FIL is older and he doesn't have the patience nor is he a blade enthusiaist so a Spyderco Sharpmaker, Lansky or the like is out. Electric would be nice. Any ideas?

Thanks everybody! :-)

Costco had one (electric) under $50 the other day, don't remember the brand but if you are a member it would fit your need (easy returns if he hates it). Otherwise one of the $10 carbide pistol grip sharpeners (Smith's etc.) would be ok.

Sharpmaker for sure. Any idiot can razor up a decent knife with one. I have been using one since 1994. The only thing that I have to work at is my Emerson CQC7. The chisel grind is a pain in the balls to sharpen.

You threw out the lower cost good ones so do it the old, hard way.

Both simple and effective.

I don't want to hijack this thread, but is that a decent wet stone? I've been looking for a set of wet stones for sharpening a variety of knives. I'd like to get a coarse/medium grit and a fine grit.

I have THIS one and love it. It is extremely easy to fuck up a knife though, you don't leave the blade still at all.

Palmetto State Armory has this on sale for $4.00;



When it arrives throw the knife away (it might be OK for scraping dog shit off an old pair of boots ) and you have a good deal on a GREAT little sharpener.

In all seriousness the knife is crap BUT that is a nice little sharpener.

Not to hijack but does anyone have any thoughts on which on of these is better? Was looking at picking one up since I don't have any sharpeners.

I have the Sharpmaker and love it. You can even sharpen a serrated blade if you do your part....I have no knowledge of the others.

With practice "razor sharp" is routine in a few stokes. It lives in our kitchen I spend more time on the sammich makers knives then mine.
