This has probably been covered a fair bit before, but I'm thinking of asking Father Christmas for some knife sharpening gear. I have a few quite nice knives, and also some not so lovely old kitchen knives, but we're looking at low-frequency use here. I also don't want something that takes up a load of space as I don't have that, and finally - but importantly - I lack sharpening skills. So is there a reasonably-priced foolproof system out there that I could point Father Christmas towards?
I expect that I'll receive a thousand opinions on this one but I will particularly value the experiences of others who don't really know what they're doing.
