Like some would have you believe about fly fishing, sharpening a knife is not complicated stuff....the Lansky setup gives you the right angle-something practice with a bench stone will quickly teach you....

I use a coarse stone to start dull blades with then switch to a fine one to create a final edge....keep the stone moistened with a little water....

The best thing to do is to not let the knife get really dull....the angle you use is very slight....just imagine slicing a very thin piece from each swipe of the blade on the stone....I keep my everyday blades honed by occasionally swiping them on a fine stone from time to time...

I don't think diamond stones are needed but that's just me....
