    This is what I use and you can shave with it when your done.

    You shave with a knife sharpening kit? How does that work? :confused:
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Slowly and painfully.

    Anybody tried the Japanese water stones? I knew an old man on Okinawa that could just about put a shaving edge on a bananna with one of those things!

    I use them for my woodworking chisels and plane blades. Norton sells a kit that has a 220,1000,4000 and 8000 grit stone. All my tools have a razor sharp, mirrored edge but I doubt I have the skill to do it on a knife with a beveled edge. It's actually the "slurry" that's created that does all the work.

    I have the Lansky 3-stone kit and may just simply need to pick up the other two stones and go finer than the standard "fine" stone can offer.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    I've never had great luck getting Buck knives back close to factory sharp. I send my Bucks back every or every other year for a factory edge.

    On all other cutlery, I have 3 different stones and oil that I use. I also have a diamond rod in the kitchen that works between serious sharpening.

    Have Linefinder sharpen it.

    Got this buddy wit a gift for crafrmanship and a hunger for doing things right, after a lot of research he got the "Wicked Edge" kit, you can shave with his butter knives...

    I had a METAL sharpening stone that for some time with some effort would make knives ridiculously sharp, like put razor blades to shame sharp, same deal with a ceramic rod.

    If this post is non welcomed, I can always give you a recipe for making "tostones".
