    Help me choose a sharpener

    I decided that there’s no point in contemplating the kitchen knives, as any system I would buy would be more expensive than the knives. As I wanted something easy and proven, I bought the sharpmaker. If I need to do any maintenance beyond the regular upkeep, I’ll get myself a diamond stone...

    Help me choose a sharpener

    Well, if I’m tallying replies, I count (roughly) 6 in favour it the sharpmaker, 4 for the WSKO, 1 for the angle sharpener, and a whole bunch for guided systems of all types (and price points). Plus a few for freehand. In two pages. Still not certain.

    Wow. That’s definitely a grail piece. Saw the finissimo in the metal a few times. It’s pretty impressive. That’s a lot of knives...

    Help me choose a sharpener

    I'm about 1/5 of the way through that book, started yesteday after seeing it mentioned across the forum. I'm going to see what I think after I'm done. I have to say, based on the responses I'm seeing, I'm surprised i haven't seen more support for the Work Sharp Guided sharpening system...

    Help me choose a sharpener

    Sadly or thankfully my most expensive knife is about $150 CAD, but I'd still like it to last. Is the work sharp likely to remove so much metal if you use it correctly?

    Help me choose a sharpener

    Thinking of this, but it doesn’t fix my kitchen knife dilemma. They’re 10 years old, dull, chipped, and if I’m already buying a solution for my couple of EDC blades, I feel like I should be thinking of this as well.

    Help me choose a knife

    Heh, yeah. I was like that with watches. I could definitely see getting another knife some day though. I’d love a chaparral or similar with a compression lock and super steel. Maybe slightly thicker stock, Rosewood scales... Anyhow, for anyone interested in doing this all over again, check out...

    Help me choose a knife

    Well, there’s been development. I went to the store near me to try a bunch of these. I learned a bunch about my preferences. 1) I really like the grip on the Spyderco knives, MUCH more than the ones on the mini grip, mini bugout, or even my drifter. 2) I’m sensitive to size. The Para3 and Native...

    Help me choose a knife

    By the way, I'm not a damascus guy, simply because damascus isn't really a type of steel per se, but does anyone know how the damascus functions on the civivi knives, specifically the rustic gent (toughness, edge retention, ease of sharpening, corrision resistance)? is there a good (specific)...

    Help me choose a sharpener

    I'm asking less of a 'which is best' and more of a 'which is best for me' here. I don't collect knives, I have a set few, one pocket knife (currently a CRKT Drifter, although I am about to upgrade to a knife with a much better steel- see my 'help me choose a knife' thread), a small SAK, and a...
