Nudie,

The Shinkhansen unit is hard to beat. It consists of two ceramic wheels in a bath of water with a knife guide on top. The process is to stroke the knife through each wheel about 8 times.

They're designed for Global Knives but I use ours on all brands of knife with success.

Cheers,

Jim.

I've got one of those sharpeners. Have only used on the Global knives I have ... maybe I'll try some other knives with it. Seems to work ok but I'm no expert.

They are available here;

Global Sharpener

They are available with 2 or 3 wheels. The 3 wheel sharpener is more suitable for a variety of knives.

I've got the Nirey KE-198. It'd electric and easy to use and effective. Can't guarantee it's the "best" but it's good enough to sharpen our kitchen and hunting knives. You could also check out the AHN site - sure to be lots of advice on there.

I was surprised to find that a ceramic nozzle from a TIG welding torch is an amazing knife sharpener, a decent knife comes up like a razor

I use a rotary sanding disc (100-200 grit) on my cordless drill for the initial sharpening. Remember to keep the knife blade cool, dip in water frequently.

Then use fine (200-600 grit) wet and dry sandpaper (wet).

These are low cost items, kept in my camp toolbox.

I finish my knives with a diamond 'steel', about $30-$50 at knife shops.

Sharpening means two things and one device won't do them both: reshaping or repairing the bevels and honing the edge.
