sharpening stones

I get off track and sometimes don't respond to the orginal posters question. Don't have any experience with the sharpening systems mentioned. I'm old school. Have a DMT diamond stone medium grit and fine grit along with a self made strop. If not clear- a strop is a piece of leather glued to a board that has been inpregnated with neats foot oil and rubbed with a fine grade abrasive (like rouge). Basically the same as what barbers used to use to put a fine edge on a razor. These tools give me all the working edge I need.

For the Shun Post. Do not use a belt sharpenered with 300 grit on your knife. I do have a sharpening stone for mine and it is 4000 grit. 300 grit will really mess up your knife.

Thanks guys. I did not think to call Shun; I'll do that.

Oh, and FYI, I do keep it in a wood block. It does get used on plastic cutting boards, though. Purchased from a mall kitchen store, so I don't think they would really want to see it back.

Having used just about every method, I'm sticking with my WorkSharp. The edge seems to last a lot longer with the shape of the bevel it put on the blade. I cleaned 32 deer in 3 days, every 3 deer I would run it for a few seconds on the fine band and it stayed shaving sharp. Steel & stone would have taken much more time.
