Default Sharpening knives - a solution


This device from a Canadian company costs about 6. It may be available at
Craft Supplies in Derbyshire.

I use a small diamond hone once in a while - I've never been able to get
along with steels.

I use a diamond Global steel and every 12 months or so use a whetstone.

Don't think the water stone is included. It is fairly easy to get the hang
of sharpening with a water stone by hand though. Just takes a little
practice.

A fixed honing angle (which this device
handily provides) is only desired for a straight
blade. The real difficulty with most kitchen
knives come near the tip, which is curved.
As you move around the curve, the bevel angle
needs to stay constant, which means the knife
has to move to a different angle.

I hate to knock a Lee Valley product; I'm a woodworker
and like the company A LOT, but this gadget
ain't that useful.
