Resharpen filet blades
« on: Dec 28, 2018, 01:55 PM »
I know the blades are pretty cheap to buy, but I must have a dozen sets laying around that are dull and was wondering if anybody on here sharpens em ???
I dont always drink beer, but when I do I like to drink alot of it.

Buy yourself a "work sharp" blade sharpener and you will never look back.  https://www.worksharptools.com/

I have a worksharp and sharpened all of my fish fillet and kitchen knives.  They all came out very sharp.
It seems to go from zero to hero all some have to do is lie.

I do them either with a stone and a steel or with the Work Sharp and a steel. As time goes on I am using the Work Sharp more and more.

The work sharp has helped me tremendously in both time saving achieving a fine edge.  I still haven't gotten the knack for the tip of the blade.

For more information read my MN nice journal

I sharpen all of my knifes with a Rada sharpener now. I was able to get a couple of knives sharpened that I have had for ever that I could never get sharp. I have never been good at sharpening knives any way un till I bought a Rada sharpener. Only around 6 bucks. I have one of their fillet knifes and love it
