What is the best way to sharpen the blades? is there a stone? I have used the sharpener for fleshing machine blades but they don't seem to sharpen them very well. any suggestions Thanks, DeLoy.

I use sand paper glued to a popsicle stick.

I use 400 grit wet or dry, and lightly stroke the edge, then tune with the steels.


The sticks sharper very well , if . . .
