    Suggestions on knife sharpeners.

    So I have a bit of a problem. I can take a dull knife and try to put an edge back on it, but I usually make it worse. Does anyone have any suggestions on knife sharpeners. Thanks in advance. Happy holidays everyone.

    I use a Lansky sharpener, and it works as advertised for a reasonable price. An extra coarse stone helps for really bad blades. Wear leather gloves.

    Lansky is great. I tried a WorkSharp for a while. Very easy to get a shaving edge on a blade with that, but it is very easy to round off the point of the knife with it. I sold it and went back to the Lansky.

    I have a Lansky as well. Really like it. Umpquahunter I know purchased a work sharp and loves it! I guess it won popular mechanics product of the year last year.

    WorkSharp is great as long as you are very careful with the tips of the blades. The sanding belts flex as the blade passes through, and they can kinda curve around the tip. You have to back off the pressure at the right time to keep that from happening so that the points will remain intact.

    I have the Gatco knife sharpening system, which I believe is the same as Lansky. I love it to death, have fixed many a bad blade.

    My worksharp is awesome for knives, bad for broadheads. I like the worksharp because I apparently have no idea how to properly sharpen a knife on a stone, but I can get my knives wicked sharp on the worksharp.

    I like the worksharp for knives. I love being able to get a knife shaving sharp in a couple of minutes. It's hard to get broad heads with it. I have a kme I use for those.

    I can't sharpen a knife on a stone to save my life, but I can keep my buck knife shaving sharp with an accusharp. It does not weigh much and I can always put an edge back on my knife easily. Another option could be a Havalon, no need to sharpen just change out the blade.

    I've got a warthog. Go to v-sharp.com & check them out. My kids can take the dulliest knife and make them razor sharp on this dude. It is very easy to operate, anyone can use it! My oldest child is 11!
