Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone (Click for full size)

The Fallkniven DC4 Diamond Ceramic Whetstone is a popular combination whetstone made for accurate knife sharpening in the field. Small and lightweight, the DC4 is ideal for keeping on you when travelling by foot. For a more compact whetstone, take a look at the Fallkniven DC3 or, for a larger whetstone, the Fallkniven DC521.

The DC4 features two different sharpening surfaces; one is a fine diamond whetstone of 25 micron, while the other is a fine ceramic whetstone, made of synthetic sapphires. If your knife is dull, it is recommended that you begin by using the diamond side, which will restore the wedge shape of the blade's edge. Following this, you can de-burr the edge lightly using the ceramic side, in order to get a razor-sharp edge.

The DC4 is a very low-maintenance tool in the sense that it can be used dry, without the need for any lubrication from oil or water. Every now and then, it is recommended that you simply clean the stone in warm, soapy water.

A major benefit of the DC4 is that, while the stone will become worn over time, the sharpening surfaces will remain flat, helping to aid efficient sharpening. The supremely strong surfaces can be used to sharpen any type of steel, including hard powder steels. At first, the sharpening surfaces may feel overly coarse, but this initial roughness will diminish after use.

After sharpening your knife, Woodlore recommend the use of Ice Bear Camellia Oil to protect the blade from rust and corrosion.

Fantastic bit of kit, perfect for travelling with. Fastest postage to the highlands ever. Thanks Woodlore!
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Sam Barnes on 9th April, 2014
I'm very surprised. The diamond side takes of steel very fast. The other side makes a razor sharp edge. Its a good idea to strip the knife over some leather (inside of a belt) after sharpening. It works very good and vast on small folding knives too.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Grischa Rulle on 17th March, 2014
Incredibly handy, small enough to fit in a pocket and produces a lovely sharp blade.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Peter Orchard on 9th March, 2014
Lovely product, just the right size, seems to work perfectly.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Kenneth Aitken on 27th January, 2014
I received the falkniven DC4 from my wife along with other items from Woodlore, I am like many others delighted with this. I also got the Sundance Solar Lighter, which looks really good and of solid construction, however, by Now the 17th of January, I have not had enough sun to try it out so far, I have no reason to doubt that it will work ok. I also appreciated the free Bronze Woodlore badge included with the order.

Very happy. Worth the money already. Nice size and very good at sharpening my Bush Knife. Well packaged and arrived as promised. Instructions and a bill of sale. Very professional and a credit to Woodlore. Oh thanks for the sticker.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer John on 17th January, 2014
Very efficient, a few strokes are all that's needed to put the edge back on my Morakniv. Ideal for the field. Both this and the knife I ordered with it arrived the next day, first class service.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Clive Edwards on 27th November, 2013
Service amazing as ever, arrived the day after ordering, thank you. Bought with Anniversary set of 2 knives, looking forward to having a go using it to sharpen them!

Sharpening stone, double sided, works well. I keep mine in the Ray Mears Leather Tool Roll. Worth it - Good kit. Ten out of ten.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Ade Larsen on 23rd October, 2013
This is a great piece of kit. Small enough to not take up much room in my pack, but still large enough to be very useful. I have used it as soon as it arrived and it has been with me on my last trip. Fantastic!
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Graham Lucas on 19th October, 2013
A great product that improves as your sharpening technique gets better.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Gary Hockley on 11th July, 2013
Excellent bit of kit, one for the essentials pouch. Cannot fault it, sharpens to a nice edge, takes a little breaking in as it is a little rough out of the packet, other than that, spot on.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer William Parker on 29th June, 2013
Great sharpener, I haven't used mine yet but got this as I have used them before.

High quality item received beautifully packaged and on time. Thanks.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Nicholas Evans on 11th June, 2013
I'm very happy with this field sharpener; it has restored knives that I have abused over the years and now they're razor sharp again. It even sharpened all my kitchen knives so it keeps the wife happy too :) Thanks Woodlore...

A great pocket size stone for anywhere at anytime, works beautifully on any blade without the use of oil or water! Two thumbs up.

In one word - sexy! In two words - damn useful!
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Lukas Cerny on 18th March, 2013
A great portable piece of kit. Just what you need if you've been using your knife a good deal in the field.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Paul Cobham on 11th March, 2013
Once more a prompt delivery. This stone has given such an extreme edge on my field knives that my wife insisted I do the same to the kitchen knives. The stone is a good size for a rucksack as well as the kitchen drawer.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Mr Lee Poole on 30th January, 2013
Great stone.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Stuart Whiting on 1st January, 2013
This is a top stone and sharpens well. I am very happy with it. Just one thing, the cover it comes in should have a belt loop to be able to carry with you at all times. Thank you.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Keith Hindley on 11th December, 2012
Love it. Makes my in-the-field sharpening a pleasure.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Daniel Sutton on 30th November, 2012
An excellent conveniently small whetstone, I have yet to bed the surfaces in properly, but that will come with time. The Woodlore branded case is a nice touch too. Delivered next day - excellent service!
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Mr I Jago on 21st November, 2012
Great bit of kit, ideal size for field sharpening, follow Ray's advice on sharpening, and you too can give your blade an edge that will shave the hairs from your skin!
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer David Crute on 11th November, 2012
I was indecisive about which stone to buy to keep my Gransfors axes in good condition. Price led me to this one and I am not disappointed with the quality of this whetstone. It is easy to use and a practical size for my small hands. What was great was that it came with a leather holder, which I didn't expect! Quality yet again, thank you Ray and co for going that extra mile to source good quality equipment.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Mrs Tracey Wiffen on 19th October, 2012
Slips easily into your pocket and works very well, I now have 4 very sharp knives and not much arm hair left. Again, an excellent service from Woodlore.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Paul on 2nd October, 2012
Great product, just be careful with the diamond side - it removes metal very quickly. Great for touch ups and removing nicks in the field.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Adam Howarth on 1st October, 2012
Received the sharpening stone and started to sharpen by scandi knives straight away. Love it. Got my knives sharp without too many problems. A handy piece of kit to keep in your bag instead of the bigger stones.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Phil Mattin on 21st September, 2012
Just pure quality, the perfect size; don't leave home without it.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Martin Carroll on 19th August, 2012
Arrived the next day, very robust. Perfect. Thanks very much
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Eamonn James Corbett on 8th August, 2012
An excellent sharpener for pocket and survival knives, especially at the price! Just be careful not to have too sharp an angle on your knife when using it as the initial roughness of the diamond side will scratch anything above the bevel.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Carlo Makhoul on 14th July, 2012
Great field stone; a good size and works well. It looks of lower quality then I had expected with some glue visible that could have been cleaned and the ceramic and diamond sides glued slightly askew giving it a cheap look. Works well though and that's what counts.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Ben on 8th July, 2012
I use this on my small forest axe and my Mora knife. Hones both to a razor in minutes. No oil and little maintenance required. Perfect for a minimal kit trip.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Joshua James Covel on 1st July, 2012
Watch the video to see just how excellent this item is... I honed my Morakniv in about a minute per side!
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Andreas Losekann on 8th June, 2012
Great for in-the-field use. A bit coarse on the diamond side to begin with but evens out pretty quickly. Unbelievably fast delivery. To Sweden in 2 days!
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Andreas Kjallman on 29th October, 2011
Ordered 1330 on Thursday, arrived 0900 the next morning!!! Only took 2 minutes to get my Mora from dull to razor sharp, Highly recommend picking up this stone! Small, compact, lovely lovely sheath and will last a life time. To quote Ray :) ' If you don't look after your kit, how can you expect it to look after you '
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Ciaran Rooney on 19th August, 2011
Easy to work with and it's practical with the two different surfaces. Gives a very sharp edge.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Niklas on 17th June, 2011
Brilliant piece of kit, as the leaflet that comes with it says, it's a little rough at first but it soon smoothes out and becomes a joy to use. Sharpens very quickly!
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Tavis Carrott on 9th June, 2011
The simple things matter. A very nice cover/case with the RM logo embossed, a great whetstone which was a lot lighter than I expected and the usual great Woodlore service. Why haven't you got one already?
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Mr Richard M Ashton on 6th June, 2011
Good quality and portable, perfect to keep on your person when out and about and need to sharpen your knife. Tt feels very rough and coarse when you first take it out of the sleeve, but don't worry as it will soon mellow.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Craig William Turner on 27th April, 2011
This DC4 Whetstone works perfect on my workbench at home! It'll put a razor sharp edge on a dull beauty in no time flat!
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Stephen George on 8th January, 2011
Great tool and perfect size; trues up your knife super fast and super sharp. I don't use nails to hold the stone in place, but rather opt for a non-slip mat/shelf liner. I can place this on almost any surface and hold the stone right in place. It tucks away cleanly into the same pouch along with the DC4 too.
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Dan Metcalf on 27th September, 2010
If you really love your knife you should have a DC4 Diamond-Ceramic Whetstone. I bought mine with the Mora Training Knife. Very small and great price all round. Thanks for referring this product.

I was looking for a small stone to carry with me. I found it. Top quality in a leather sleeve.

The only way to sharpen your field knife. Simple and easy to use, weighs very little. Your knife is no good blunt!
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer Clive West on 18th February, 2010
Dear Woodlore team, I take this everywhere I go in the field, quality is great and very handy just to slip into the pocket. My advice is dont lend it out around the fire, everyone wants to try it, and it's hard to keep a track of who used it last. Regards John Whitmarsh
Fallkniven DC4 Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone reviewed by customer John Whitmarsh on 25th January, 2010
I bought this product along with the Mora Training Knife. Quality product, great price and small enough to keep in any pocket - a must to keep your knife sharp and ready for any task.
