knife sharpner

I use Edgemaker from edgeMaker site designed by crack babies
I skip step 3 (seems to dull the knife) Step 4 is the most important

I got all my wives (yes all of them [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]) knives cutting the hairs on my arm (std Lincoln Montana sharpness test) - or cutting paper - in about 2 minutes each - while watching football!

my hi-skoul metallurgy make me think using steel to sharpen a knife is far superior to[list]stones for the following reason:[*] work hardens the metal/doesn't grind it down[*]edgeMaker system requires no skill (unlike a stone)[*]cheaper than stones

also works on hunting knives. Any other favorite sharpening methods? My Gerber sharpener works similarly

Re: knife sharpner

I will second the recommendation for the Edge Maker knife sharpener. I just got a set about a month ago and love it.
