    been using lansky 3-stone system for about 20 years, outdoor and kitchen knives.

    very happy with it, consistent, not super fast, but very good results.

    pretty easy to make a scissor sharpening jig for the lansky as well.

    I use a selection of stones and steels, maintaining a constant angle on both is key. If your not OCD on things that cut being sharp then the lanski or any similar system that controls your angle is probably a good idea. Im a fan of a "micro bevel" on hard knives but it does mean you have to be gentile/careful hocking or cutting to bone.

    Got a soft knife no sharpening system will help you

    I use a shone to sharpen and then a steel in between sharpenings to straighten the edge
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Ring Geoff and have a chat with him after looking at the vid's. Make sure you keep a firm grip on your knives after sharpening as the old method's dont compete. Gutting/skinning a mob of goats 6-10 requires only 1 flick of the steel when using the Svord drop point to keep up that edge. Amazing tool .

    I use the edge pro apex as DAF pointed out, I'm sharpening the misses knives all the time as she's a butcher. Good bit of kit
    If its guns, tits or tyres it's going to cost you lots of money

    I'm using one of these Lansky Sharpeners :: Blade Medic Pocket Sharpener

    Only because I'm too much of a hopeless case to learn how to use a proper sharpener

    Double end grinder, buffing wheel one end with a basic jeweller s mix on it for finishing, other end of the thing is an off the shelf linishing belt setup. Start to finish 60 seconds tops, and those fuckers are sharrrrp.
    Takes about an extra 90 seconds to do an axe as you gotta change the belt. And then that mother is same same.

    Another vote for the edge pro system, a workmate is making me a knife currently ( mrs is getting me it for my birthday), he uses a linisher and gets them razor sharp. Will post up pics of new knife when I get it
