    I bought a two stage (one course wheel and one fine) electric sharpener at Bed Bath and Beyond. Just turn it on and pull the blade through the slots. Very sharp blade thereafter. I have had it a few years. Think it was less than 50 bucks.

    The best knife sharpener is an old Grandpa at a boyscout meeting.

    Its not so much about what you use, its about how good you are with it. I've had the same stone since I was 9 years old, and I can turn any knife into a razor :)

    I've been shaving with straight razors since the early 70's and have always used wet stones. I don't think you can get much sharper than a razor that gives a close comfortable shave.

    For a monthly refreshing of the razor I now use a combo 4000/8000 Norton for honing, and a linen/leather strop for daily preparation.

    I imagine that if you have a good edge angle on a good piece of steel you could attain a shaving edge with the above.

    The Work Sharp is a really great knife sharpener. I would like to see them possibly also make a 600 grit belt.
    I always used a Lansky Diamond but, recently switched to the Work Sharp.
    It gives you a really fast shaving sharp edge. You might occasionally need to remake or refine the blade point which is an easy task.
    I'm extremely impressed with the very professional razor sharp edge that I get. And it's much faster than the Lansky AKA about 2 minutes and it produces a beautiful looking clean edge.

    Has anyone seen the Warthog V-sharp? It is super easy to use an it makes any knife extremely sharp. Check out some of the you tube videos if you have a chance and are in the market.

    Just found this thread on a search. I'm looking for a good sharpener. How has the Work Sharp measured up?

    The wicked edge is the best there is period, but they are about $350.00. Check out the demos on their site. Wicked Edge Precision Knife Sharpener

    USPS just dropped off a Spyderco Sharpmaker a couple of weeks ago. They had a sale on and I ordered one. Haven't used it yet, but am looking forward to sitting down and sharpening a bunch of knives that have been neglected for a while. I watched Spyderco's video online at their site and it sold me on the unit! Looks a lot easier than trying to maintain the proper angle on a flat stone--which is the way I've done it for years--and the reason some of my knives haven't been sharpened for awhile!

    Here is a link to their site in case anyone is interested: Spyderco Knives | Byrd Knives | Sharpening Tools & more - The Spyderco Store

    I bought these two about a month ago. Used the Presto for a major overhaul of my kitchen knives and have been using the II-slot on the Henckles for touch-ups every couple of weeks since. Both work great and are super easy to use. My knives are literally razor-sharp for the first time in a long time.

    I have a Lansky Crock Stick with medium and fine 9" ceramic rods. I love it.
