    I use a small roller sharpener, but hold in hand and drag through stone several times on serrated side and then one or two times on smooth side. Do this every time I use it and blades are still like new. (Sharpen both blades individually.)

    Same here.


    But I have sharpened the blades before with good success using a sharpener like below, problem is that sometimes I get them too sharp which makes it tough to keep from cutting through the backbone, especially on small fish like bluegill.

    Thanks art. I have a sharpener like that. I was thinking of holding the two blades together, with the teeth aligned and dragging the sharpener across them. I'm thinking that sharpening them individually would leave a gap between the blades, (seems like I tried that) but fella's above do it? I also use the B&D from the Wart. Filleting dem Choupique really dulls the blades. Thanks everyone...BF Gonefishing, what is a roller sharpner?

    I do them individually/one at a time. I just go slowly and apply a lot of pressure so it gets down into the valleys, you go too fast and it doesn't work all that well.
