Felco Ceramic Sharpening Stone £17.65
Many people prefer to use a carborundum stone, but they’re usually too large and cumbersome to carry around with you. This is a major upgrade from the ‘wet and dry’ stone. Measuring just 10cm (4in) long, it easily slips into the pocket. It has two sides – medium and finegrained – of high-purity corundum, and was perfect for tackling larger and smaller blades.
