Hello Mark,

Thanks for the quick reply....

I have another question that I was hoping you could help me with. I am new to sharpening and I was looking for a good "all-in-one" solution. The Takeda Hand Held Whetstone looks like it might fir the bill at reasonable price and was wondering if you thought it a good choice or provide other options.

Also is the Idahone ceramic rod for sharpening or honing?

Thanks,
Adonija

The ceramic rods like the Idahone do "sharpen" a knife in so much as since they're ceramic, they are able to abrade the steel and remove steel to refine the edge....but they're not really meant to sharpen a knife. It would take exceedingly forever to sharpen a knife with one. Now, if you keep the knife sharp, a ceramic hone can extend the time between true sharpenings if you use it regularly.

Or, you can just use a strop (stropping on a stone works well too).

A double sided stone like Mark showed is a good "all in one"....as is something like the EdgePro:
