I like the Fiskars one, but it won't do big thick forged shears.

It depends on both where you are located (this list is international)
and your definition of "satisfactory".  Personally, I am very happy with
a yellow plastic device with a ceramic rod incorporated in it - similar
to but much larger than the small sharpener Fiskars brand sells with
their scissors. I bought this gadget here in Louisiana at an Ace
Hardware store, for about $7 or $8. It had no packaging of any kind, and
was sitting in an open box full of them.  The only marking on it is
"Smith's, since 1886". It has one setting for scissors (both LH and RH)
and another for knives.  It always seems to be in the kitchen when I
want to touch up my scissors, and upstairs in the studio when I want to
touch up my knives.  Yes, I could buy a second one, but I am trying not
to have so much "stuff", and I figure the exercise of running up and
down stairs will do me good.
