Best in the field broadhead sharpener
« on: July 24, 2011, 12:40:00 AM »
What is the best in the field sharpener that you would pack??

My Lansky set up would not be practical.

Thanks,

Brad

I have packed a file in the past, but I just got an Accu Sharp, and plan on throwing that in my pack this year.  It doesn't seem to get them (I use Zwickey Eskimos) any sharper than a file, but it is much easier to use and seems more consistent to me.  (Free advice from someone who hunts and sharpens broadheads, but hasn't got a deer or elk yet with a bow-so take it for what it is worth!)

Brad, I bought one of these from 3Rivers and been pretty happy with it for a "field sharpener".

 

It has a ceramic honing surface on the backside that is like a whetstone for polishing up the blade after drawing it through the teeth. Plus it's light weight and small in the pack.

I pack flat files. Have several left over from my chainsaw days. You want a fairly tight tooth for use broadheads and knives.

Looking at the three bladed Wensel blades, a flat file would be easiest in the field.  

My Zwickeys get sharp on my Lansky.  My Accusharp is good for field sharpening for my two bladers.

for my two blade broadheads I use one of the Smith broadhead sharpeners, it has the carbide inserts and looks like a smaller version of their knife sharperner.  When I was shooting snuffers I used a file.
