Once you learn how to dress up and sharpen a knife blade clean skinning beaver is effortless and fast.

Diamond stone then a steel. Wash the diamond stone every so often using dish soap.


If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom - go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!

I use my lansky sharpener with oil. I've always had a hard time getting the bevel right when sharpening and this guided system works for me. After that I touch them up with a steel for a while until I need to reset the bevel

Work nice don't they wink

I used Arkansas oil stones for decades but changed to a more modern system a little over a year ago. Now I use a Sharpal dual grit diamond stone. It is monocrystaline diamond grit electroplated on SS. It can be used dry, with water, or a light oil. I use kerosene. Then strop on a leather strop treated with with .5 micron diamond grit. Many times all I need to do is dress up a blade on the strop.

I have a diamond stone that is made to dress my water stone to keep it perfectly flat.

Around the house I just use the F.Dick Rapid Steel. Only need my stone about twice a year of during deer season.

I use the both the old Work Sharp and the Ken Onion. I like the old one for knives.

Once I get the blade where I want it I use a steel for touch ups.

I can easily butcher a 2-3 of deer just using the steel along the way.
