I've got a fair collection of knifes nothing over the top mora, kershaw, gerber, ka-bar fighting knifes and cold steel. Nothing 2 crazy all good utity knifes. Kitchen knifes are kiwi and barco mora. I use a basic guided sharpner system think poor man's lansky 3 stone system. Thinking of getting a lansky 5 deluxe set with a extra 2000 grit. Unless there is a better simpler system. I don't have the patience or skill to use wet stones.
