    Plain old whetstone?

    Ceramic rods?

    Lansky?

    Motorized?

    What is your preferred way to sharpen your blades?

    If it’s a basic chisel or hallow grind cup point, something that is easy to work with I just use stone or wood with 2k then work up to 4000 grit sand paper. I feel the edge and run the blade backwards. Simple and works well.

    Oil stones & a steel. I used a vibrator sander when I was a youngster with wet sand paper. The biggest thing is a constant angle. When I was an apprentice meat cutter I was taught the thickness of a nickel on oil stones.

    Haven't found anything better than a couple of Arkansas stones and honing oil with a final touch of the ceramic sticks.

    I’ve got whet stones, ceramic crock sticks, chef steel, carbide pull through and other miscellaneous sharpeners.


    My favorite, is my Work Sharp. It’s easy to use, and does a great job. I can change belts in a few seconds.

    I've got many of the above, but also use the worksharp the most because it's quick and easy. I use my knife often enough that it needs regular sharpening.

    Anymore, I use my Worksharp as well. If I want something stupid sharp, I simply finish with ceramic sticks
