You know I love knives, so when I saw a big display of them at the National Restaurant Association show, I had to find out more. The Friedrich Dick company of Germany had a range of knife sharpening options depending on the kind of knife and quality of the steel. Harder steel requires a much more serious sharpening! You can get a great one from them that will do a good job on your kitchen knives for about $80 at Amazon.

    So did the Freidrich Dick sharpening machine get the job done, and how many more passes did it take?

    John,
    What kind of knife do you have in that clip and where can I get one?

      Hey Alec,

      The knife I’m generally carrying is the Camillus Titanium Beast Tanto. Its definitely available on Amazon for about $70, and sometimes you can find it in at WalMart. Its a big heavy knife, but it definitely gets the job done.

      Beware that its made of VERY hard steel. Which means it will stay very sharp for a long time. But its also quite difficult to sharpen by hand. You almost need to have a machine to do the sharpening when it does get dull.
