How to sharpen Rage
This is how I get Rage broadheads hair popping sharp. I think you could do this method with any replaceable blade.
Thanks for the tutorial, David…….The band aid was a nice touch! ;-)
They are replaceable for a reason. You sharpen them by throwing the old ones in the trashcan and installing new ones.
I thought you'd like that t-roy!
As for sharpening the blades. They don't shave hair that great or at all out of the package . So, I sharpen the blades before I hunt, and once I zip one through a 7 foot bear I throw them out. I guess you can insinuate I'm an idiot for wanting the sharpest broadhead I can get. But I'll keep doing it and enjoy every moment of my redundant life.
SDHUNTR, u should take the time to make a video of that to help others that may benefit from it, like David did…..
Good tips for all type of blades David honestly.
Good stuff bud.
Thanks for the tip David. I often wondered if you could sharpen the Trypan blades. They are sturdier than most replaceable blades and most times do not deform or bend when going thru a deer. In fact, I have 2 used broadheads that I could sharpen. After seeing your video, I’m going to get that stay sharp device and try resharpening them. Last year I couldn’t even find the replacement blades. And now they’re up to $30 a pack! Could save some money too...................
LMBO SIP! : )
Great Video. Thanks and keep em comin.
That's a pretty handy little jig for stropping, for sure! Bowsiter Kurt showed me how to re-sharpen my Spitfire blades on a Chefs Choice electric knife sharpener. The diamond wheels really put an edge on.
Thanks gentleman, since t-roy asked how I sharpened the Trypans I thought I'd do a video so everyone can see. I'm sure there is a better way, this is just one that seems to work for me. I think I could do without the sandpaper, and go straight from the bastard file to the smooth steel.
I found the Rage Trypans on sale for under $30! So I bought another pack- will have plenty to resharpen now! ;-)
