What I Like About This Product:

The two things that I like about this knife sharpener is  functionality and size.  This little sharpener really works!  Having both carbide blades and ceramic  stones make this Little Pal  a very good tool to use. The carbide blades are for coarse sharpening and the ceramic stones are to get a finer sharpening of that knife.  Not to forget the round diamond coated rod that works well for serrated edges.  You put that all together in a package that fits in your pocket and what more could you ask for.

What I Would Change About This Product:

This little sharpener works so well for me I do not have any changes for it.

Final Remarks:

I have used this Smith’s Pocket Pal for many years and it has worked great for me.  Is this what I use to put a good edge on my knives at home, No!  But it goes in my backpack and I use it in the field to touch up my knives when the need arrises.  I highly recommend this knife sharpener to keep your knives sharp!
