You gotta watch this one guys [www.youtube.com] Chelsea Miller, famous for her $800 horse file kitchen knives, shows off the 'best' sharpeners. Why spend hours with multiple stones when a couple of passes thru an electric sharpener does it all.

Scott,
I doesn't take that much to sharpen freehand. Once you understand the basics, there is nothing to it but to do it. You can get a nice pair of stones for what those machines cost, and get a way better edge, plus not grind away your knife.

I just got a kick out of the video. Chelsea Miller has become a 'celebrity' knife maker and as such a sharpening expert. No mention of stones made at all.

To be fair Scott I think that the whole point of the video was to exclusively look at electric sharpeners, specifically for people who for one reason or another do not want to use stones. And we can talk until the cows come home about how actually easy and fast sharpening with a stone is, BMW makes faster factory bikes than Harley Davidson, that's not going to sway someone who wants a Harley.
