    Henckel or wusthof make very good steels and knives, ive got the henckel but dont use it on the knives...im too afraid of buggering the knives.

    I sharpen all my knives and axes on a japanese water stone, I bought it off t'internet as i couldn't see one in the shops. It does a very nice job.

    If you want a cheapish solution then a ceramic steel from Ikea. I bought one just to see what they were like and now favour it over everything else*. I can get a shave sharp edge on a Clipper in no time.

    *Including Japanese water stone, Fallkniven DC3 & DC4 and diamond steels (too coarse imo)
