Re: Knife Sharpener

It came today and it’s half decent, it sharpens which is what I wanted, probably get a better edge from better equipment like oil stones etc but it does a good enough job.

Re: Torch

Yep, those ones with the different levels of lighting and SOS/strobe button wind me up no end because I forget which one it’s set on.

Knife Sharpener

I’m looking at buying a proper knife sharpener, mainly the victorinox pocket sharpener for about £10. As it will fit in my EDC pouch.

Does anyone have one or recommend another type?

Now I’ve got a load of cheap Chinese rubbi...
