Pretty good reason not to buy yeti.
Be careful with cheap knives. Cheap knives are made from cheap steel and depending on what it is they can be a total pain in the ass to sharpen. The used old hickory knives on ebay are cheap and not bad to learn on.
When you start take a sharpie and color the bevel and up the side of the blade...
It is definitely awkward at first but once you get the hang of it it works really well. And yeah pretty expensive, not Japanese natural stone expensive but that’s a whole nother rabbit hole. To the OPs original question I’d probably go lanskys or I hear good things about the spiderco sharpmaker.
