Yep, I am a Lansky freak, even have a leather strop. The time it takes, I ran out of, so following the original story in the link above I made my Wife get me one for Christmas.

Honest, it is creepy how good a job it does. I just bought back time. Can't do that very often.

After reading the other post about the work sharp, I ordered one and have sharpened every knife in the house, my game scissors, and several knifes for people at work. Amazing how simple and good of a job it does. I used to keep 2 spare knifes in the truck during deer season so I would always have a sharp one. No need for that now.
I'm right 97 percent of the time, the other 4 percent doesn't matter.

I don't have any problems sharpening knives with stones, diamond plates and/or ceramic sticks. Did y'all sleep through Boy Scouts or something?
It doesn't have to be fun to be fun.

Wild & crazy, can't be stopped. Only the strong will survive.

Keep your knife sharp and your skillet greasy.

My $15 Kershaw will butcher a whole deer and I just have to hone it a little to get it back to shaving the hair off my arm... I did run it on the diamond sharpening stone a little after my last deer, honed it and it shaves again. The blade has a small chip which isn't surprising for a $15 knife but it holds an edge pretty darn well for the money. I think most knives are sharpened at 22.5 degrees on both sides so keep that in mind when you hone or sharpen it... I am far from expert and could use a little learning myself, but have gotten a little better at it during this past deer season.

What do they charge per knife?

If I had saved all the money I spent on hunting, I'd spend it on hunting.
