Taidea outdoor knife sharpener with a whistle and compass - a versatile tool to have in your backpack. Tungsten carbide (dark rods) and ceramic rods (white) for sharpening plain edges and a tapered diamond rod to sharpen different serrations. Also has a whistle for emergencies and a compass - won't win any orienteering competitions but can save you a lap or two in the woods when you get lost.
Depending on the state of the edge, start with the diamond rod to get rid of smaller nicks in the edge. For sharpening, use the tungsten carbide sharpener first. Put light pressure on the blade and pull it through smoothly. Too much pressure here can result in removing too much material from the cutting edge.
Finish the sharpening with the ceramic sharpener by pulling the blade through the sharpener.
