I was having fits with the  fancy pants curvy blade on my Sog Vulcan knife.  I'd tried  wheels on my lathe with abrasive and  didn't really like it. My hand stones were a tad wide to be picking up the   concave curves.  So I looked at a few different  commercially available rigs out there. 

There is a really slick  rig from Russia that  lets you do one side at a time.  The rig lets you rotate the blade holder..

And there is this format I ended up going with.

The   factory made version of both of them run into the $300 ++ dollar range, which I thought was a bit ridiculous.

The Russian rig really does have the many precision machined parts  and engineering that  justifies their cost  - but it's really all overkill.

 

Really, this whole thing could be made from wood except maybe the part that clamps the blade.
