....what do you use?

The stone was my Grandpas. I use it wet. The steel was my Dad's when he was DVM USDA APHIS MPIP

So that's a very decent butcher's kit but I wouldn't make it my regular choice for honing my Busse or Swamp Rat Battle Rat or any of my finer hunting knives or any of my finer automatics.

.... and you're missing some good crock sticks with that kit to really touch-up your kitchen knives in a hurry. Don't get me wrong, I use steel and stones and crock sticks in the kitchen every day practically .... but my choppers and EDC knives get better care.

Just mho

ETA: FWIW I have a leather bag full of old stones passed-down to me from my Grandfathers and Uncles and Dad .... there is definitely some sentimental value to them and some of them are so well used, like yours, that I am prone to using them just to reconnect with some of them that are now gone. But still, I'm more anal about my knife sharpening than probably any of them were with the exception of my maternal grandfather whom was always sharpening one of his knives. I do the same thing.

I confess to being bad at sharpening with anything other than a Spyderco sharpmaker. Could never find the knack for it. The Spyderco does the job quickly and gives me a good edge. The only thing is if the blade was sharpened at a much different angle than 40deg you might have to re angle the edge which takes a little time. After that it’s gtg.

Another kindred spirit! I could do okay with the old crock stick, but oil stones were hit and miss. the Spyderco has made a big difference for me.
