Get a blademedic from amazon. Really simple, easy to use, lasts a while, etc.

Took my mother's 40y/o hunting knife from not sharp enough to cut anything to passing the paper test in all of like 45 seconds.

Theyre like $10 and amazing

I worked as a cook for 10 years and it gave me a very strong appreciation for blade sharpening. Truth is, blades get dull real fast. And you're extremely correct that a dull blade is extremely hazardous. It seems counter-intuitive, but you have to use so much more force with a dull blade, and that makes accidents way more likely.

It also made me notice how most TV and movies never show warriors sharpening their swords. In real life, when swordsmen were between battles they had to just be constantly sitting around sharpening their swords, it's gonna be duller than a butterknife after one battle. But Game of Thrones actually handles this well, you see characters sharpening their weapons all the time on that show.

Also, on your point about sharpening a saw, the best way to do this is to use a tool made specifically for that. What you want is a tool called a tapered/serrated sharpener. There's one included in this product called the BladeMedic:

Definitely a good idea to have one of those things in your survival gear bag.

Gets every knife sharp enough to work with them in minutes.
And I guarantee you, the blade will not be worse than before.

If you want cheap, and beginner level, try the Lansky blademedic

I use it in the kitchen when I’m in too much of a rush to use my whetstone. It’s one of those credit card types as you call it. I also have one for my non cooking knives. It’s made specially for quick sharpening, but it’s a bandaid. Whetstones are much better on the steel than this.

It can sharpen and hone, and even get the serrations. Whetstones are definitely the way to go, but have a learning curve to get angles, pressure, and positioning correct, and takes some patience.

Blade Sharpener

Saved you another

u/900_year_old_vampire · 3 pointsr/knives

what you need to sharpen a curved blade like a karambit is a rod. get something like this . it has a rod, and also other surfaces that you can use in the future, should you find yourself buying an actual pocket knife with a straighter blade

u/ramses0 · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Restaurant supply store. Full tang, riveted handle (no nooks, crannies, bends, or joints for food/bacteria to get caught). like this

BladeMedic (will let you sharpen serrations!), or I like this smaller one for semi-daily use.

Buy a 10" Chef's knife, a smaller paring knife (~4" maybe?), then personally I bought a 6" serrated ceramic knife which doubles up as bread-knife and lettuce knife. Like this one but ignore all the scammy reviews. Ended up giving away my 6" non-serrated ceramic knife b/c my steel knives were always sharper. I hardly ever use this one but if you find it for a good price (maybe ~$20?) then I'd maybe say go for it. I'd also be tempted by the regular $10 steel one as well, though.

You're in for ~$20 on the chef's knife, $10 on the paring knife, $20 total on the sharpener(s) and optionally another $10-20 on the serrated ones. Most people never use any of the other knives in a block, I keep mine nice and separated, laying flat in a drawer.

Oooh! Last bit... Kitchen Shears, these I actually do specifically recommend, they're great quality and look good too. Instead of slicing a pizza with a knife, you can cut it with scissors. Same with fajita meat. A lot of times I'll use tongs + scissors and am able to process meat right in the same pan I'm cooking it.

So... $75 and you'll have a very nice setup. Maybe I'd add a Santoku or small-medium Cleaver, and then try to figure out table-knives or steak-knives, but that'd follow a similar process for me. I'd be much more willing to buy a fancy set of 4-8 steak knives though than I would a traditional / full wood block setup.


u/jrodrox · 2 pointsr/knives

Mod told me to post here, post is pasted below:

Currently have several knives, two EDC knives, and one full tang knife. Trolling through many forums, reddits, and tutorials, I was wondering what are the best ways to clean, lubricate, and sharpen knives without ruining them.
Currently have this product for sharpening but I have heard that stones can produce a better edge. Also have not educated on what each part is most useful for.
Thanks in advance!

u/astrangeone88 · 2 pointsr/vaporents

The older version of this (without the serrated area). I used what I had on hand (am a fan of pocketknives and this is my "I am too lazy to break out the actual whetstone/diamond grinding pad".)

I used the rod shaped thing.

u/Atook · 2 pointsr/bowhunting

I'd start w/ a rangefinder if you can afford it.

Don't worry about special knives. Any small knife will do the trick to dress a deer or elk in the field. You really don't need more than a 2-inch blade. I keep a sharpener like this in my pack, but don't usually need it till half way through the skinning process, and by that time I'm back at camp/the house.

If you can't drag the deer out, you may need to quarter it, in that case a little saw might be helpful till you get the hang of disarticulating the shoulder and hip joints. Game bags might come in handy if you need to do that. A frame pack is useful for packing out quarters.

Maybe a couple yards of surveyor's tape for marking blood trail, be sure to go back and clean up your marking tape if you use it, littering isn't cool.

20 feet of para cord, it's just good to have.

Good luck out there.

u/achensherd · 2 pointsr/whittling

Recurves are a pain to sharpen. For simple touch-ups, I just use the bottom of a coffee mug. If the knife is significantly dulled, then I use a sharpening rod like the one on this.

u/jafnvaegi · 2 pointsr/knives

A BladeMedic is an inexpensive and quite easy approach to get you started. :)

u/So1911 · 2 pointsr/ArtisanVideos

Just my opinion, but planned or not planned, anyone doing any sort of actual backcountry camping would never have the capacity to carry even a single sharpening stone as a requirement. I've done lots of camping, from campground car camping to multiple weeks, and I can't imagine any situation where having a full water stone set up would be a benefit. You have to soak the stones which is a waste of clean water, and the weight is significant.

Everybody is different and prepares their own way, so I'm not knocking someone who would bring a couple of stones and sharpen their knives as a "fun" way to pass some time while camping in a campground... But to say that you need stones for a backcountry trip in the wilderness is tough for me to wrap my mind around.

I use one of these for camping/vacations:

u/sworddude · 1 pointr/knifeclub

Check this one out. It's small, cheap, and you can use it on serrated blades as well.

u/literal-hitler · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

> v sharpeners remove too much metal and will destroy your blades.


u/davidrools · 1 pointr/knives

I'd say a Japanese waterstone would be the way to go. They're not that hard to use. This Kai 240/1000 would even match most of his knives! A 1000/6000 would also be a good option paired with a fine diamond stone.

I understand that none of these would work particularly well for that half serrated blade. But a little Lansky blade medic could touch it up nicely.

u/stonewall1979 · 1 pointr/preppers

I'd prefer to have it and not need it then need it and not have it. If the shtf and you need to use your knife for multiple jobs outside it's design, being able to touch it up afterward would be a good thing. Otherwise you risk hurting yourself trying to force a dulled blade. While camping my blades do a lot more than just cut rope or slice vegetables, if you had to use it as a pry bar or cut a can open its going to tear up an edge.

Amazon has small, lightweight sharpeners for less than $20 and won't take up much space. For example: $11, 4oz, by Lansky.

I agree that a full sharpening set isn't needed for a 72 hr bag. Since his plan is to bug out to the family farm they should have a complete sharpening system there.

u/Drevlin76 · 1 pointr/knives

If I was going to buy a good knife and sharpener these 2 things are what I'd get

Kershaw Damascus Steel Leek Assisted Opening Stainless Handles

Lansky PS-MED01 BladeMedic

u/Qkix · 1 pointr/whittling

I just started too, and I'm using this knife :

Imperial Schrade IMP16S Stockman Folding Pocket Knife

I love this knife, it's great, and inexpensive.

For easy cheap sharpening, you can start with something like this :

Lansky PS-MED01 BladeMedic

You'll want to invest in better tools if you decide to stick with it, but this is what I'm starting with even though I have other knives and sharpening stones and etc.

u/goofyasswigger · 1 pointr/EDC

I bought the same sharpener a while back on amazon and it was not that good. I would definitely go with a this instead as it is close to the same price, relatively similar but a little better quality.

u/Pavlovs_Hot_Dogs · 0 pointsr/EDC

That seems like exactly what I'm looking for. Any thoughts on this verion?
