I am after a small knife sharpener for a hunting/bushcraft knife (60 degre angle).
I found 2 mdls that could do the trick : Lansky Tactical "Blade Medic" & the Smith's Pocket Pal - Multi Function Knife Sharpener

Any suggestions ?

For an emergency sharpener in the field the Blade Mediic you've found is hard to beat.

I only have plain blades rather than serrated, so use an older version of this:

Only cost me a fiver and still going strong. Decent edge too.
