I use the old method, oil, stone, leather strap and beer for the operator, but I do have a Smith's Sharpening Kit in my Bug Out Bag.

I am with Chuck on this. I use oil and a stone, but I use a steel to finish. When I am finished I can shave with it. The stone and steel I use was my grandmothers and is older than I am, but still going strong.

I've got a Lynksys kit with 5 grits, but I often brake out my bench stone to get MY BEST job done on it. I've been sharpening since 5 years old ( on a paddle driven wheel, sharpening axes, sickles, sythes, and an occasional adz. ) If I messed up on the tool or the wheel my backside paid for it.
I have one major question what do they use for cooling on a belt grinding system. I don't grind an ax without a water bath or better yet a drip can. That's just the welder's helper coming out of me.
