    Diamond Hone Electric Sharpeners

    very simple, very fast and it won't hurt the temper and makes a surgical sharp blade.

    I agree that the Chef's Choice will get your knife scary sharp in just seconds.

    I've had a Spyderco sharpener around 15 years(and bought one for my brother). I was looking at the newer sets and don't see the diamond slides offered, for going over the stones when a little more work needs to be done. As one reply said about it being a pain, the diamond slide takes care of that problem....

    I've used Lansky sharpeners for years with no complaints and very sharp blades.

    A little more expensive, but worth every penny.

    Now does the grade of steal that the blade is made out of determine anything in when you are choosing a sharpening system?

    generally not. Avoid cheap sharpener systems for fine steel though not so much about hurting the knife as its a waste of money.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Thanks for talking me into the Spyderco Sharpmaker. My wife got me one for my anniversary gift, and I just sharpened my Benchmade Mini Barrage. I can shave my arm with it.

    Also, she bought me a 2nd Mini Barrage with a partially serrated edge. Hey I need a knife for shorts season!! Course I had to buy her a flatscreen TV for her office in return.

    I should have bought spyderco sharpmaker from the start. I've wasted so much money on useless stones and cheap sharpeners. The total for the wasted money is more than it would have cost me to get a quality sharpener to begin with. I just cant get the hang of the sharpening stones! Sharpmaker will be bought in the near future.

    I use a piece of tungston from a light bulb that is inserted into a piece of deer antler. I think I paid about 10 or 15 bucks for it years ago. If you know how to work it, it will put an edge good enough to do surgery on your blade.

    A few passes on it every couple of weeks for your daily carry knife and your good to go. I don't worry about cutting open a box or whatever with my daily carry, or carry a second knife for utility work since one knife will do the trick with very little effort to keep it very sharp.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I have been using this sharpener, my knives have never been so sharp. Easy and fast to use. Been sharpening all our scissors too. This thing is sweet!!!

    I am talking about the Spyderco Sharpmaker. Thanks for the recommendation.
