I recently bought a Kershaw folding knife (about a week ago) and it already needs to be sharpened. So, what do you reccomend for getteing that razor sharp edge back? Where can I get it from, and how much does it cost?

Spyderco Sharpmaker.

Been using the same one since the late 80s. Replaced the stones once or twice, though.

I don't know where in Mich they sell them. Here in TX you can get them at Academy. I get the replacement stones at Nagel's gun shop - go figure.

I recommend you buy the 3 stone version - really don't need much more.

I have no idea about the cost now - mine was less than $20.

I have the Lansky one that costs $6. Just pull the blade through the "V". Sharp in 4 seconds flat. Almost too convenient, makes you wonder if you did anything at all since it is too easy.

+1 Spyderco makes a great sharpener, better than Lansky's IMO.

I use a Tormek sharpening system. It's a slow-revolution wet stone grinding wheel. It's very expensive but worth it for me. I use it to sharpen all my knives, chisels, handplanes, planer/jointer blades and the guy's knives at the fire station. I've also made a few bucks on the side with it.

I'd recommend an edge-pro, but at ~$140ish not worth it for what ya got. One of the low end lansky systems , as mentioned, would do you just fine at a lot less $$.
