Knife sharpening tips?
I just bought some honing oil and a medium Arkansas stone and wanna touch up my Skeletool's blade

I just want to re-sharpen the straight-edged portion of the blade and the point, don't wanna worry about the serrated portion for now.

I have an APEX sharpener that will put a razor edge on any blade but it requires a bit of work (google APEX out of Mt. Hood, OR) so I've taken to sharpening my EDC blades (work blade) with the back side of a 1x30" sanding belt and a Harborfreight $40.00 sander. I just lay down some red ruge on the belt and then work the blade on it a few passes and it's razor sharp again. It will pop hairs after 4-5 passes on each side. Just let the belt do the work.

It looks like you have some nicks in the blade? If not it's just the picture. If you have nick in the blade you will need to first start with a corse stone to work out the nicks, then work down to a medium then I a fine stone to finish it to a nice razor sharp look . I use water stones and I start with a 1000 grit and work all way to an 8000. Good luck and have fun .

All these are good suggestions. A lansky set will work wonders as well.
