I know this has been discussed a lot but i'm wondering as a beginner in knives and sharpening i know nothing about sharpening knives except you sharpen it on the rim flat ways, i would really like to know what value methods i can use to sharpen my knife set, there is one i've been eyeing and it's this one: AnySharp Global World's Best Knife Sharpener (Classic)
I've looked at the reviews and people say it's really good to use and i have a flat surface to use it on, and since i have to get into sharpening i would like to know if this is also the best long term thing to use at a value price? i've heard a lot about granite stones too and how well they sharpen knives, there is also this compact little sharpener that people think is great and i love compact items so id definitely love something compact: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Taylors-Eye-Witness-1260-Sharpener/dp/B00016B9GC/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1395006204&sr=8-5&keywords=knife+sharpener What do you think of those two? and do you have any to recommend?. Also do you know any handy videos that teaches how to sharpen in different ways?.
