I use a Lansky system sharpener. They have good stones and it's still doing it by hand, aided by a little contraption that keeps your knife blade at the correct angle. With the system, you move the stone across the blade instead of moving the blade against the stone. Quite simple and efficient.

I'm not sure what kind of knife you have. But I use this on my Wusthof knives.

I love the grinder wheels I got from Grizzly. Rough wheel & bees wax on one side & cardboard & jewelers rouge on the other.

5 minutes to adjust the bevel on a new knife to something I can maintain. Then 30 seconds to touch up as necessary. Usually just hit the rouge side a couple passes.

My knives are very popular at the deer butchering table every fall.

Smith's Pocket Pal knife sharpener is very good. As good as you're going to do without a whetstone setup.

Quick tip. If you're looking for a quick way to sharpen your knife use the bottom of a porcelain coffee mug. Works perfectly.

I have that...but you need something better once a year. That's just good for a touch-up. It's no longer doing it on mine large chef knife which is my workhorse. Joannes has a knife sharpening deal once a year. Haven't used it yet but plan too.

The bottom of coffee mugs have a rough surface. It works great

I use a spyderco sharpmaker. Easy to understand and use and is multifunctional for things beyond knives.

Can get them on amazon for around 50 bucks.

These are awful for knives. Never use these on a knife you care about (i.e have ever spent more than a few bucks on). If you try to sharpen your own knives, use a whetstone and oil at least.

Best case, find a professional sharpener. Used to be you could take your knives to a butcher shop and they'd do them for free, but I'm not sure anyone does that anymore. They use a sharpening band like a knife forger would.

Be sure to hone your knives regularly too, helps keep the edge straighter and last longer.
