I have always used wet stones, 3 grits, for plane and chisel. But ya have t
o flatten the stones now and then, which I do. And all the water and slurr
y is a tad messy. I use some small diamond "stones" for the pocket knife,
and it works well. Saw they had 3X8" diamond stones for sale on www.dmtsha
A purist would only use a real stone, but have any of you used the diamond
ones??? I'm tempted after the good luck I've had with the small ones.

Be aware you should use oil to prevent rusting, mineral oil or cutting
oil. I like mineral since I use it for other things too.
