Knife Sharpener discovery - tiny EDC suitable -
I think I just made a useful discovery, at least a quick google didn't find anyone else writing about it.

I like ceramic knife sharpeners, but wanted something really small for an EDC tin.

Step up the ceramic lathe turning insert:

https://www.ceramtec.com/spk-cutting-mat...-ceramics/

I just bought (ebay) a pack of these, the square shaped type with the dimple in the middle, top middle of picture. £1 each, posted.

They are a little bigger than an aspirin. The flat faces will bring your knife to a razor edge, the sharp edges will cut metal off, for remedial work.

They also scratch glass easily, and as you'd expect they cut metals. I have no doubt they would smash toughened glass but I haven't tried it.

The dimple type are easy to hold, for something so small.

I use a round carborundum stone, the sort they sell for sharpening scythes and hooks, hit it with a hammer and you can break it into 2 or 3 pieces small enough to go into a bag or a pocket-ideal for sharpening knives and the like.

The little Blade Tech work well but don't work on knives with a Scandi Grind. Use them lightly as they will really rip metal off your blade if you apply too much pressure when sharpening.
