    Knife sharpening systems

    Greetings,
    I'd like to hear opinions (of people with knife sharpening experience) on the DMT Aligner diamond sharpening set.
    http://www.dmtsharp.com/press/aligner.htm

    I know I should have asked beforehand and decide on buying later, but I just bought myself this thing yesterday. I had nothing serious at home for knife sharpening and it's about time I learn to do it (yeah, I know it's a shame I've waited for so long).

    So, did I make good business with the Aligner being my first ever sharpening system or not? (Bought it after consulting with the shopkeeper in a store where they know me after buying several knives there for myself and friends...)

    If not, what would you recommend?

    You can sharpen knives to razor edge and even sharpen razor blades (in case you go all emo)

    I would get an old fashioned stone. Granted, it doesn't work as well, takes a while to learn, and can be messy if it's a wet stone. However, if you wife is the timid sort, you could win any argument by just taking out your knife and sharpening it.

    Do I need to mention that I was kidding?

    The sharpener you got is excellent.

    I lucked out on the timid wife.

    Anytime I hit her she hits back and she can run faster angry than I can scared.

    I use Japanese waterstones for sharpening. Nothing beats hand sharpening if you know how to do it.

    Get 1200 grit, 1000 grit and 800 grit.

    My friend turned me on them a few years back and I can even get those cheap ass $5 kitchen knives to cut as well as those really expensive $300-400 knives that my dad has. Granted they don't keep their edge as long.

    Learn how to sharpen correctly and you'll be fine. It's also very therapeutic.

    I have always just used a traditional Arkansas stone and honing oil.

    Hey Tonu, you should try it out and let us know if it works.
