Flyboy--I take them out of the ferrule and put a blade in an X-acto knife handle for ease of handling. First run them over a stone then a few strokes on each side with a diamond hone.diamond stone across two blades with blades seated in head or take each blade out and do them individually?
+1, this thing works great!I use a KME broadhead sharpener with a diamond stone. It's real easy. I made a a strop by gluing a piece of leather on a 2by4 scrap. They are every bit as sharp as new and probably sharper.
Have to respectfully disagree Shouldernuke,Actualy noone will ever get a case hardend stainless steel small blade sharper than the factory lazer can if anyone on here or anywhere thinks they can they are deluded to say the least .Just pay the 12 to 15 dollars for the new replacement blades nmost large catalogs and retailers carry them .Its the best way to go IMHO
Have to respectfully disagree Shouldernuke,
Factory sharp is really not all that sharp. Anyone can get replacement blades far sharper than new with the right tools and technique.
THAT HURT:darkbeer:I agree, but I decided I wasn't going to argue with the know-it-alls. I know how sharp my Thunderheads are when I take them out of the package, and I know how sharp they are when they come off the stone. I don't need the know-it-alls to tell me which is sharper. :bored:
