I use a cheap $10 sharpener from the local sporting goods store and a steady hand. Sharpen the blade drawing it in one direction only (don't go back and forth). Strop the blade on stiff leather or cardboard afterward.I have a couple of knives, switchblades and pocket knives, how can I sharpen them to a razor's edge?
Getting rid of that wire edge should be the last step in your sharpening routine, get that burr off and polish the edge nicely. Then you'll have a proper "razor edge".Many knives will have a "razor edge" that is a wire edge- sharper than a mother-in-law's tongue- but it will go away at the first cut.
