    I'd just bin them. If the Frost is anything even close to the cost of the Mora, it's not going to break the bank...

    Use a blade tech to sharpen them they cost about £10 and last for ages.

    I had a frost knife I couldn't get an edge on but solved the problem with a Spyderco sharpening system. This allows you to sharpen the edge at two different degrees which basically allows you to reshape the edge then bring it back to its original shape which solved the problem.

    i have a scrapivore that i could just not get an edge on, so i wound up buying a worksharp (ken onion version) it has put a fantastic edge on, which it holds very well. I then had everyone at work bringing me their knives for a lick up

    I use a Lansky and can 100% guarantee that I could sharpen them! No idea where you live as you don't show a location, however, if you live anywhere near Stowmarket in Suffolk I would be happy to sharpen them for you. Sadly posting wouldn't be worth it!

    Thanks for the offer however I was looking for advice to sharpenen them myself . Looking at the cost of the sharpeners it would be cheaper to bin them .

    I've Just had same problem today, I spat the dummy with my Mora clipper stainless this afternoon as it wouldnt cut at all, not helped by the fact I was getting swarmed by nasty beasties. It felt sharp to the touch, but it just wouldn't cut. Its only been used a handful of times but obviously doesn't like the way I sharpen it. This is my second clipper, the previous carbon blade one seemed to hold a better edge, but looked worse for wear after a while so I opted for the stainless.

    Does anyone use a off the shelf knife that does hold a good edge.
