I mean I get that this is a great knife, I have it and love it, but explicitly trying to stifle discussion and comparison in this thread, as well as calling people 'trolls' isn't a particularly good way to prove a point.

I can confirm this. I have used this knife for years and it's still amazing. This is a great price. Be sure to get a cover and a sharpener as well. Run it over the sharpener every so often to keep the edge nice and sharp.

Hey, I have this knife, bought it about six years ago, and I really like it, but I feel like it doesn't really hold an edge great any more. I own a few different sharpeners(here [amazon.com]is what I usually use), but none of them seem to do a bang up job on this knife any more.

Do you have any advice for a Joe Schmoe consumer like myself for how to keep their knives sharp without spending hours online researching proper honing techniques and buying sets of honing blocks?

That's the exact sharpener I use as a it works great. Make sure the knife is parallel to the sharpener, not angled. You should have cut marks on the handle that protects your fingers. Run the blade over the sharpener until it feels nice and smooth, no resistance. I usually run it through 10 times or so and it always comes out like new.

Honing is quite differ than sharpening. It just re-align the edge to make your knievs work again temporarily but eventually you will need to sharpen your knives to bring back the sharp edge again.

Try to find if theres any knife shops around you so that you can request sharpening service if not buy those convenient sharpening tool. If you are using your knives for home use, it should do the job

Thanks for the feedback, maybe my technique has just been sloppy lately.

My ignorance is showing. If I buy a "knife sharpener" from amazon such as the one I linked above, is that not actually a sharpener, but rather a honer? I know the terms are not interchangeable, but am sort of forgetting which is which.

I am thinking for a $30 knife like this it probably makes more sense to buy a new one rather than pay for professional sharpening services...

Pull through sharpeners ruin the profile of your knives over time. Also this knife has a 15 degree bevel and most sharpeners are 20 degrees. The same people who recommend this knife (America's Test Kitchen) recommend the chefs choice trizor 15 [amazon.com] sharpener. I don't have this sharpener (yet) but I would recommend a professional sharpening, this pricey sharpener, or to just replace the knife every so often as it is very reasonably priced.

Fantastic knife. the only real knock against it is that there is no weight to the handle so it doesn't feel quite as good in the hand as some other knives.

For what it's worth, I have been using this knife for the last year with only honing applied to the edge until recently. Mine got dull enough that I tried touching it up with my wet stone. While that did bring back some sharpness it's not up to my expectation. I just ordered another one of these knives and plan to eventually buy the trizor sharpener

That might do it! I wonder if from years of using this 20° sharpener on it, it's removed enough material to reform the edge to 20°, or if it doesn't work that way.

I have to admit, this blade is good. But I have this knife and never use it because I hate the handle. It just feels so darn cheap.

Get a Mercer Genesis for about the same price or slightly more. Holds an edge really well
