suede leather carry case and an instructional DVD.

All it takes is a few strokes on the compact sharpener’s replaceable tungsten carbide blades set for a 40-degree angle and your knife is ready to cut. Size: 2.75” x 1.06” x .30”. Weight: 1.5 ounces.
