Now at least, I have somewhere to start looking at ;)
Thanks a lot.

No problem. :)

Just remember:

Lansky/Smiths = Total sharpening noob, easiest to use. Easily expandable.

Spyderco = Intermediate. Not hard but does require you to pay more attention. TONS of options.

Japanese Waterstones = Advanced... if you make a mistake you can damage the stone AND the knife. You'll never get a sharper edge though.

Pull Through sharpeners/rolling sharpeners = NO! NEVER! ABSOLUTELY NOT! I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN!

:p lol
