I've got a couple of knives I just can't get a razor edge on them ,one is a frost the other a mora I've tried most things to no effect any ideas or do I just bin them thanks Trevor
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 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!
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.I've got a couple of knives I just can't get a razor edge on them ,one is a frost the other a mora I've tried most things to no effect any ideas or do I just bin them thanks Trevor
iam in stoke I gave a joiner who I worked with a load of pigeons last weekend ,he said in return he would sharpen a couple of knives he tried to sharpen them on a grinding wheel and made a total mess of them , like I said not expensive knives to tight to throw away.Where are you based ? Getting them sharp should be not too much of a problem keeping them sharp though is a bit of a art.
I would have a go at rubbing them at least you would know if you knives are no good or you need to work on your knife sharpening technique.
I have a couple of Mora knives which take a good edge with a diamond file and an old cut throat razor strop. They seem to hold the edge okay, or as least as well as I would expect. I tend to keep one for soft tissue and the other for doing the legs.I've used blade tech oil stone diamond I've spent so much time trying to sharpen them it will be cheaper to bin them
