It's not very hard to learn how to put a serviceable edge on a knife...and you can continue to learn more about it for years to come.
I haven't seen any of Dave's videos but Jon's are excellent.
I went ahead and ordered the Suisin and a King #1000/#6000 stone set (the other one was back-ordered). Thanks for all of the help. I found Jon's videos on YouTube and will watch them all :)
