    Mouse pad + high grit sand paper. Drag the blade across 10 or so times, then the other side 10 or so times.

    High Speed and Cheap Knife sharpener. It's what I use on my Wusthofs and my Wotan.

    Nah, I actually know how to sharpen a knife. Maybe I'll even make a video on it.

    Yeah, the spyderco sharpmaker set is great. Easy to use and very effective. Mine is getting a little old and doesn't work as well as it used to. I can't seem to get the steel particles out of the ceramic material any more. Time for new rods, I guess. It probably didn't help that every time I got it out while I was in the sandbox all my friends would ask me to sharpen their knives, too. I didn't mind and it was a good way to de-stress. You'll find that people who outrank you seldom bother you when there's two rows of knives next to you, the sharp and the dull and you've been sharpening for quite a while.

    I had someone look at one of my knives a few months back that I had sharpened on the sharpmaker tell me that it was dull. This was after I shaved a patch of hair off my arm with it. Before I had a chance to say anything he'd drawn it across his forearm, handed it back to me and said, "See?" I went "huh", obviously confused and put it away. That was about the time their arm started gushing.

    Edit: BTW, I wish I had video of that.

    Hey Tonu, you should try it out and let us know if it works.
    My first attempt to sharpen my Tom Brown Tracker and Smersh 4 failed miserably.
    But I'm not giving up and decided to repeat my attempts until victory.

    When I got my tracker it said that I can send it back to them to get sharpened. I use it now for a not of hacking and shopping so I'm not too worried over a razor edge.

    My cut my seatbelt before I burn to death tanto can can be used to shave however.

    Heres a question, my new seal pub has a serrated edge on it. How does one sharpen those?

    SFGoon, I just couldnt bring myself to put the Burka on the old lady, their creepy.

    Ya it might take some getting used to. I happen to like sharping my knives, I find it soothing.

    The key to sharpening with a stone is to keep a consistent angle throughout the length of the blade.

    Degree of angle depends on your intended use.

    Same goes for blade material/hardness.

    I'm with Olorin in that I get satisfaction from maintaining a sharp edge. This takes little time if you sharpen often.

    You can sharpen knives to razor edge and even sharpen razor blades (in case you go all emo)
    I have one of these, a great sharpening kit
