Fallkniven Line of Sharpening Equipment
Most of us know Fallkniven for its excellent fixed and folding field knives. What you may not know is that the company also has a full line of sharpening equipment as well. Two of the products that caught my eye are the folding FDC and FDD sharpeners. The handle on these stones flips open much like a balisong to expose the stone and make a handle for the sharpener.
The FDC stands for Foldable Diamond and Ceramic sharpener. It has a double-sided stone with a 25-micron yellow diamond whetstone on one side for “forming a new, thinner edge” and a 9-micron white ceramic whetstone for polishing the edge on the other.
The FDD stands for Foldable Double-sided Diamond sharpener, and it has a dual-sided diamond stone. It has a rough yellow titanium aluminum nitride 44-micron stone on one side for taking out dings or other blade damage, and a 25-micron yellow diamond whetstone on the other side for normal sharpening.
