    What do you guys use to sharpen your knives, and what do you like/hate about them? Need to get a setup (my roommate that did my knife sharpening moved out), and was wondering what you guys used.

    I use a Lansky system. Works great, but it takes patience.

    Someday, I need to pick up a decent set of stones and actually learn how to use them.

    I have a Lansky set I got at Bass Pros. It's very similar to mattsb2000's set with the clamp, guide rods, and stones. I'll mirror what he said, that it can get tedious, but it does a hell of a nice job too.

    Google "Lansky"

    I like my Spyderco sharp maker. With the included items you can do serrations and it gets knives sharp enough to shave paper.
