I'll sub to this! I have a couple J.A. Henckels knives that are due for a sharpening. I also need to invest in a nice straightener. The blade on my 8" chef's knife is horrendous after 2 years of abuse.

i have the the metal "stone" thingy for straightening the edge. does not sharpen the knife though. might just get the 3 step auto sharpener unless someone posts they are all junk.

I have the chefs choice, I think it's this one.

http://www.amazon.com/Chefs-Choice-P.../dp/B000CSK0DM

Does a pretty good job. The only complaint I have is it misses about the first half inch of blade at the handle.

There was another thread a few months ago on this topic and some other options.


found it

Every knife in my drawer is razor sharp. i have everything: electric, stones, steel rods, ceramic. But the thing I find myself using the most is this:

That's very helpful as I have nothing and don't know where to start!

For a quick touch up, get a pair of the ceramic sticks at a sporting goods store. They dont replace a good whetstone, or a Lansky system, but they'll do if you're in a hurry.

That is an Amazon item. Currently $19.95, although I think I paid a little more than that. Bought several after it worked so well on both SS and CS knives I gave them to adult sons for Xmas.

No oil.

For most folks, a ceramic cross stick sharpener will be more than they need for kitchen knives. Works on serrated edges, also.
