I've been struggling to sharpen knives for many years now and just can't seem to get it right. I understand the principal, but can't put it into practice (i'm possibly over-thinking it). I've tried searching the internet for help, but it's often overly complicated, involves hideously expensive kit or just contradicts what I've just read else-ware!
Can anyone please suggest a good idiots guide, affordable kit or similar which won't cost the earth, but will keep my knives sharp? Thanks.
