    Knife sharpener

    I have just bought a Gatco Edgemate Carbide Sharpener.
    I was getting p****d with 'knicking' my fingers on my blade tech.
    This pencil type device sits flat on a surface with a nice thumb notch. It is really steady and puts a great edge on the knife.
    Have now done all the kitchen knives including 2 Global ones.

    Around a tenner.

    I use a Fallkniven DC4 on most knives & some 2500 grit wet & dry stuck to a mouse mat for my convex ground F1. I then strop the blade after any sharpening to remove the microscopic burr. This usually leaves the blade in a condition that can shave hairs off my arm!

    Sharpener

    Hi

    Ive got a set of global knives, very nice - a tad brittle for an idiot like me though, ive broken the mini cleaver styled one completely and took the tip off the big chefs knife.

    Mind you, even as I broke them I knew I shouldn't have been doing what I was doing! the big chefs knife (and I dread to think how much they cost now, 70?), was broken pushing the last bit of meat into a mincing machine and guess what happened??

    Those sharpeners are pretty good too, I keep one in the kit bag.

    I need to borrow a grinding wheel to reshape the end of the knife now, whats the betting it won't work. Doh.

    Cheers
