    I found a pretty easy to do this. I was given one of those “work sharp” electric knife sharpeners. I heard about them for years but never wanted to long up the cash for one when I do just fine on a bench stone. It’s not really any faster, some but not much. It corrects a bad edge angle and they even come with diffrent grits of little belts so you can get it really sharp. It’s really handy in the kitchen as I don’t have to sharpen my best half’s knives anymore. She has scalpel sharp knives in about three passes. They come in diffrent models, but this plane Jane model is just fine.

    I use an electric knife sharpener and have for years as, despite my father and others trying to teach me on numerous occasions, all I accomplished by using a honing stone was making the knife more dull........ :lol:

    It took me forever to figure it out. This thing will correct a bad sharpening job in about 3 passes, and have a knife screaming sharp in about 20 minutes. Downside is that it will remove material fast. Not an activity to do when watching TV.
