dmt also has a basic ojt lesson on sharpening classes at their site www.dmtsharp.com.

they also have sharpening advice for tools such as saws, routers gardening tools etc if your interested. i would think you have a built in gene fer knife sharpening. the italians and spanish produced some of the finest swords in the world at one time. their rapiers were second to none.

The best thing I have found is an old telephone protection fuse. These were made of ceramic and were about 3/8th inch in diameter and about 6 inches long. I gathered some of the blown ones up before I retired from the phone company. They put on a shaving edge with just a little work.

I agree with the other guys, Lansky's are great.
they have several sets out there, anywhere from 3-5 stones, in either real stone or diamond stones.

There is another thing my dad uses, but it takes practice.
it's a set of "wheels" for use on an electric bench grinder motor.
they are of two different types of cloth treated with jewelers rouge.
works fantastic but it take practice to do it right and sadly i just have not been able to get the hang of using them very well.
