Knife sharpeners comes in a bunch of variaties and designs. They range from under 10 dollars to 100´s of dollars, and its a jungle to find out which one is the best. I will try to put as many different sharpening systems to the test as possible. I am not a millionaire, but I will do my best. The knives I will be sharpening will all be different kinds of folders and fixed knives. I will try to sharpen as many different knives and steels as i can get my hands on.

After the test
I will visualy inspect the knife, shave my arm if I have any hairs left, and share my thoughts and experiences.
Thoughts or stars?
I am not much into stars, I prefer thoughts. Then you guys can make your own opinions. I will give an honest review about the knife sharpeners being tested. I will talk about pros, cons and prices. I will tell you if my arm gets sore, and if I belive my mom can use it.
