Thread: Sharpen a Gut Hook?

    Sharpen a Gut Hook?

    Hi all,
    My general stalking knife is a Buck with Gut hook, my question is how do I sharpen the gut hook. I use a Lansky sharpening kit for the blade, any ideas welcomed, it's gutted proably 100+ in the last 3-4 years from new and now feels it is needing sharpened.

    A length of dowel with some 1200 grade wet and dry glued tightly round it will do the trick.

    +1 On the chainsaw file. It'll do a grand job & cheap as chips aswell 3-5 depending on the quality.

    Atb, Buck.
