For a long time, I have used different types to sharp knives but I never really liked them. What is your favorite?
Ps, the crap you buy on line where you just pull the knife through a set of angled rods don't work for shit. Edge won't last more than a couple of days.Whetstone is best but it takes time and patience. Also depends on the hardness of the blade. A couple of my older hunting knives take a half hour or better to get shaving level sharp but would hold an edge through skinning 3 or 4 deer. They would slice through a 1/4" piece of leather like butter. They just don't make steel like that anymore unless you spend a lot of money.
Many thanks for finding a thread! I had searching but not enough.I believe I started a thread about sharpeners in the Field & Stream forum, and Blackhorse gave some advice there. I can't find it though. But there is another...
So, i love a good sharp knife. The issue is, that I am not sure what to use to put and keep a fine razor sharpbedge on my knives. I grew up using a medium arkansas stone, but now, it seems all diamond sharpeners and quick pull through sharpeners. I dont just want a quick edge. I want one...www.brothersofbriar.com
