How do I sharpen my blade?
The secret to sharpening a blade is to pick a style of sharpening: Stones, belts, or sharpening devices. Pick one and master it. I suggest you learn using one of your old blades before you hone the edge on your pirate blade. Maintaining a keen edge is paramount to performance. Its like buying a really fancy sportscar but then putting slick spare tires on it....not a regular spare but one of those mini donut tires. Doesnt matter if you have a ferrari....Those slick tires arent getting traction and that car is not performing at its best. There is a lot of online sharpening information. I urge you to educate yourself and become one with the blade...Again if you are having difficulty with sharpening you can send it back to me...Just cover to and from shipping and ill bring the blades sharpness back to perfection.
