    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif) 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
    • 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

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