Part of being retired, is finding things to do. !

I decided to re-sharpen my hunting knives, so it was
"OUT WITH THE LANSKY SHarpening kit


What a task. !
Bloody hell the steel in both knives was hard as hell.



The SOG took 7 1/2 hrs, to get right, over about 3 days.
The Gut Hook, ( Ebay special) took 4 1/2 hrs to hone up



Now every time I look at them, "I have to count my fingers".

LOVE it !

I have thought about getting this system. They have been around for years and I have always been to cheap to get it. Maybe I will start pricing the set and get it in a few months...not that I have been able to find something that makes having a sharp knife necessary.

I sharpen my knives out of habit. When I was a kid, we used to sharpen our knives in math class! Lol

Bucky, looks like I have the same kit as you. I normally wear out first before I get the edge I want. Sounds like you are a man of patience and perseverance.

I felt like giving up a few times, I can assure you that, but in the correct light I could see the edge "coming up".

They are freekin sharp.

The guy I Fox shoot with, Jeff, goes a couple of steps further.
He uses a magnifying glass, to make sure he has every bit of the "edge" de-bured, and then polishes the "edge" with a leather block, and cutting compound. (car polish type)

Remember the leather straps used in the good old "cut throat" razor's
He uses that theory !

That SOG has been around.

My "young fellar" had it when he was in the army.
It went to East Timor with him, when the Australian Government sent the Boys (Army) in to stop the Indonesians slaughtering the Locals there.

He gave it to me after he got out of the Army in 2002.

I used to get it sharpened by a Butcher, and a Slaughterman, as I was hopeless at it.
That was before I got the Lansky kit
