I'd like some advice and guidance on sharpening some knives. I've got a couple decent Benchmade folders and some good fixed blades that will all need sharpening and touching up. I have zero clue what I am doing other than searching here and on a few blade forums. I'd like to buy a couple good books as reference tools. I know the internet exists, but I like a good refernce library. Any recommendations would be aprreciated. And then I need to buy some tools for sharpening. My inclination is to buy the Spyderco Sharpmaker and practice on some old folding knives and kitchen knives first. Then when I get to the point that I am competent with that maybe buy some stones and strops. I know there are some smart knife people on here. Fire away and guide the ignorant. Thanks.
