I will second the GATCO. The GATCO is similar to the Lansky. The GATCO has bigger stones than the Lansky. It has 6 angles versus the Lansky's 4. The GATCO's rods simply pull out from the stone holder rather than requiring a setscrew like the Lansky. I have the GATCO professional with their ultra fine, ultimate finishing, and coarse diamond hones added. The kit came with serrated, ultra coarse, coarse, medium, and fine hones. If you buy it at Cabela's you get the stand for free. I also strop with bench strops and white and red polishing compound. I give a dull blade the full treatment with the kit. Blades that just need a touchup get the ultra fine and ultimate finishing hones plus the strops.
