I currently have a Fuller brand, basic carbine blades you drag your knife over. Works ok, but I would like to know what is used most amoung all the CPC members.

Fillet Knife Sharpener. From two different Walmart stores one store sold them
for $3.65 and the other store sold them for $1.64.
I want to try the "Rapala Two-stage sharpener which features a set of coarse
ceramic honing sticks to begin the restoration of a bad edge.
Hands down, this is the best hand knife sharpener I ever used. I use it under
running water at the kitchen sink when I'm sharpening the kitchen knives. In
the field I use tooth past and a tooth brush to clean up the ceramic sticks
after use "IF" I have to do any heavy sharpening.
Upon discovering how good the single stage sharpener was I made it a point to
purchase another single stage and I marked them "A" and "B". "A" for taking the
original edge off and "B" to clean up and the final edge, on a first time
sharpening using these sharpeners.
I have sharpened a lot of knives with them and you can see a wear notch start
to develop after about ten or more knives. Because these are the fine ceramic
rods, or sooner if you apply heavy pressure. I also found that I can pop the
plastic holder open (with care) and rotate the ceramic sticks when they start to
wear. And then using just enough super glue to glue and hold the plastic holder
back together again.
Here is a link to see both of the Rapala sharpeners:
