Can anyone give me a recommendation for a sharpening stone type, size, grit etc? I need to teach my kids how to sharpen a knife and I suck at it. It's been so long, I can't find the one I had.

I have 4. Course, medium, diamond fine, and a 'Smith' stone for that razor edge. Dull knifes are dangerous!

You might look at a Lansky Sharpening System ....$40 and under. They contain Coarse, Med., Fine, and Ultra fine stones with guides that make it east to hold and keep an even angle.

I used an Amazon gift card we got for Christmas on a 8" soft Arkansas and a 6" hard Arkansas stones along with some honing oil. I'll give that a go.

I had one similar to the AccuSharp but can't find it in the tool chests.

I've never been very good with stones either,
not even a Lansky set. I've gotten best results with crock sticks.
