Knife sharpening

How many of you sharpen you own knives? I'm trying to learn and have bought a " Nortons Whetstone Kit" with 4 different grits. I still need some ceramic rods and a leather belt...I saw a guy fillet a red fish with one hand with a Dexter Russel fillet knive and it went through like butter. He said to get whetstones and learn to sharpen..


Thanks in advance Centralites!!

S.S.

This is what I use. Quick, easy, and gets the job done.

I use something very similar. I have taken a knife or two in (it's really pretty cheap), but not often.

ss, this is what I use. I have the 5 stone sharpening system. It takes about 15 minutes per knife but you won't believe the edge you get!

I used to have them professionally sharpened by a guy 30 minutes away, but now you have to drop off and pick up another day.
