    Hi Sakowsm
    I was in a similar position, then I brought a lanskey sharpener kit (I think that how you spell it) it’s very simple to use and only takes a few minutes to keep the edge
    best of luck Will

    Have you ever tried the Gatco or Lansky sharpener system??

    Very easy to use and give great results even in the hands of the worst "sharpeners"!

    2,743 are really good IMO - they do a cracking job on my kitchen knives when needed.

    And my apologies for what seems like a stupid web catch on their www address with this autocomplete thing.

    buy a cheff's choice 120 you can get razor (shaving) sharp your self ijust a few minutes. After the first time you can get the edge back on it it within 30-40 seconds.

    Not sure if posted on here elsewhere - apologies for being too lazy to look it up before posting. But there is a thread on British Blades and possibly Bushcraft UK under '5 sharpening kit'. Aside from discussing the kit, covers a little of the theory of what you should be trying to do.
    Nothing per se wrong with the Gatco/ Lansky etc type sets - they just provide a means of holding a consistant angle - which tends to be the key.

    Hope that helps - good luck.

    I've used the Lansky and until (very) recently I had a Chef's Choice 120 - but I prefer the Spyderco Tri-Angle because the blade angle is consistent for all shapes & sizes of blades plus you can sharpen curved blades like gut openers.

    They are about 50 on eBay and lots of info on YouTube like
