Norton 3 Stone IM200 System
I remember as a kid growing up in Germany that the knife sharpener would come by the house every so often on his bicycle. There was a stone wheel attached to the back of the bike that he would crank by hand to sharpen the knives. Well no one comes around where I live now so I have to do it myself. The Norton Three Stone system makes it pretty easy. You can go with an electric model that isn’t that much more expensive and is mostly fool proof, but there is something atheistically pleasing about dragging the knife over the stone by hand. I haven’t ruined a knife yet.

This is especially true of your knives. Here're the basics of knifedom. Knives are for cutting. To cut they need to be sharp. When you use a knife it becomes dull. You need to sharpen your knives. Here's what happens. Through usage, a knife's edge actually wears away. To bring back the sharpness to the knife you must remove a small amount of material from the sides of the knife. That's what a sharpener does. There are many types of sharpeners, from sharpening stones (I've used them) to a manual sharpener like the Wusthof 2-Stage Sharpener (I've used them) to the electric sharpeners. I'm currently using the Chef's Choice 300W Diamond Hone Knife Sharpener pictured at the top. From the web site: The Chef's Choice sharpens in the two different stages: the sharpening stage and the second honing stage, which polishes the blade to a razor edge. Those two stages create different bevels, putting a "shoulder" on an edge instead of sharpening with a single bevel. The shoulder strengthens the edge so it lasts longer. And I think it does. The first time you use the sharpener you create those two bevels. After that, putting a new edge on takes just a minute or so. To make sure the angle is correct it has magnetic guides that hold the blade at the proper angle.
