    Do you use a sharpening service?

    I sharpen my own but I wouldn't mind trying out a a sharpening service at a local knife shop. I could see myself taking a knife to a professional if I really screwed up an edge. I've sharpened knives of friends but only if they are cheap or mid grade knives. I don't really produce a factory...

    DMT 4" stone or Credit Card?

    I keep a Fallkniven DC3 in my backpack. It's mostly used on smaller knives such as an Opinel 6 and Ontario GI Camp Knife. I also keep a white rubber pencil eraser rubber banded to the DC3 case to clean the stone after sharpening.

    favorite knives that don't get EDC'ed....
