Viking Whetstone Pendant by Wazoo Survival Gear
Viking Whetstone Pendant
The patented Viking Whetstone Pendant modernizes a traditional Viking tool using world-famous genuine Arkansas Novaculite. It may look like a traditional pendant-style necklace but it can aid in knife or tool sharpening whenever you need it. Designed as a great general-purpose fieldstone for knife-edge maintenance, with a medium fineness (600-800 relative grit size). Each stone is carefully chosen, hand-cut, ground, and drilled. Each Whetstone Pendant is hand-tied using a unique knot that we call the “Napoleon Claw” and inspired by Viking/Celtic knotwork.
4 DIFFERENT GRIND SHAPES
- 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
In a survival scenario, the #1 resource is your mind. The #2 resource is the tools you have on you. A knife is considered by many as the most fundamental survival tool. To survive, both need to remain sharp.
It is often said that a dull knife is a dangerous knife. A sharp knife is a safe knife. Dull=Dangerous. Sharp=Safe.
Keeping a knife sharp, especially while out in the field, has been an issue since blades were first carried. Over 1000 years ago, Iron Age Vikings actually had a solution to this problem: Whetstone Pendants. A small piece of stone used for sharpening that had a hole so that a leather strap could be tethered.

A great little sharpener! I put this on my pocket and neck knife sheathes and it makes a great part of a little kit. Great price and speedy delivery, too.
Great shipping time and decent item to have. Thank you!
Amazing piece in functionality and just what I was looking for in a necklace. I don’t wear gold and silver. This piece will be worn forever and used often.
I love this viking whetstone pendant its excellent at sharpening while out in the field it even works very well with blades that have a recurve. You can just tell this is a quality item just by holding it, it sharpens very well
Works great convenient. Looks Viking cool.
