There are some good ideas here but I just use an old oil stone.
:'( some of the links aren't working correctly, & are rerouting me to the main forum page instead...
Yes, it is another bug, but you should be able to, until we get the links all fixed, search for the title, and it will pull the thread up.
I use the bottom of a china bowl.
I use my Spyderco Sharpmaker.Works great for me.
Lansky system on my edc blades and kitchen utility knives. For my big kitchen knives I take them to a local sharpener.
I have a Sharpmaker on order.
:iagree: easy to use, get the diamond rods for "really" dull blades
I have an absurdly large collection of sharpening stones including a number of Japanese water stones and even two stones so fine they seem like slightly textured glass...something like 10,000 grit or better. I believe they are used sharpen razors. Scored the best ones at an estate sale.
I use an oilstone like the one shown here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharpening_stone
There are some good videos on youtube about how to sharpen with an oilstone, this one is especially good: http://www.youtube.com/user/georgebrowncollege#p/u/35/Z5X0PBY0XgI
An edge pro setup if I need to bring one back from the dead.
For general upkeep, a ceramic rod and/or diamond pasted and plain leather strop paddles.
Lansky five stone system. It works.
I use grindstones, in different levels of coarseness to put the initial edge/grind on, then a metal rod sharpener to maintain the edge, and a fine diamond impregnated stone to smooth the edge out.
if i had the money, i will pick up a spyderco sharpmaker
right now i use a smith's pocket pal, cermaic/carbide along with a diamond tip for serrated edges, works well for my use

Dmt D8xx and D8f to set a bevel, and then the JRE EMS to sharpen.
