No, but I've often wondered the same thing and I'd sure like to find out as well.

Spyderco Triangle Sharpener will do it all. Serrated, straight, fishhooks, you name it. I've bought a bunch of sharpener with limited success. I've tried ceramic handheld stuff, carbon steel cutters, you name it. I FINALLY found something that even a dummy can use - the Spyderco Triangle Sharpener. It can be use to sharpen virtually anything from a fish hook to a scapel.

When you need to get it sharp, the 204 is all you need. Spyderco's Tri-Angle Sharpmaker includes two sets of high Alumina Ceramic stones: A pair of medium grit (dark) stones for aggressive sharpening, and a pair of fine stones (white) for professional grade finishing. There is also a set of brass safety rods to protect the user's hand during sharpening. For sharpening plain edges, the flat sides of the stones are ideal. For serrated edges use the corners. The stones fit into keyed holes and slots molded into the polymer base and have a 40 degree and 30 degree sharpening angle for knives and a 12 1/2 degree scissor setting. A groove running the length of the stone is for sharpening pointed objects like darts, awls and fishhooks. All components pack into the base and the lid snaps shut making the 204 self contained and small enough to carry in your shirt pocket. No lubrication is required during use for dry, mess-free sharpening. Includes instruction video and book.

Buy a Chef's Choice Edge Select 120 electric sharpener. It can do serrated and straight edges. It's the best knife sharpening tool I have found by far. Save the little stones and whatnot for field use.

thanks guys. i like that spyderco sharpener because it has the files rather than the triangular stones that really dont fit the grooves.

I used to be like ya'll & made it hard on myself. Then I discovered that if one simply hit the non-serrated side of the blade with the stone, it will still give a nice edge to the serration. I cannot begin to count the number of hours I wasted before I learned this tidbit of info.
