    Magna Matic is probably the best. They are a little spendy but worth it.

    Look a couple pages deep in the commercial and residential forum, there's a long thread about sharpeners.

    I dropped a grand on the Magna Matic last year. If your like me and sharpen blades every 1-2 days the Magna Matic works great. If you run your blades until the backside is sharper then the front then look else where. It's rare to see any used Magna Matics for sale and owners never seem to complain about them.

    Usually it's the hillbilly who uses a bastard file to sharpen his blades who talks bad about the Magna Matic like he's some expert.

    If you sharpen often or have many blades you can't beat the magna-matic. I have even made money off mine.
