The Pocket Pal is foldable and it also features a preset carbide blade for quick recovery of dulled edges. Carbide inserts can be used for straight edges to quickly set dull or damaged tools. Ceramic stones can be used with standard or serrated inserts to provide a polished smooth edge. Both carbide and ceramic inserts can be flipped to extend sharpening life.
The Pocket Pal weighs only 1 ounce and is 3.5 inches long and 1 inch wide. After use, wipe the sharpener clean with a damp cloth and dry with a towel.
