    Quiet day today, so I sharpened our kitchen knives. I like to use medium and fine Japanese water stones with a Nogura stone and finish it with a few passes on a Schrade Old Timer home steel.



    Kitchens knives made tiny curls shaved off paper. Lousy picture, but you get the idea.


    Touched up my pocket knife too. It didn't shave my arm hair. I just felt my arm hairs pop off, like they were walking the plank.

    No blade too big or too small. Hit them on the stone, then touch up on the strops. Nice, shiny, smooth and razor sharp edges!

    I know this thread is old, however I am curious if any of you have used a sharpener from ? If you have did it work as advertised?

    A hard Arkansas stone and my Gramp's old steel keep'em sharp for me.
