RE:Sharpening Hooks?

I use a diamond sharpener( $10.00 at stoddards). I went there cuz they're a cutlery store... works great, there are 2 groves in it(one on the right and left). they showed me how to use it in about 5 seconds. it only takes a few stroke to make it so that even a lowly 34007 will stick straight into the back of my thumbnail. it is stainless, with diamond dust in it, and though stained(lol) no appreciable rust after 4 yrs. oh yeah... it's the only thing i routinely don't rinse the salt from and it is still fine.
