I use a Spyderco Sharpmaker and a strop. I often use just the strop to touch up the edge on my knives. I've also used various stones and a couple of "systems" that set the edge angle precisely. I like the Sharpmaker and strop best.

Give it to my hunting partner, I never have been able to get one sharp and Jim can give it 3 or 4 strokes on a stone and you can shave with it ,

Used a variety of methods.......benchstone, Lansky, Spyderco Sharpmaker which has been the best so far but tedious.

My Christmas present to myself this year is going to be the upgraded Work Sharp Angle-Adjust.

Close. I recently bought an Outdoor Edge replaceable blade knife. I've used it on a deer and an elk so far and it's worked very well.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

Years ago I bought a really good Forschner boning knife. I tried every trick in the book to put a good edge on it and failed. Then I bought a Worksharp. That works. It puts a great edge on it.

I purchased a “Worksharp” years ago when they used infomercials. Paid $80, I think. Since I worked in the restaurant business at the time I started sharpening the knives at work, then I started sharpening the knives at some other restaurants in town. Only working a couple of days a month sharpening knives, I ended up making a few thousand dollars. It was an easy way to make a few extra $$.
Let me just say, “The Worksharp will get the edge sharp as you want in a very short amount of time”.

This dude's a riot. Probably puts a doily over his coffee cup in the morning before he takes a sip out of it.

Lol.

I have the same and a Havalon Piranta. I like them, but a guy not being careful can turn a simple nick on the hand with a regular hunting knife into a wound that smiles at you.

Don't laugh. I used a ceramic heat deflector plate off of my Kamado Joe. A few passes on each side had my knife shaving sharp.

When he gets there, please post a video shaving with it, including his neck.

Man, ain't that the truth. You can be blood brothers with your deer.

1x42 belt sander. As long as there is no damage and only needs touched up, a 40 micron belt followed by a dressed leather belt. Around one minute per knife.

Arkansas hard and soft stones works for me. Occasionally a medium diamond grit for more aggressive reshaping.

Diamond plates,

Stropping stages to .125 Micron.


Don't ask me about my military service or heroic acts...most of it is untrue.
