Tuffy,
What was your plan of action with the sandwich and bread knife? Are you still using the ceramic steel amd green compound on cardboard? I tried to go that route and bought the wrong steel from cktg. I used the steel before realizing it was the wrong one. That was $50 down the drain. :(
I have the grinder set up sold by Josh, but would like a non power way as a new gig will not have juice.
TIA, Eamon

Eamon do you not have some bench stones because you can use the edge to sharpen serrated blades I think Ken does it that way he has a video doing a Tojillo bread knife that way .

Eamon:

One trick I have that works really well on bread knives that have round serrations... I have a 1/2" diameter white, ceramic "crock stick" which is about 8" long (have had it for maybe thirty years). I chuck it up in a 1/2" cordless drill, clamp the drill in a vise, then work the individual serrations/grooves over the spinning rod. Pretty easy to hold the right angle or to play with various approaches to bring up a very nice edge. Moving the blade along the length of the stick helps to spread the accumulation of swarf. Use a "super eraser" to clean the stick while it's spinning.

Lansky still sells the "crock stick" set with 2 med and 2 fine grit stones for $16 at www.amazon.com/Lansky-4-rod-Crock-Sharpe...keywords=crock+stick

I'm not sure what the diameter is - maybe more like 1/4", but it looks workable.

There's an awful lot of ceramic rods for sale on Amazon, but they don't say what the grits are.

Good luck,

Tom

Tom,
Thanks very much! I ordered them and will give them a try? For the price? What the heck? A cordless drill and the sticks should be good to go!
