First post so go easy!
Just getting back in bushcraft/ultralight backpacking. I have always wanted a nice knife but I wont spend the money on it mainly because I have little idea on how to care for it.
To start with I have bought a Frost Clipper (http://www.greenmanbushcraft.co.uk/c...fe-clipper.htm) and a stone (http://www.greenmanbushcraft.co.uk/c...whetstone-.htm)
I have watch a couple of videos on youtube, and experimented with some old pen knives etc, but I dont want to upgrade my knife until I am happy I can care for it.
****** Stops beating about the bush *********
Basically what I want to ask is...
"What stone would you recommend for out in the field, and for at home" --- Ideally I would like a dual sided one for the field to keep the weight down but I am unsure what I should be looking at.
Any and all advice will be welcome, please just bear in mind I dont want to spend loads of cash on something whilst I am still fine tuning my technic etc.
Thanks all in advance.
