What is the best and easiest knife sharpener that I can buy? I need one that is idiot proof. I can't use a stone

I bought a Lansky some 28 years ago, and it has been the best sharpener I've used. A few of the stones broke last year, and I bought a new one. For the money, and being idiot proof, it is what I would recommend. Spend some quality time with the lansky and your favorite hunting knife, and you will be able to shave with it afterwards.

The Lansky deluxe is what I bought both times.

I bought a Tormek T7 about a year ago and love it! Theyíre expensive but I would buy it again. Iíve never had great results with anything else, and I own about 7-8 other sharpeners.

For a complete idiot proof sharpening system I highly recommend the SpyderCo Tri-Angle Sharpmaker. If you can make a cutting motion with a knife then you can sharpen one on this system. I have been using it for about 8 years and can make my knives shaving sharp in a matter of minutes.

If you have a Scandi or similar bevel, the bevel is high enough to feel the angle during sharpening - no jigs or devices needed other than a moderately skilled hand and a brain. Once the knife leaves the stone, hone it on a leather stop loaded with cutting compound. What you'll end up with is a very low angle and very sharp working bevel that is sharper than all other higher angle beveled knives.

good luck

That's the Lansky sharpening system that I use. It works great for me, good quality and it comes boxed, which I like.
Pretty good system for the money.

Go buy a diamond "stone" and a mora knife. The blades are not too thick, sharpen easy, and they are cheap, then practice. You will end up with less money tied up total, a good knife, a new skill, and an understanding of blade material and geometry.

Buy the services of a knife sharpener at a gun show. Every few years I take 3-4 and in about fifteen minutes and $20.00 I have all my knives polished and sharp as a surgeon's scalpel. I've had a few of the systems mentioned above, and they all work. It's the whole time value of money decision for me. I will be in the neighborhood of House of Blades Saturday. I'm gonna let them have a go at my skinning and quartering knives. They use a diamond wheel and finish on a compressed paper polishing wheel. I'll post a review.

I agree with the Lansky. For a quick edge in the field I carry a 6 in foldable sharp-stick. Been through plenty. Still works.
