Default Sharpening System?

I have always used a stone and oil, but recently observed that I can't keep a proper angle to save my life. Can anyone suggest a good knife sharpening system for around $100-$125? The ability to touch up serrated blades would be a big plus. Thanks.

PM J.D. on this. He has a system, it looks like a freakin mirror on the edge when he's done.

Jeep - I have two set ups, one is for sale as I have found the one that I will not part with.

The first is a Lansky (http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f41/jds-shot-show-clearance-36344/ ) and it's a great system for most blade applications.

The second, the one I used for the knife I sent Benning, is from Benji Dale in Oregon and is called the Edge Pro Apex Sharpening System. While this system won't do concave blades well, like a Karambit, it will sharpen the hell out of just about any other blade on the planet.

Ask Benning to show you some picks of the Mil-Tac I sharpened for him.
