I really REALLY like sharp SHARP knives. I have some good knives but I stink at sharpening them. Sending them out for sharpening is too expensive for a retiree's budget; so I'm looking to improve my sharpening skills. I use a steel to keep edges crisp, but I need something to bring a badly dulled knife back to a good hone. My knives are not super expensive, but made of good steel. They do not get over used as one would expect in a commercial kitchen; therefore I don't need to invest is expensive sharpening gear.
I found this . . .
It seems to control angles which is my biggest problem trying to hand-sharpen. Does anyone use this jig? Does it work for you? . . . worth the money?
If you don't use this one but use another one, care to share what it is and what you like or dislike about it?
