In addition to the good advice already posted, the fastest and easiest sharpening is to match the existing bevel. The easiest way to do that is to wipe the entire beveled edge with a Magic Marker.

Use a rolling honing guide (~$15); hone a few strokes and inspect where the ink has been removed. Fine tune the blade extension until the ink is removed uniformly across the bevel surface.

I agree that using the ” Scary Sharp” method is the most cost effective and flexible way to get going. Good luck.
