We use a Shandon Autosharp 5 to sharpen our Cryostat
blades.  The knife sharpener that I purchased is
specifically for the grossing tools used by our
Pathologists.  The knife sharpener that I purchased
will "1) create a first angle of the blade edge,
preparing it for honing and 2)will hone and polish a
second angle creating an ultra sharp cutting edge." :)
