A good knife will serve you well for decades, but even the best ones — like Opinel's terrific pocket knives — need a tune-up every now and again. But with one of these, you can keep any blade as sharp as the day you bought it.
The stone is sourced from Lombardi, Italy, where the quarries have been famous for producing the world's most effective sharpening gear ever since the 15th century thanks to a perfectly uniform blend of quartz and carbonates.
What good is a knife if it can't cut through anything and everything? This sharpening steel keeps your blade as sharp as whoever's using it. The portable design means you can take it with you wherever you go, and use it whenever you're most in need. Remember: Sharpen away from your body, and at a safe distance from the rest of your crew. Group activities are fun, but this isn't one of them.
Consider holding your everyday knife in a more secure place than your pocket. This leather carrying case is hand-cut, -stitched, and -burnished from four-ounce American tanned leather, and will only look better with age. It's also made to order, so each one will feature it's own unique natural variations. The single grommet lets you hang the case from a lanyard, while the open design offers easy access when you need it most.
