The least expensive initially and effective methods is the scary-sharp method mentioned above. Get a glass plate, a decent sharpening jig (Veritas mkII) and 4 grits of sandpaper and you can do all that you want. The jig recommended makes things almost foolproof. However in the long run, I think that diamond plates are the best for the initial coarse and then polish with a hard Arkansas oil stone and strop. The Atoma brand diamond plates IME are the best and they too can be gotten at Lee Valley / Veritas.
