Will this sharpening devise work?
First off, I'm terrified at the prospect of sharpening my own knives. I was thinking of buying the Chef's Choice 1520, but, from reading the boards, have opted not to do so, which leaves me with wanted to learn how to sharpen with stones.
But, I'm a stone virgin and quite intimidated of using them. I came across a sharpening device put out by Shun. It claims to be easy and that even a novice can achieve successful results. http://www.amazon.com/Shun-DM0610-Cl...d=CIMLTJS2RSRN
My questions are (1) does this system seem to have merit? (2) What DVD on sharpening would you recommend?
Thanks a ton to anyone who will help me out.
