    I carry a fold-open diamond hone. It opens to about 1" x 3" and has one side coated with fine diamond dust while the other is very fine. I can hone the edge of my hunting knives very quickly. I wouldn't consider that sharpening, though. Quick field honing is all I need.

    The knife that I usually have in my hand is a Cutco. I can't hone it in the field, but I've never needed to. That knife has field dressed many animals and is as good today as the day it was new. Two thumbs up!

    Hey.......... I have one of those hanging off a magnesium/flint bar I keep in my pack. The carbide edge shaves the magnesium easier and throws sparks better than the hacksaw blade that came with it.

    I forgot about it actually being a sharpener.
    Now what ?
