I struggle to get mine razor sharp

I took my hard-to-sharpen ďBuckĒ knives to ACE hardware and they sharpened with a laser sharpener in about 2 minutes.

We will see how it lasts in the field soon.

The Warthog works pretty decent with you disability it would be a good choice in my opinion. If we were closer I would volunteer to sharpen em for ya just to listen to some of your stories about cars.

Fixed blade systems such as KME, Warthog, and Edge Pro are fairly easy to learn to get a good edge with.
I prefer to use wet stones, but you have to have patience to learn free hand.

I once had to wait for 5 seconds in line to get a snow cone. This exhuasted all the patience I ever had, and explains my inability to sharpen knives.

I have the WS it works great for me, but I don't use high dollar knives. I don't know that I would use it for expensive knives.

Default knife sharpening help...

This is the best thing I have ever bought and used to sharpen kitchen and pocket knives:



It works GREAT, and I even use it to sharpen my 2-blade German Kinetic broadheads!!!!!

Disclaimer: it will only work on 2-blade broadheads that you can remove the blade from the ferrule.

After using this machine, knives will effortlessly slice thru tomatoes, and broadheads will easily shave hair from your arms!!!

I would never put a knife in one of those.
What do ya'll do when you don't have one of these gizmos, or replacement blades for your Havalons?
Sharpening a knife is such a simple thing, I don't understand the reluctance to learn .

I've owned lots of sharpeners. This is a MUST have in the field but I sharpen everything with it at home. Best $30 you'll spend.

Well, Mr Holier Sharpener than thou, some of us canít get it, no matter how much we try. Iím almost 61yrs old. Iíve tried dozens of gadgets and ways to sharpen knives over the years, and I just canít get it. On the few sharpeners I have been able to figure out a little, it still takes me forever to get a really sharp blade. The electric sharpener I posted above is a dang good machine that works awesome and makes blades shaving sharp in a very short time.

So you keep doing what you do, and Iíll keep doing what I do, and weíll all be happy.

And btw, if you read the OP, he said he was unable to use most regular sharpeners due to him having a stroke. I put forward a great option for him!!!!!

Sharp maker or Work Sharp angle set. Anyone can sharpen very sharp with these except for some steels like S90v an M4.

I like that. Seems like a good way to learn how to free hand on stones.

I donít have to use it because I know how to sharpen a knifeÖ
Itís basically a grinderÖYou donít put a grinder on good knives. At least I donítÖI am sure it works great, if you donít mind removing a bunch of metal.
