    I'm not much of a knife sharpener. I have an electric chef choice. Lately, I have been using knives with disposable blades like the Havalon.

      I have a Lansky 5 stone set (lansky.com/index.php/products/professional-system/) and a Worksharp Guided Field Sharpener (worksharptools.com/manual-sharpeners/guided-field-sharpener-221/flypage.pbv.tabs.tpl.html).

      I've used a lot of different sharpeners, and these two have worked the best.

        I'd like to try the Worksharp, but I've had very good experience with Crock Sticks. In fact, I think Dave Petzal did a video on the virtues of this type of sharpener some time ago. They're incredibly simple, which is the biggest selling point, and they don't have the same high cost as the mechanical sharpeners.

          I put sharpening my knives by stone and honing oil on my bucket list. The other methods mentioned here, I believe are good also. I just simply wanted to accomplish that task by hand and stone, and I finally achieved it. It required a good stone and a whole bunch of patience, not to mention finding that correct angle and being able to get it right each time. I have to work a little harder wit stainless steel, but after a little sweat, I've managed it also. I think finding what method works best for you and sticking with it, makes the next time sharpening is needed a bit easier. Just stay positive and it will come to you. Once I got a feel for the angle sharpening became a whole lot easier.
