    How to sharpen the gut hook edge?

    I have a knife with a dull guthook. How would you recommend I sharpen it?

    Thanks in advance.

    GUTHOOK
    Step one: get a round file from a hardware store... the kind sold for sharpening chain saws.
    Step two: get a slip stone... one with a curved edge about the same diameter as the file or a bit smaller.
    Step three: carefully file the inside of the hook, maintaining the bevel.
    Step four: use the slipstone to polish it up.

    EDGE
    If you can't sharpen the other side, take it to a professional.

    no prob on the straight edge.

    Got several Chainsaw files, but don't have a round slip stone to fine tune. Hate to spend $50+ on another stone just for the gut hook. What do you think of this one, or do you have other recommendations less expencive?

    You may be able to find a ceramic sharpening rod of the right size. There seem to be lots of those around. It should work.

    Spyderco makes a round ceramic rod. A diamond coated rod is what I use, EZE lap and DMT and others make them.

    Diamond rod is fastest, easiest and makes (in my opinion) the best edge.

    Yea, I did the same searches and came up with lots of those, just wanted some opinions of what people are using, not so much of "what I could use", but thanks for posting.

    Got what I need.

    Thanks all.
