    Lansky works well for the money.

    Once its sharp you shouldn't need more than a good steel to keep it sharp while butchering.

    At the house, I use the cardboard/fiberboard wheels mounted on a grinder. One has emory grit glued to it, the other gets some white buffing compound. There are several different brands. They can even be made if you so desire. I can make a butter knife shaving sharp in just a few minutes with the set. Eats a bit of steel over time, but I like inexpensive Moras and the for mentioned boning knives which are cheap enough to replace when needed. In the field, I carry a Lansky diamond paddle with med and fine grits, folds up like a butterfly knife. I rarely need it it as long as I stay away from bone and hair.

    Gotta say one of the most beautiful sounds to me is the sound of a good carbon steel knife on my steel!
