knife sharpeners?

smilingal | Aug 9, 2010 12:43 PM

I can't seem to get the knack of using a steel - so I am wondering your thoughts about buying one of those electric knife sharpeners that also just hone the edges. Otherwise I have been using for the past umpteen years an antique Aladin sharpener that I hold down on my counter and run the blade thru (it also could have been attached to the inside of a cabinet). I know that some are for Japanese blades and others have separate edges for making the differentiations. This was supposed to be my last year's holiday gift but I put it off not sure that it was a good thing to do to my knives.
