Thread: Sharpening an Eka swingblade

    Sharpening an Eka swingblade

    Gents, i did too many legs with one i have been given and now cant get the bugger sharp again, what sharpeners do you use on yours? I normally use just a victorinox boning knife and a ceramic kitchen sharpening wheel, but it doesnt seem to work in the eka!

    its a lansky i use on mine. the one where you have the 4 ceramic robs in a wooden box(cnt remember the name) i bought mine from moray outfitting. makes it sharp enough to shave with.
    Always think before you pull that trigger.

    If its the curved blade its a sod. I bought a small sharpener from Gregor in Tain last september. Its similar to a blade tech but also has ceramic rods in it as well. This thread reminds me to look for a round rod for my lansky system. If you are struggling you could post it to me if you like.

    +1 for the sharp maker, but personally I just use a butchers steel.
    however I am a butcher and find it second nature but to a novis it will come with practice.

    For the conventional blade I use a lansky turn box 4 and a strop, for the unzipper a oval butchers steel or single ceramic rod from the turnbox seems to give the best results.

    Hi Gary!
    I use, for all knives the Vulkanus sharpener, its a very professional tool!

    Vulkanus Messerschärfgerät, Stainless Steel von - Schärfer - Messer - Ausrüstung Online Shop -

    In my car I take a similar one in a smaller size with me, just in case....


    I used the Lansky before, but these two tools are the most easiest to use and the results are razor sharp!

    Atb, dont cut your fingers with the perfect swingblade,

    People's hobbies are more their measure's than are their jobs.

    Edgepro Apex or Wicked Edge................but spendy much money.

    Nothing will touch either of these two bad boys other than a little Japanese master sharpening a Tanto blade
