Be careful with those Smith sharpeners. I'm just about to reprofile a coworker's Kershaw Needs Work folder because he has been pressing down too hard on the blade when he sharpens his knife and has turned the Wharncliffe edge into a recurve. A light, even touch is the way to go with those things.
For me, I use a belt sander for serious reprofile work, with a Work Sharp to refine the edge and a block strop to finish it up. If i just need to do a touch up on a knife, the block with various grits of sandpaper and the three different colors of buffing compound works great. The Sharpmaker is also easy to use for honing and is a good investment.
Too old to fight, too fat to run...
thanks for the heads up wasatchdan. I'll start with the smith's setup for now as I'm already eyeing another Becker haha! very tempted to pick up a bk-15.
