My vote is for Magna Matic. I start by slightly flattening the edge with a bench grinder to cut down so the knicks are removed, then I side grind it to be my basic angle back in the blade, and then finish it off on my Magna Matic sharpener and balancer. I am not sharpening a ton of blades a week, so I can afford the time and effort for this process.
