    I use a Fällkniven DC4 and a Flexx Strop, and old belt sanding belts.

    I rarely use the DC4 or belts, strop is the breadwinner in this family. I rarely need to actually sharpen a blade.. IMO sharpening is done way too often unnecessarily.

    Edge Pro is great. Expensive, but great. If you can afford it it's a great option.

    Right now I just mail the knives back to the various companies and they sharpen them for free. I'd like to get a solid sharpening system to be able to take care of it myself.

    I am gonna sell the various parts I took off when I lifted my truck so might have some cash to use. I've been on the fence with Edge Pro because of the cost. Life is expensive.

    I've heard the lansky and spyderco sharpeners are good too and they're pretty cheap

    God damn it.... I threw one of these sets away when clearing out an apartment I help manage at the end of july.

    I have been using a gerber pocket sharpener and a kitchen sharpener, then wet stone. For big work I have metal smithing files. But I think I might get that lansky 5 stone set.

    A fine file if they are really dull. Then this. super cheap but very effective.



    I've had this one for about 15 years.

    I keep an accusharp in my hunt pack. It's the best tool for knife sharpening in the dark with bloody hands.

    I even use it on my Scandi knife grinds. It's works pretty well.
