Ah got it pocket unit. Okay makes sense, used my new one on some Kitchen knives tonight, then had to duck back to the Sharpmaker to get it right. My free hand skills are sadly lacking.
I could get on board with a CBN/Medium Combo. It'd make for a great outdoor/camping stone when you know there might be a chance of causing more than your average day to day wear and tear.
I wanted to say that I think this idea is excellent. I don’t need the portability personally, but this would make a great “all in one” for any beginner or someone who could put the portability factor to use.

Yeah, we can’t have it all! I’m just glad they have their amazing stones in so many different offer sizes and shapes.fixall wrote: ↑Thu Mar 07, 2019 6:38 am
Thanks! I’ve been wanting something of the sort for quite awhile now. Add a couple grooves to sharpen broadheads and fishing lures and it would literally be in my pocket at all times. I’m sure there’s a fantastic reason why Spyderco has never produced something like that though.
I had no idea there were still CBN Duckfoots to be had! If I would have known that, I would have picked up one of those instead of the Diafold. Although... I think I would prefer the Duckfoot if it had a 15 degree angle instead of 20 as I like to set the main bevel of my knives at 15 with a diamond/cbn stone and then set a 20 degree microbevel with the medium and fine stones.

I’m sure you’re probably right. I can’t imagine milling a groove into a sandwiched, two piece stone to fit a ceramic rod would be easy or cost effective enough to justify its convenience. It sure would be sweet field sharpener though! I’d have no issue paying $75 for something of the sort.
Hi Sal the only problem with he Duck-foot stone was it was set to 20 degrees and a base never came out for it to change the angle to 15 degrees, or less, I have heard of people making their own the other thing in my opinion that hurt it was a lack of instructions those never came out either.
