I currently do not sharpen my knives myself but I would like to however I have a few issues with the task some OCD and others more functional. #1 I have hand tremors they are realatively mild but had them as along as I can remember and I can't hold things terribly steady or keep an angle. This means free hand is out as an option for me. #2 I want to be able to sharpen a variety of grinds on as little different equipment as possible. I know I have some knives with Convex grinds and V or Flat grinds I need to sharpen. Currently I don't have any I know are a Hollow grind but I want to cover that option too if possible. #3 I also have minimal knowledge on sharpening but this might also be something to focus on with a specific type of sharpening system in mind. I believe regardless of that I do need and want to know how best to check and edge both for what type of grind it has if I wish to match it as well how to easily and properly check it for sharpeness and other issues. #1 & #2 are more for suggesting a specific sharpening solution and #3 for suggesting videos, dvds, articles, or books that can help me learn more about the process. Main systems I have looked at are the WE, EdgePro, KME, and the Worksharp but those all seem to only do one type of grind.
