    Pro knife sharpening?

    Hey guys
    My one and only hunting knife has decided to refuse to be sharpened. I had to re shape the point a little bit as someone decided its make a good screw driver (cheers mum) and snapped a few mm of the nose. Where abouts can you get a knife sharpened and at what cost?
    Cheers

    One option may be to find an "old school" butcher with his own wet wheel. Don't let anyone near it with high speed grinder that will heat the blade n quickly screw the temper

    One of these

    LANSKY PROFESSIONAL SHARPENING SYSTEM - 5 STONES | Trade Me

    You can get them with only 3 stones I think , then you can add what suits you, some may not want the serrated stone

    I know how to sharpen a knife. I had to reshape the front and getting a decent angle on it is proving a mission.

    Or like me you can either:

    a) when you have blunted them enuough, send your knives to a certain forum member who "operates on beer"
    or
    b) buy cheap nasty Bachos one after the other, and then when you have a nice pile of blunt ones see step "A" above

    A diamond stone will let you re profile the point, then your normal stones, or a spyderco Tri sharpener will let you keep it sharp once you have removed enough metal to get there, or you can get some fine grit sandpaper and glue a bit onto a paint stirer or a bit of mouse pad and work away until it's back into shape, takes a while but it's therapeutic...

    Show us your welding skills...add a bit of metal and make a new tip.
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.
