Sharpening Serrated Endura - do I purchase new Sharpener ?

Sharpening Serrated Endura - do I purchase new Sharpener ?

I have / own and have done for many (20-30) years.

Lansky Two Stage Crock Stick (have white rods as well)
Lansky Diamond Sharpener
Got a few Stone and Diamond stones (DMT) as well.

I'm not a good knife sharpener, I can put an edge on a knife but not a razor edge.
I don't have the patience.

I'm needing to touch up my Endura plus some used Endura's / Pac Salt I've purchased.
Do I use what I have above or buy used

1. Used Spyderco tri-angle sharpmaker as pictured
2. A New Spyderco tri-angle sharpmaker
3. Golden Stone ? (I carry the Endura everywhere including out Bush so touching it up out of home could be useful)

If buying a sharpmaker, are the rods that come with it fine or do I need to get others ?

Anything to look out for in buying a USED Sharpmaker ?

Anything I've missed, any other suggestions ?

Thanks in anticipation of your replies.

Pick up the sharpmaker, round rods won't work for a SE Spyderco. Gotta use the triangle rods.

For a field sharpener you can just bring a single medium SM rod. They're only $10 or so. Slice off a section of a road bike tire tube and melt the end shut for a quick and easy carrying case.

Which steel are you using?

For serrations SM any day.
If you be minimalistic only the rods.

Used: to rods should be rather clean.
The plastic body should be pretty indestructible but you never know...

Yes, Sharpmaker for sure. Watch the video on YouTube (Or watch the DVD that came with it if included. Same video.

If you have that lansky system they make a stone for that. I've never used one.
