I use a lansky. It does a great job and keeps my blades razor sharp.

I use a lansky and then use my 6 inch bench top buffer. I use polishing compound sticks on one wheel and then just the bare buffer wheel on the second. After properly buffing the blade I can shave a piece of 10 lb. mono four or five times. If you cut yourelf with that blade, you need super glue to close it. Also soon the blade looks like a mirror.

I once met a man on the way to a deer stand. He was dragging a nice doe to his vehicle. I asked why he hadn't field dressed it. Turns out he forgot his knife. I loaned him mine, telling him it was "sharp". Apparently he didn't beleive me and proceeded to slice open the belly. The entire 4" blade went in the whole way and stommach content exploded from the deer. His face was in the line of fire. I offered to sell him my soda from my pack for 20dollars. (kidding) I gave him a soda I had for the stand. His last comment before he headed to the car was "That was the sharpest knife I've ever used".

Trust me, when you polish and buff the edge, it is sharp. (Warning, the buffer will grab the knife and stick it in the ceiling or what ever is in its way.):eek:

There you go! I agree with the art of sharpening a knife. What will all these fancey electric sharpeners be worth when the power goes down?

That's why all my blades are convex ground. No electricity required. The best knife grind IMO.

The Scandi grind is another good gind too. Easy to resharpen with a stone. You can just lay it down on the stone, pivot the knife on to the grind, and it becomes obvious that you are holding it at the correct sharpening angle.

I use a lansky with various honing stones as well. I am trying to get better though at hand sharpening my knives like my buddy does but I am no where near as good as he is at this point. It is also a fun hobby.
