    I expect beavis's post may inspire some to shop. Haha

    Here are my axes. Gransfor Bruks small forest axe. Hard to find sometimes. It is the most popular sized. And my tiny Wetterlings wildlife axe. Both are fucking sharp. I've test shaved my legs with them. Non scientific id say the Wetterlings is sharper. Easier to sharpen a smaller head I think. I got the hatchet for hunting. I want to butcher with a axe. Someday!

    You can see the fit finish diffs. Pure aesthetics. Both kick ass. I love them both. Even the bigger one is packable. I'll take one of them Saturday on my hog bow hunt.

    What is everyone using to keep their stuff sharp? I have various stones and steels, but I never seem to do a good job.

    I'm looking for something that is pretty much idiot proof.

    Lansky stones. Has a guide so you can choose the angle of the grind you want.

    The worksharp is amazing...

    I have a lanksy system, the spyderco sharpmaker, a tri-stone bench sharpener, smith pocket sharpeners, several diamond stones, and various ceramic hones...

    And a worksharp.

    It is TOO easy. I have all this sharpening equipment that I've accumulated over time... And the worksharp, out of the box, can do an hours worth of sharpening in 2 minutes.

    It comes with 80 grit (axes/shovel/severe edge modification) 220 grit (rough/working edge sharp), and 6000 grit (cleaning edge) belts.

    The a few strokes with the 30-degree guide, using the 220, followed by a few more on the 6000, followed by a few passes on a leather strop, will put a shaving edge on most knives.

    The worksharp is made by the same people who make the drill doctor, and they just came out with the "ken onion" edition worksharp, which has a different guide than the 2 regular ones, for getting a steeper angle on thicker knives.

    They also have more belts available online (600, 800, 1000, 2000, ect.) so that a polished edge can actually be achieved. (The 220 grit to 6000 grit jump is too much to get a really good polish.

    Didn't realize this about the GB axes. Saw them before Christmas and wanted to buy a small forest axe after the holidays. Now that I'm ready, they don't exist. Looks like maybe March before US places have them back in stock. Guess I'll wait.

    Can confirm. Best Sharpening system I have used as of late. Belts usually last me about 20 or so sharpenings, and A set of replacement belts cost $11 on amazon.com. You can also purchase different grit belts so that you can really polish that edge up.

    What I like most about it is that it gives a convexed edge on your blades so the edges last longer and cut easier than a normal V grind with a stone system.

    The Downside is that I can only get as narrow as 20 degrees per side with the provided angle guide, but after a while you can free hand it to a narrower angle.
