    For at home use i use a lansky set with 3 different hones and a pedestal mount.
    Very easy to use and works very well!

    depends on the knife but if a good one i would only use a welsh slate and slurry stone or the likes. simple to use and you wont look back once you have tried it,atb wayne

    +1 on that! a whet stone picked up from a car boot sale for about 50p normally, i've got heaps of them, a nice fine one and a rough one or the double sided type and an old leather belt or dog collar for a strop and you will never ever want to go back to anything else!

    Watch this series of vids, once you have the knack of it its easy and puts a much longer lasting edge on any knife



    cheers

    yes mate for shure i think you will like it and they certainly hold an edge for longer with a stone although a steel or a mechanical sharpener on first impression feels sharper it isnt the case it has just roughed up the blade and taken tiny amounts of steel,atb wayne
    if you bring your knife we can do that ,atb wayne

    hi pal it all depends on how bad the edge has become as to what i use, i have a diamond flat "stone" if its real bad and just to use on an everyday tickle up basis ive a lansky two rod turnbox system then this is followed up by a leather strop to de-bur it. another tip as a tickle up method is to use the bottom of a ceramic mug and draw the edge at your desired angle across it on the un glazed part.

    kind regards
