Talking ghetto style knife sharpening

As I say in this video, I use cheap knives. They don't sharpen easy and I don't usually care all that much. I mainly use them to brain fish... but then I would enjoy having a sharpish edge once in a while.

I tried many things and found this quick solution :

Re: ghetto style knife sharpening


Thanks. I'd be nervous and wouldn't want to do that on one of my nicer knives, but i am looking forward to trying on one of my knives I don't really care about.

Thanks for posting. Raining and nasty here in Fl today this weekend. So going to be a weekend of playing around in the garage. Teaching my son how to change spark plugs and oil today in truck, so will take Dremel to knife as well!

Now, why didn't I think of THAT!

Of course, some of the best ideas are the more simple ones. Thanks for posting, Rene! C'est bien fait.
