Default Best simple knife sharpener

Iíll admit it....I donít have the patience to spend a lot of time sharpening my knives. Does anybody have a favorite sharpener that works quick?

Both warthog and worksharp are simple and effective. Worksharp will eat some metal if you over do it though

I use a smith diamond stone. Works very fast. I was a natural stone guy forever, but really prefer the diamond stones now, because of how fast they will sharpen a knife

I use a smith 3 way but these are too easy. I keep one in every vehicle and my four wheelers.

Lanskey diamond sharpening set works really good. Razor sharp, and fast! The stone version works good too, just not as fast.

We have one of those that came with some kitchen knives my wife bought. I've never been able to put an edge on ANY knife with it. First time I've ever seen one recommended. Maybe I'm doing it wrong?

Worksharp here as well.

That said, I recently received an Outdoor Edge that has the changeable blades as a birthday gift. It got a bit of a workout this weekend and held up well. I’ll definitely be keeping it and a few spare blades around just in case.

I let a friend use it recently while he was processing an elk. He said it took 3 separate sharpenings before he had a good edge. I don't know...I've had good luck with it on my knives.

These are awesome.


I have a worksharp I just bought. I like it. The edge probably lasts longer than the Smith above, but that little Smith is super handy to have around.

Lol at the variable speed 2x72 knife grinder. #metoo

I have a diamond stone and a hard and a soft Arkansas stone for touch up work. I do 95% of my sharpenings on the belt grinder though.

This. I've posted about this sharpener on here before. It does a great job and puts your blade at the right angle, something a lot of folks seem to have difficulty with.

I must have a dozen sharpening systems and none of them work for me. Finally gave up. There's a knife sharpening trailer that is at tractor supply in Dripping Springs about once a month. $4/knife and they will shave a hamster.
