I use my bench grinder to get them sharp and my steel to keep them sharp.

Buy a cheap 4 rod lansky box. It's all you need.

A good pack of sandpaper with grits from 100 through 600 and a good flat surface. Research "scary sharp sharpening system".

Glass from old picture frames works great

Lansky system if you want to learn angles and bevels (compound angles) or a Harbor freight 1" belt sander with belts from 80 grit to ? Micron (whatever you can find) if you want a more professional setup.
In the kitchen I use a chefs choice diamond hone (hybrid) and can do utility or compound angle honed edge depending on what my knife prefers.

My 2x72 grinder. The work sharp is great after you sold a knife, I don't like how it scratches the blade.

I probably have just about every sharpening gizmo around and they all work. But, I'm kinda old school. Out of a dozen or so stones, my go to is an old Arkansas that is now concave on both sides. I use light oil and finish with a steel and then a strop. Just about any piece of leather will work once you figure it out. On junk steel nothing works very well.

Thanks for all the great advice guys. I have a few of the Moore maker diamond rod green handle sharpeners. Not bad. Probably better once I learn angles a little better. Nothing like a new sharp knife,I just want that on all my knives. I have a few I love and just want to do them justice. Plus sharp knives work way better!!!
