Fallkniven CC4 Combination Sharpening Stone - Ceramic/Ceramic
The Fallkniven CC4 combination stone is good addition to your sharpening stable and I am a real fan.
The CC4 is a combination ceramic/ceramic whetstone that will handle your finest sharpening needs. The newly-developed CC4 whetstone consists of a super fine ceramic stone (white side) (0,1 micron) and a ceramic stone, made of synthetic sapphires (dark grey) (1 micron). You don’t need any lubrication for these stones but now and then you should consider cleaning them with water and liquid soap. A leather pouch is included.
Dimensions: 32 x 100 mm
Weight: 51 g
How to use your whetstone
If your knife is dull, we advise you to start with a diamond stone. After restoring the edge to original shape, de-burr the edge lightly with the grey side of the ceramic stone in order to get a razor-sharp edge. The white side of the CC4 is a very smooth ceramic stone, it´s mostly used for polishing the edge. Use no oil or water. Start by laying the blade flat on the stone, raise the blade spine approx. the thickness of the blade, and start moving the knife in circular motions.
The ink trick
Color the edge with a felt-tip pen. You can check your progress in sharpening the knife by observing where the color is removed.
How to check the sharpness
To check the sharpness of your knife, pull the edge very lightly on your finger nail. If it cuts, the knife is certainly sharp enough for most tasks.
There is also an option to add a nylon belt pouch OR our custom leather pouch which has the ability to carry a firesteel as well which is great bonus for carrying in the field.
When ordering the TBS Leather sheath the firesteel pictured is NOT included and is pictured to be purely representative of ability. If you wish to add a firesteel to your order please see the relevant Fire Lighting Category in Store
