What type of knife?
What is it used for?
What sort of edge do you want?
What is your level of skill with sharpening?

Youtube is a great place to start. There are many sharpening systems for different types of knives.
My favorite are the two paper wheels that go on a bench grinder. Great results but misused they can destroy a knife in short order.
If it can't get you in trouble, it's not an adventure.
