    If your blade is anything like mine , i laid it flat on a section of metal sandpaper and moved it round in circles keeping it flat.

    You can use a diamond stone. You would normaly have a plate and blade as a matching pair.

    I do mine with a set of 3 diamond sharpening plates I got cheap of ebay, each one a different grit, brings it up like brand new.

    Just move it around on a diamond stone as has been said,but,don't forget to do the plate as well cos they can wear unevenly too.

    I did a Pig In A Day Course, and Ray Smith (Hugh F-W's butcher) recommended having a specific blade for each mincing plate, so they wore into each other with use as a pair and became in effect self-sharpening. I use a diamond hone though, as I am too tight to buy 4 blades for the 4 different size mincing plates.

    That would be a matching pair then! He should have also said mark the plate so the blade touches the same side every time.

    well i just did as suggested and rubbed the blade flat in a circular motion on an oil stone and tried mincing a batch o roe and bloody hell!!!..........

    worst ever ...took 3 times as long as normal!!!!! mince just kept coming out in a big flat mush as if holes were blocked in the mincing plate which in effect they were....wasnt sinew or the like just kept clogging......bollox....have tro try summit different
