I have yet to get a sharpening system of some sort. I've been waffling over whether or not to invest in a Lansky system. I've heard good things about them. There are others out there, but they're way beyond my current budget. I just got my 110 back from a cutlery place. They did a great job sharpening it, shaving sharp. I really don't want to have to hire out sharpening any more, though. Got to buy something. Don't know whether to just start with a stone, or what. I'm kind of paranoid about ruining the blade, and I'm leary of manually sharpening something, having to maintain that perfect angle (which is why I was so interested in something like the Lansky), for just the right micro bevel. By the way, very nice-loooking hunting knife. Could I trouble you for a picture of the entire knife? Also, do you use it for specialty applications, or whatever comes to mind (multi-purpose)? What kind of steel is used? Thanks!
