    I have a Blade Tech one. Had it for about 18 months and it works fine. It is small enough to fit in a pocket and seems to be virtually idiot proof (hence why I use it!) and reasonably quick as well. You can get them in various colours and they were about 9.00 when I bought mine.
    Hope this helps

    Depends on the knife you have, I have a very fine diamond stone in my truck, for that emergency, when someone brings a blunt knife.

    Blade Tech type sharpeners have their uses, and I have one as a back-up, but please don't use them on any knife you value. They scrape the metal off the blade, such that even using one now puts my teeth on edge.

    Get yourself the 4 rod ceramic box from Lansky, available from a number of the trade members on this site, and you will immediately see and feel the difference.

    If you want something smaller, get the Fallkniven DC4 whetstone (DC4). It takes a bit more practice than the Lansky.
