"Always keep your tools sharp, so you never have to sharpen them."

If you consistently maintain the edge on your blades, like a pocket knife, then you can usually avoid the aggressive material-removing sharpening process. That's why we created (or stole from the Vikngs) the idea of a portable sharpener. However, we took it a few steps further and made it a cool-looking conversation starter!

The patented Viking Whetstone Pendant modernizes a traditional Viking tool for sharpening and honing blades and tools. Unlike other whetstones, this pendant-style necklace features 4 different grinds, giving you the power to sharpen all your EDC tools, whenever they need it. Each stone is hand-picked, so no two stones are exactly the same. Style it how you want and make it as unique as you are.


Not all whetstones are created equal. That's why we've gone direct to the source and quarried world-famous genuine Arkansas Novaculite for all of our pendants. Arkansas Novaculite has a medium fineness (600-800 relative grit size), making it a great general-purpose fieldstone for knife-edge maintenance. Unsure of that last sentence? All that means is that it will work great when honing all of your everyday blades.


  • Pattern stones will have a unique design highlighting the natural colors of the stone that was quarried. These patterned stones often include black, blue, grey, and even pink colors. No two stones are the same.
  • Plain stones will be predominantly white or gray in color and have much less, if any, of the naturally occurring color pattern. They are perfect for someone who prefers a solid color.


  • Rounded Edge - Spoon/Hook Knives, Gouges, Seatbelt Cutters, Fingernail Cutters, Concave Blades, Large Serrations
  • Beveled Edge - Saws, Deburring, Small Serrations 
  • Hook Groove - Hooks, Needles, Awls, Spearpoints, Gigs
  • Flat Lap - General purpose for Plain Edge Fixed or Folding Blades

The history & evolution of a whetstone pendant

Keeping knives and tools sharp while out in the field has been an issue ever since blades were first carried. The solution to this problem dates back over 1000 years, to when Iron Age Vikings introduced a compact sharpening stone that could be tied to the body and taken into the field. This ancient but tried and true tool has become our modern-day whetstone.

$10 more for color, not cool

This is great, but $10 more for color! Cmon. Either way, will buy more as gifts.

Love this whetstone pendant!

It looks great. I’m wearing it day and night. I even sleep with it on and shower with it. It has become a part of me. I haven’t sharpened my pocket knife yet, because the knife is fairly new, but I will be using it when the time comes.
