    Great comparison. I would recommend including some ranking of effort required to achieve the edge in future comparisons as you can ignore something that has a 1 min process vs a 1 hr process.

    Test sharpening stones, I grew up with dad's grey and black stone, he'd put 3in1 oil. But he could shave with it. But I have only been using spiderco 3 set stones, ruby's in ceramic. And a leather block with polish. I use this for all my hand tools chisles, gouges, scorps. And many other hand forged wood tools.

    в этом видео не раскрыта разница между заточкой и правкой. Хотя таблица в начале видео явно гворит о том, что кромка бывает не только dull но и bent.затачивать конечно же лучше инструментом имеющим приспособления для контроля геометрии подводов. Ручная заточка на бруске дает слабый контроль за геометрией даже в опытных руках. Не говоря уже о неумелом или торопливом человеке. Ясное дело, что приспособления заводского производства за сотни баксов дадут лучше результаты по сравнению с ручной заточкой тем более по сравнению с сомнительными устройствами которые только портят ножи. Но есть и компромисс. Любой струбциной зажимаем нож на краю стола, так, чтобы режущая кромка свисала над краем на измеренное расстояние. Например 10 мм. Берем брусок абразивный (лучше три разной грубости), привязываем/ приклеиваем( или просто держим рукой) длинную деревянную линейку или любой длинный ровный предмет достаточной жесткости. Прикладываем брусок к подводу режущей кромки ножа и подбираем подпорку для дальней части линейки так, чтобы был нужный угол. Удерживая с помощью этого приспособления нужный угол, производим заточку ножа с двух сторон. Для повторения угла в будущем, записываем на бумажке расстояние от кромки ножа до подпорки и высоту подпорки, и толщину бруска. Конечно же, струбцина, брусок, линейка и подпорка тоже стоят денег. Но скорее всего это то что у вас уже есть дома и покупать ничего не нужно.И да. Пользуйтесь для правки ножа специальным, хорошим мусатом. Твердым и ГЛАДКИМ. И вам не придется точить ваши ножи чаще чем раз в год даже при интенсивном использовании. И при этом они будут достаточно остры чтобы профессионально резать на кухне не только пальцы.

    Would have loved to see what the rest of the Wicked Edge Stones / Leatherstrips would have scored. I got a more affordable (still like 400 $ -.-) Wicked Edge sharpener and i have the impression that the leatherstrips really take the sharpness to another lvl.

    I used to use the Lansky system on my knives till I realized it was mechanically incompatible with sharpening narrow blades as on small, traditional pocket knives. I also did not like the mess and cleanup required due to the recommended oil on their stones. After buying several Spyderco knives I decided to try their system which you demonstrated. It is very easy to set up, no-mess (no oil required), and convenient to use. But I felt it took a lot of time to get very sharp and polished, burr-free edges. I even bought their ultra fine ceramic stone, and then the diamond ones, and finally a leather strop. I still feel the edge is not durable enough which you also found in your testing.I have considered buying the base model Work Sharp motorized sharpener. I looked at it in a store and saw that it only sharpens angle. Since I like to put different angles on different blades depending on whether sharpness or durability is more important, that made it a non-starter.Now, I suppose it is back to Lansky and using (*sigh*) oil to sharpen my knives.What a great, interesting and useful test comparison. I admire they systematic way you level the playing field and compare to real-world situations. Thank you very much!

    Imitation whetstone. Whetstone from Japan is worth its weight in gold. Wars were won and lost owing to the quality of whetstone that could be procured.

    I used to work in a meat shoppe and all these gadgets and gizmos are just overkill. The only thing you need is a sharpening rod (or whetstone if you prefer) for keeping knives sharp. Great video seeing the end results!

    So the wet stone was best for edge retention. Only lossing 30 while the 900$ one lost 40. Interesting.

    I have a Lansky and they work well, the only downside is the uneven wear from extended use. Doesn't happen fast, but there will be spots impossible to use on them. It takes forever on hard knives, but will put a mirror edge on a knife! I also have a Ken Onion Worksharp and it works really fast.

    There are too many factors to judge when testing a knifes edge and its use but this was a very very good test setup. I work in a test lab for EMC, Lights, and chemicals. Very Good Job.
