    I'll check. Don't know what I have, but logic tells me wider is better for this job.

    Bought a Henkel's set from Amazon a couple years back.  They've done really well at holding and edge.  A couple of them have lost their edge due to a lot a use.  With Thanksgiving upon us I just purchased a Wusthof Precision Edge 2-Stage  knife sharpener off of ebay for $20.00.  Has two slots one course one fine.  A few pulls through the course followed up with a few through the fine slot and they all shave hair off.  Simple and works great.  
    I was looking at Henkel sharpeners.  There are so many listed, which one did you get?
    I got the Wusthof Precision Edge 2-Stage  knife sharpener off of ebay for $20.00.   Looks exactly like one of the Henkel's knife sharpeners
    Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    Been thinking a while about getting one of the "Ken Onion" sharpeners but it seems there are 2 or 3 different styles one uses a 1" x 18" belts another 3/4" x 12" belts, which one are you guys using ??

    Huh?  As far as I know, there is only one Onion, but the company makes other sharpeners that are not Onions.

    I bought a ken onion about a year ago.  I still have not used it yet.  I never seem to have time to learn it when I need to touch up a knife.  I have no doubt it will save me some time when I finally get around to it.  If you keep your knives touched up, it doesn’t take much to put an edge on.  I currently keep a 2 sided King water stone under the sink.  I sharpen a couple times a year, and keep them honed with a steel in between.

    If and when should I replace my fine belt? Do you folks go by feel of the belt, how it sharpens, or number of blades it has been used on?

    I just go by feel. IMO, the more worn out a "fine" belt is, the better.

    When the belts get worn out, I usually charge them with black, white, green or red buffing/polishing compound, the same stuff we use on leather strops for deburring or a razor edge, its made for muslin wheels but works ok on belts.

    Thanks!  I did not know that.  All I know is that my Onion works like magic after all of the stones and sharpeners I've used in the past either take a lot of work to get there or never quite get there.
