I also sharpen other things to but it depends on what it is as to how much it costs. I use a cardboard wheel for hatchets, machetes, big knives etc etc. there is another guy in town who does sharpening "professionally" and not one person goes to him when they know ill do it for cheaper and do a better job to boot.

It polishes the edge really well so there are absolutely no ridges or other imperfections on the bevel. I rub the rouge on the leather, take ten swipes on each side and I'm done.
