Welcome to The Gear List, a semi-regular series where we spotlight the best discounts and deals on tactical equipment, outdoor gear, and everything in between.

Any regular reader of Task & Purpose’s gear reviews has probably figured out by now that we love knives. From folding to fixed-blade, everyday carry to hunting, we love fine blades of all shapes, sizes, and functions. Nothing screams America like a fine piece of steel getting the job done.

Of course, knife maintenance is no joke, and that includes keeping your blades sharp enough to meet whatever challenge crops up that day. While we swear by the Smith’s DRET Diamond Retractable Sharpener for honing your craft, today’s sweet deal offers up a worthy alternative: the SHARPAL 6-in-1 knife sharpener and survival tool.

Billed as “a portable EDC field tactical knife sharpener” (whatever that means) on Amazon, the SHARPAL is an excellent outdoor companion for the backcountry explorer or avid hunter. Its functions include a V-notch crossed carbide slot for quick edge setting, ceramic blades for fine honing, a tapered Medium 400 Grit diamond-coated rod for serrations and hooks, a Ferro rod for starting fires, and a high-pitched emergency whistle — you know, just in case. The compact form factor also includes a lanyard hole and fits comfortably into a pack, toolbox, and pocket.

While the multi-tool build of the SHARPAL knife sharpener may seem like overkill, it’s not a bad tool to include in your bug out bag in the event of an emergency. And why not pick one up now: currently at just $9.99 on Amazon, it’s practically a steal — along with some of the other deals in The Gear List today. Check them out below, and as always, happy hunting!

These prices were valid at press time, but prices can change and deals do expire.
