There are a handful of undersized diamond stones out there made by dmt, smiths, and others that'll work. My gfs parents have the 3 in 1 system by smiths and it puts an ok edge on things and its very compact; however, if you really care about the knives you use, I'm going to second the idea of a knife roll and just bring your own. No use wasting time sharpening other peoples garbage, especially if you are on vacation.

320 and 1k is too close, especially for cheap knives If you are going with Shaptons, consider the 220 or 120 for reestablishing a bevel plus the 120.

Much better travel set than the Nubatamas.


Same thought but I would go with a 2K glass stone only. It still cuts fast enough and gives a nice working edge. I guess you could add the 320 as well if you wanted to save some time or were doing a bunch of knives.

The glass stones are ideal for travel. Light, slow wearing, fast cutting and splash and go.
