Some of you, I am sure, travel a lot with knives. I am out and about right now, and I have a Shun and Rodrigue knife with me, but does anyone have a good travel suggestion for keeping blades sharp in terms of sharpening accessories that pack well?
Taking an end-grain board isn't going to happen, but I often travel with an Epicurean board even though they aren't that knife friendly. That is better than that one time I brought knives and only had a glass cutting board in an extended-stay hotel.
A loaded leather strop rolled up? Maybe.
I've even thought of choosing one knife, carving a space out in a balsa wood block that would fit the knife AND into a box and load the other side with a compound. That way I have storage and can flip the balsa over to strop. Just an idea.
I'm just wondering what other people do.
