My sharpening paraphernalia

Most of it is for my shop tools but it comes in hands with my kitchen knives. I can pretty much use that 3 stone set on the left for anything in my knife drawer. If an edge, get's too out of whack I'll straighten it out on the sharpening station. Then finish it off with the stones.

If I can't sharpen using that, I go online and order some more cheap knives.


Nice setup, Jeeks.

What brand is that one Pacanis? Every one I try it sounds like it's grinding half my knife away.

Looks like nice cabinet grade birch? for the base on your belt drive grinding rig.
Interesting variety of extensions for your table saw.
Maybe you could tell us more about the bench stones?
Are the King stones available in 12" length?
If so, would purchase of same require a home equity loan?
The pink / reddish-brown stone looks like it might be kinda soft?

What brand?
You'll have to ask Ron Popeil. His brand I guess. I got it with one of his do-all knife sets where you order one knife that doesn't work, and get 80 more free that collectively work slightly better I stuck it in my drawer along with the marinader and a bunch of other stuff I'll never use. I can't seem to find my other cheapo sharpener that actually does work...

I do plan on picking up an "entery level" chef's knife soon though, but my Lansky sharpener will have to do.

Birch ply with a walnut border. That's a homemade strop. the flat wheel on the left for chisels and the V-strop for v-shaped carving tools and chisels. No, my chefs knife does not get the strop treatment. I'm not sure about the lengths available. The oak box is home made. The brownish King stones are 800, 1000 & 1200. The single stone is 6000. You can find them for about $25 ea. Oh, they aren't soft.

A 1000 grit is more than enough for kitchen knives. Factory edges are probobly done on a 7-800 grit stone.

The left one is for cross cuts/ripping using a combination blade, then there's a router table, the left saw has a 3/4" stacked dado installed. Less tool changes and provides a nice assembly table. All 3 machines use the Biesemeyer fence. Took a couple hours just to level and line everything up. Here's a couple more pics. There's an adjacent room where I keep my drill press and lumber, I might move my lathe in there too. You guys have shops?
