Smith Diamond stone course then fine. Gets everything wicked sharp. Even axes.

But then of course I might be a 13 year old girl who reads alot of gun magazines, so feel free to disregard anything I post.

This is hands down the best knife sharpening system on the market right now. It's exactly like the edgepro/wicked edge, but the refinement and quality of the system is unsurpassed.

Unlike the other systems, all guess work is removed with this one.

Personally I use the ken onion work sharp. It's just too easy and faster then anything I've ever used before. I suppose any belt system will work, but the worksharp is small and easy for anyone to use, including my 70 year old mother.

After spending a LOT of money on all kinds of equipment, and a LOT of time, I discovered it’s not my forte.

I found a retired guy the local Williams Sonoma subs to. He’s fantastic, quick, prompt, friendly, personable and only charges $3.00 per knife.

I gladly pay him and spend my time doing something more productive, profitable and enjoyable.

This then finish up with a ceramic rod. I have a machine(Edge Pro) but I just prefer to sharpen by hand.

Never shoot a large caliber man with a small caliber bullet . . .

I use both Dmt and some other ceramic stones that work with the angle guide from dmt.. I start with the course diamond and work to the 1000 grit ceramic. It gets my bench made very sharp
