Been using a EZ Lapp diamond steel for about 40+ years. They usually last about 10-15 years. In my pocket 24/7/365. The leather pouch makes a great strop. :thumb

I even keep the worn ones,the EZ lapp's) make a decent impromptu alignment pin,(as long as you dont pry on it hard) and you can bump a starter solenoid on a tractor/car/truck/or bike if yours happen to go out out in the woods. Just dont use a good one it will pit it.

Try the SR-101 in a swamp rat, it responds well to a flat creek rock as well.

when I got my first GB , I picked up a GB puck as well, and its done well, for sharpening, when that one got worn down, local place had em on backorder, so I picked up tha Lansky, it was close to tha same grit and quality, still using it on axes and hatchets, local feedstore had some Fiskars puck's on a 50% off sale,m figured what tha hell, picked up one, that was a screwup on my part, compared to the other 2, its a really fast deteriorating puck.. I can understand now why they had em on 50% off.

told him to hold me some GB's or lansky's when they got tha truck in with em

And here all these years I've been chewing up my damned blades on the carbide side and never knew those LITTLE CROCK STICKS were there for that reason.

Yeah, be careful on suggesting those, bud. You'll get weirdos chewing on your ass about how those are too complicated for anyone to figure out. It's got two sides after all....that's one side more than the common knife user can figure out, after all.

And except for mine being red, I've passed out dozens of those to folks.

Same here, and I use it to sharpen anything from folders to axes. The single downside is that the replacing diamonds cost more (once you add shipping) than an entire new sharpener if you are not in US.

Just found these, going to pick up a couple. I have some kitchen steels, but I don't have any ceramic ones, I think this will be a nice addition to finish edges quickly. I don't like the small ceramic pull through sharpeners but for the cost, these look like the answer I have been looking for.

Ceramic rods are nice for quick touch ups when the honing steel doesn't cut it anymore. I would take a cheap knife and run it the length of the rod when new to smooth out any tiny imperfections that can ding an edge quite quickly.

This is my favorite field sharpener...

These are nice because the case doubles as a handle, which makes sharpening a knife in the field a whole lot easier.

I have a 4"x36" belt grinder for makin blades. Sharpening is my least favorite thing to do, sooooo, i sharpen all 3296 1/2 knives and load em all in the bed of the truck before i go anywhere. (Yeah i broke one in half). If i get down to the half, i have a lansky in the glove box, one in the wifes car that she dont know about, one in the pack and one in the saddlebags, just in case.
