    I am lousy with a sharpening stone. Anyone recommend a good knife sharpener I could buy?

    This type of ceramic knife sharpener is the easiest, fool proof method that I have come across. Course side, and a fine side. You can sometimes find a Rapala version of this at Wally World. It has a gray body. There is also a cheap red one that will be in the camping section that is fine side only, and it works fine.

    The best thing about them is that they are fool-proof. No angles to worry about and easy to put in a pocket.

    if you do alot of knives often, id recommend something like this

    http://www.consumersearch.com/knife...ond-hone-3-stage-professional-knife-sharpener

    if your doing just a few kitchen knives along with a filet and hunting knife, id recommend 4 -10" oil stones, 1 each of course -medium and fine and a Arkansas hard stone, once you learn the stone you'll never look back, it's not that hard to learn, just requires some patience, and the ability to hold a 15 to 17 degree angle when sharpening, you'd be surprised how many people run knives backwards across the stone which rolls the edge

    Parker[/rquote] vince when your cutting up fish or deer you should start with a sharp knife, you use a steel to dress the edge up, the lansky is made to sharpen the knife and the steel is made to help keep the edge, the lansky is nothing you would want to use in the heat of battle:rof2::rof2::rof2:

    If you want a perfect razor sharp edge that anyone can do, go with the lansky! I carry a ceramic stick in my pack for touch ups, but I dont solely sharpen with one.

    :D Heat of battle is a good way of putting it. :D

    If I go inside to 'take a break' from cutting, I end up on here. :D

    I love my lansky system. I can sharpen my knives and my son's Magnus Stinger broadheads to hair shaving sharp.
