Default Idiot-proof field kukri sharpener?

When I finally to decide on which kukri to buy I want to have a really good field sharpener. I'm freaking horrible with a stone & a chakmak won't give me a shaving sharp edge that I want. Any suggestions?

Scratch, i second the Lansky system. i suck getting a good edge with a stone. but when i used the lansky, i could do much much better. i need to get another, mine must have gotten lost in one of my moves, cause i can't seem to find it.

Thanks for the responses. I'll add the Lansky to my shopping list. Is there also a reputable one that'll fit in a pocket?
