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

The DC3 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 DC3 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 DC3 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.

  Smaller and shorter than its bigger brother, its size will be appreciated as you're much more likely to keep this with your knife or in your kit bag.

  Light two sided sharpener that will keep the edge on your blade on longer trips. Effective.

  What an excellent piece of kit, so small, but still superb. The only downside I found was there is no information in the packaging to say which side is diamond and which is ceramic, it took me a full 30 mins on YouTube to find a video that actually stated the thin gold coloured side is the diamond, use this first and the thicker grey side is ceramic, use that to finish off or to touch up an already fairly sharp knife. As a first time user of a Fallkniven Whetstone that info would have been useful. I did try it out on a couple of old blunt knives, I still need more practice, but they’re not blunt anymore. It’s so easy to use when you know how. I love it, and the leather pouch fits perfectly in a side pocket of my brew kit.

  The stone was a bit larger than I expected. The person I gave it to finds that it's at its best in the home/workshop.
