Sharpening your knives

What do YOU use for the sharpening and maintenance of your knives? I just use a generic kitchen knife sharpener.

whetstone.. generally the oddball lil preset knife sharpeners where you just stick the knife into mess up alot of knives.. they change teh angle of the grind on the blade to whatever it's set to.. although if you find out where you can adjust the angle (which I have seen somewhere) then I suppose it would work find.. But generally a whetstone is the fall back you wanna stick with.. practice.. alot..

a whetstone here, but I need a lot of practise before attacking my good knives with it so as not to completely destroy what sharpness dows remain in the blade...

400 grit sandpaper rested on a table or 2x4, works great with some WD40.

Get a Gatco system you'll never regret it.

Sharpens all types even serrated and has a guide right inside of the box to show you which angles work the best for the intended use of the blade. Also with the clamp and angle guide you never have to worry about using the wrong angle its the same every time.

I use a wetstone; I have a nice tipple stone with oil bath. coarse, medium and fine. With a little practice you can put a razors edge on easy.

I like a high quality chef's steel. I don't own anything serrated and I can put a shaving edge on my Kershaw in under a minute.

Lansky diamond stone set. Only thing tough enough to sharpen my EDC damascus knife. Gives a razor sharp edge every time.

This can sharpen a whole range of items, axes, chisels, knives, works very well and about $20 bu Chestnut tools.
