Ken onion version…
I highly recommend!
Nice! I have a non KO version. Cheaper. Works well too.
Amazing what a mirror finish edge looks like and how long it stays sharp.
I have the non KO version to, I use it for kitchen knives and yard tools. I use a Lansky System that I use for my EDC, hunting and fishing knives.
This is the one I use, I even use it to sharpen my shaving razor …
I prefer honing over sharpening. If you hone it often, you rarely need to sharpen, which takes metal off the blade.
My sharpener came with a 6000 grit belt.
I usually sharpen a blade no more than once or twice a year. In between sharpenings I use a steel as required.
I cut cardboard quite a bit, using my old diamond sharpener I was having to sharpen every day, now once every three days.
Wow! I get why you went the way you did
If you do a lot of cardboard cutting (why is cardboard so tough on knives?) I would look into a utility knife. When the blade gets dull swap it out for another one. They even have some really cool EDC or folding utility knives if that’s your thing.
Steel is a sharpener, too, unless it has no ridges.
add the “Blade Grinding Attachment for the K.O.” and it’s even nicer. Great tools.
although, Shun VG-MAX is one hard/“tough?” steel to reshape the first time around.
It’s my edc right beside my shield, I’d rather pull it first is my best excuse
I’ve never had good luck sharping a knife, hell a butter knife will be shaper than any knifes, that I try to sharpen.
