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.

  This is a quality stone and perfect for taking with you on a camp. It’s extremely light and does a beautiful job of keeping your knife edge in pristine condition. Again, highly recommended and the service was first-class.

  Very happy with this purchase. The small size makes it a perfect addition to my compact toolkit and I love how the case doubles as a leather strop.

  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.
