I can sharpen tools with it too and things like lawnmower blades. Works really well and I found it easier to use than the drag through kind. I also have diamond stones, but getting the angle right was a challenge.

I have this as well. It’s fantastic.

The best economical knife is Victorinox. Its only $50, but the thing stays sharp for a good time, and it can easily be sharpened.

I’m a professional chef and at work I use  Victorinox knives exclusively. In terms of bang for you buck they can’t be beat. I still have a Henkel that I bought 25 years ago. It was amazing for about 5 years and still ok for another 5. It was  about 200 bucks back then. My Victorinox chefs knife is great for 2 years and still ok for 2 more. Then I give them to my junior chefs.  They cost me about 50 bucks. They have a hard day at work and in a domestic setting will still be good after 15 years no problem.

At home we have some Wusthoffs. They are lovely

It’s the knife I use most of the time. I’ve had it for about 11 years now.

So do I need some innate talent to use the Ken Onion sharpener? I know you guys are the type who can tie multiple knots, build your own boats and frame a house. I’m an idiot and not skilled in the use of hand tools. But if it’s easy enough and will keep my knives/scissors and Keizer blades sharp...I’m in.

I know it's culinary blasphemy but for tomatoes, other vegetables with a skin and certain fruits I use a paring knife with a serrated edge.  Works like a charm.

I do have a Wusthof paring knife but I only use that when Gordon Ramsey comes over for dinner...

I found it very easy, much easier than using a stone. You basically lean it against a guard and draw it back towards you. They have different belts which are easy to change. If you can suture stitches, you can do this!

Changing the belts is the most complicated part of the process, if that could even be considered complicated.

I just got the Ken Onion thing here:

Cheaper than the site linked above. For $120 you can get the simple thing, this one comes with replacement strips.

My preference is the Edge Pro Apex

Extremely versatile, and no risk of damage to quality knives by grinding and potentially over heating blades.  The same result as if an expert used whetstones.

A bit more money, but I’ve had my Wusthof knives for over 30 years and they’re still going strong.

For any one wanting a cheaper sharpening option, the Accusharp is decent and requires no skill level to use.

Sorry I don’t have the video but a thorough test of sharpeners was done on YouTube. The Accusharp failed overall. It did in fact sharpen the blade a bit but in the long term it slowly ruined the blade. It was deemed ‘ok’ if you’re just using throw away cheap knives.

Fair enough. I  just use a sharpening steel. But the Accusharp do an ok job for light use.

I hone my knives with every use. To sharpen them I use a whetstone. I’ve been sharpening with a whetstone for over 20 years now and I prefer it over an actual sharpener because it removes less steel from my knives.

Whoduh thought Bill uses a whetstone ....lol. I’m sure I’d do a number on my knife if I tried that.

I used to sharpen knives with a whetstone too. That’s how my dad did it. Hunting and fishing knives.

Again...not surprising. You guys are just good at that kind of stuff. If I can’t bend it, break it, or f*** it I’m outta luck.

    • Day 172: 6/12/24 Chipping with a variety of clubs trying to simulate Pinehurst. Had a lot of fun.
    • I can use those, but let's get really picky about the right camera angles. And about taking up a good amount of the frame.
    • I am not sure how much rain they got recently, but it is going to be in the low to mid 90's at Pinehurst, and SUNNY!. That course is going to be firm fast and probably very difficult. It will probably get more difficult into the weekend. I suspect a lot of close tee shots end up in the waste land area, and the greens are going to be brutal. This will not be a soft course. 
    • Finally back to my Evolvr lessons.  I was not happy with some of what I saw in the below.  I am happy that I seem to have stopped holding my right arm against my body but I think I am hitting the ball well before my hip turn.  At first I thought maybe that was because I was tired and the foot was hurting but a couple days latter I had a friend shoot a video of me at my league on the very 1st shot, well rested and not hurting, and I did the same thing.  So I am not thinking it is a more common issue for me.  It will be interesting to hear the official comments. (FYI, I know the dates show different but that was typo, both videos are form June 8th)
