I agree with the point of your post,everyone that owns or needs a knife should learn the technique of sharpening an edge. I can't see a remotely serious hunter,fishermen,outdoorsmen without this skill.

I also have a Lansky sharpening system as well as a host of other stones and sticks for sharpening an edge,as well as serrated blades.

I remember my cousins and I every weekend hunting fishing from 6-8 years old,in between the hunting and fishing we would sharpen our knives to see who could get the sharpest edge,we would get those Uncle Henrys and Old Timers shaving arm hair.

I love my Lanskys, they make up for my lack of skill. I can get a good edge on the straight part of the blade by hand but have a heck of time where the blade curves to the point. The lansky solves that for me. Almost never need the course stone unless I have been doing something stupid. I have 6 or 8 pocket knives in rotation, when they start to get dull they go into the drawer, when I grab the last one I sharpen the rest of them.

I recommend one of these pocket Lansky's for your field bag. They're and excellent edge refresher.

Lansky Pocket Crock Stick (around $6)

It worked just fine on a Cold Steel Mini-Tanto. Although you many have to use different angles to sharpen the cutting edge as opposed to the front edge, which is made more for penetration. I would usually not put the second bevel on the front cutting edge.
