The Fallkniven DC521 Diamond Ceramic Benchstone is a popular combination whetstone made for accurate knife sharpening. It is the largest sharpening stone in the Fallkniven range, and as such is best suited to sharpening while at camp or at home. For a more portable whetstone, take a look at the Fallkniven DC3 or Fallkniven DC4.

The DC521 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 DC521 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 DC521 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.

  I have been desperately in need of a good sharpening stone since taking a more keen interest in bushcraft recently, so decided to try the Fallkniven after hearing good reviews. It's a really good quality stone that sharpens blades well (and easily) and for me it's a bonus that it should remain flat over time. Finally I can maintain sharp tools!

  I have a few of the smaller Fallkniven sharpeners for use in the field, but this is the largest they do, which makes sharpening a lot easier when used at home after camping. A little rough when first used but as it gets used it smoothes out and becomes a joy to use and any knife can be used for shaving once finished. A ++++

  The big brother of the smaller version, DC4. The bigger, the better. High quality sharpening tools. You get what you pay for.

  Excellent item, an absolute must for those who require excellence. For too long I relied on poor quality stones for sharpening and couldn't get the results I now get after regular sharpening. You get what you pay for.

  The larger version of the popular DC4 makes it easy to sharpen my knives at home without the hassle of wet stones. It is useful to have a rubber mat, and a stand for knives with thicker handles.
