Wow, first time I've seen that method! Interesting.Don't waste money on sharpeners. The best I have come across from a friends dad of mine that let me in on the tip is the rod inside of street lamp light bulbs. It's gets knives to the point you can shave your arm hairs. Trust me it work!

Just break the bulb and use that inside rod. Once you use that you will never use anything else.
THIS ^^^^^^I second wet stones. Make sure you get a Japanese wet stone and not a Western wet stone cause the Japanese one uses water and the Western one uses oil. An the Japanese ones are softer then the Western ones. The only way IMO to get knifes razor sharp: http://www.woodcraft.com/Search2/Se...mproductgroup=Sharpening&BrandForDisplay=King
I personally use the combination stones with two size of grit. You want to start around 200/250 threw 800 grit for repairing small nicks in the blade or to re bevel it. The 1000 to 1200 grit is for the first stages of the sharping process. Then finish it off with 4000 to 8000 grit to give it that razor sharp (you can shave with it) edge.
Hmm....$70.....or half of that and a few hours of practice with a cheap knife?I recommend this for Novice.. It sharpens your knife in seconds in perfect angle, all the time! It cost $70 (Amazon) but it's worth every single penny!
It is all about the steel and properties used for steel.Mike P said:I bring the suck as sharpening knives. It's not that I can't get them sharp, it's having an edge that lasts.
