    Samurai Shark

    If you've seen the TV commercial, it's the same dude that does the Oxy Clean. I ordered two Samurai Sharks off the his website, along with two pairs of shears. I got them in end of last week. This thing is legit. It took some fairly dull knives to a razor sharp edge in about 30 seconds. It also has a little slide out edge on the back you can use on serrated blades. I used it to sharpen the edges on my throwing stars, which were as dull as a butter knife when I got them. Now I could whittle with them if I had the ambition.

    www.buytheshark.com ...best sharpener you'll ever use.

    Question. Do you carry throwing stars or use them for sport like darts? Since you carry a gun, when would you use stars over bullets?

    Yeah those things work like a charm. The only reason I use a wet stone over it at all is it seems to take alot more metal off the blade just to sharpen it a bit faster. I guess I am a bit picky with my blades. If I let them go too long before sharpening I will drop my reservations of the shark and give the knife a couple of swipes through it to get a decent starting point again to hit the wet stone.

    I was wondering that myself; how much "damage" are you doing to the blade using one of those fast sharpeners vs. a traditional stone? There's got to be a trade off. I've been intrigued by them for a while, but always fall back to my Lansky sharpening set.

    Well after a couple drags through it and you can see the metal shavings on the table, you get a little worried. But like I said they give you a good starting point for the stone. and starts your angles out perfectly.

    I use them like darts...I'm about to make my own dartboard for them with human silouhette (sp???) targets.

    We've got a boat load of sharpeners in the house, my father seems to buy knife sharpeners where ever he goes. But he's starting to lock some of them away since I brought home the Lansky Crock Sticks. I bought them for my knives, but decided to surprise him and sat down one day and sharpened every knife in the kitchen and some from his tool box with the sticks. He noticed the difference right away the next time he cut a steak and the knife just about fell through the meat with little effort. So I'll stick to my crock sticks. Those things might be faster, but I've never met a sharpener that could beat my sticks.
