    Question Electric Filet Knife Blades

    Does anyone know if these blades can be sharpened ? Can you send them off and for a fee have them sharpened ? Is it it worthwhile or just buy a new set ?

    My buddy saw an advertisement on TV about a knife sharpener that will do serrated blades. The Samurai Shark. At the time they were buy one get one free ( for shipping cost ). He gave me the second one. They work great on those electric knife blades. I've been using one for a year now. Don't know what they cost but when i wear this one out, i'm getting 2 more.

    Default Sharpening Blades

    I have used small chain saw files that fit the curve of the blade. works for me. Still using the 10 year old AMERICA ANGLER and same blades.

    I tried that once. I cut the ship out of my finger. My chain saw sharpening skills aren't too great either. Files look cool hanging on the wall though.

    Default Different perspective...

    I buy the Black & Decker electric carving knife at Wally World for $9.88. It fillets just as well as the expensive ones. And when the blades wear out (which takes quite awhile -- had mine for over 3 years) I pitch the whole mess and buy a new one. For $9.88, I'd rather spend my time fishin' than sharpenin'.

    Just my two cents...
