    I have collected many a knife over the years.
    However I cant sharpen a knife on a stone worth a darn.
    I have a Lansky System now.
    Looking for something in that price but easy.
    Thanks in advance of any input.

    I used a smith's system for about 3 years. The kit with the coarse, fine and serration sharpener. It worked great for me and I only paid about $30 for it. However I recently tightened my stone on to the rod too far and the plastic cracked rendering it useless. They're a great system until you thread the rod down tight.

    How much have you tried with the Lansky? They are decent.

    You have to check out Fred Rowe,s ERU sharpening system,it sounds exactly like
    what you need. I cant say enough about it. I've had mine a couple months and love.
    CPM,stainless ,carbon all no problem. It can be dialed in perfectly with no risk of
    scratching the sides.Very little learning curve and produces a very sharp edge. Good luck.
