Thread: sharping your knife

    sharping your knife

    hi I have a EKA swing blade knife but I don't know what the best way of sharping it would be. should I use a good oil stone 3000/1000 or get a diamond sharping stone /stick or a ceramic sharpener. I spend the money for a good knife and I want to keep it that way any advice will be helpful thank you

    There's several good knife sharpening systems out there. It's all about maintaing the correct angle.
    Personally I use the Spyderco triangle sharpmaker which uses ceramic rods. I always find the little but often approach is best for maintaining a razor sharp knife.

    I have a small oil stone that I use as needed and kept in my stalking bag.

    I use the ceramic 4 rod box set from Moray Outfitters for all my blades.

    your better with a sharpening stone , one with a rough side to take burrs and chips off then a smooth side for finishing, maybe a 250/1000 grit plenty on ebay

    I have a lansky in the workshop and a double sided diamond one in my stalking kit and after a quick tickle with the diamond one you could shave with it
