I did the flaxseed technique to do the initial seasoning, and it seemed to work well. Don't deglaze with white wine. Stripped it all off in 2 seconds. I have to start all over.

I don't think I saw it mentioned anywhere in here, does anyone have any recommendations for a sharpening stone? I only have German blades if that makes a difference. Bonus points if I can buy it with Amazon Prime.

I use the spyderco sharpmaker, it's easy to use and delivers a good edge.

i've got one but have not had great success with it. maybe it's just me.

I think I'd rather use a stone than one of those. I've heard they're terrible for your blades.

Terrible how? It's just a ceramic stone that's been set at an angle.

i think you're thinking of the chef's choice electric sharpeners, which are great if used right, but can eat up a lot of steel. my problem with the spyderco was it just never seemed to sharpen my knives that well. probably just me. i'm now tring to learn a regular stone and getting better results.
post #114 of 290
I think the Spyderco/Fiskars type sharpeners are hard to maintain a proper angle and pressure on so the blade ends up sharpening differently in different places and warping over time. Whether that's actually true or not, I'd still rather learn to use a stone. Is there any specific stone you'd recommend or does it not really matter?
post #115 of 290
Doesn't matter. Get a few different finenesses and work from coarse to fine. It isn't hard to learn.

I use a naniwa 1000/3000, but I always forget which is which and have trouble remembering from touch. They feel pretty similar.
post #117 of 290
really? mine's 1000/3000 too i think and it's pretty easy to tell which one is rougher

I got a stone for my birthday without asking. When I bother to use it I can see my face in my knives. Could probably pluck my ear hair with it.

one time i got carried away with sharpening my knives i shaved my entire right arm. i was so amused by how sharp it was i couldnt stop

and that japanese knife my friend got me a few months ago is still so sharp i can drop cherry tomatoes on it and they split in half
