Can you effectively sharpen a 12in hunting knife with a dremmel? if so How do i do it


Hi Patrick

You CAN, but IMO the dremel would be too aggressive for the job. My grandfather gave me a pocket whetstone many years ago and I use it to sharpen my Leatherman wave tool. Works amazingly well, I can almost shave with it.

(EDIT)
A good reference on how to use a whetstone to sharpen a knife can be found at:
http://www.wikihow.com/Sharpen-a-Pocket-Knife

This particular set of instructions refers to a pocket knife, but the principles involved are the same.

Hope this helps you out.

How Do Knife Sharpeners Work?


Knife sharpeners are a way of preserving
knives and other such tools that have become blunt with use and therefore less
effective.


Sharpeners work by grinding the knife
against a hard, rough surface. Usually stone is the most common type of
sharpener but sandpaper (which has a soft surface but is hard), can also be
used.



You can take your knives to a knife shop
where they will sharpen them for you (on average once a year), but if you are a
keen knife user and want to keep your knives sharp and in excellent condition,
it might be worth buying a sharpener of your own.



To sharpen your own knives you’ll need to invest in a good whetstone. These are
stones that are available in fine, medium and coarse grits.


The sharpener will come with
instructions about the angle you need to place the knife at in order to sharpen
it.


You can also buy stones for polishing
and to complete the job properly, after you have sharpened your knife, you
should polish it.

Can you use a knife sharpener on a bread knife?


If you were to use a knife sharpener on a bread knife in short term it might help the dullness issue slightly. However, the longer you use it the duller the grooves will be. A bread knife is a bread knife because of those grooves! My suggestion would be to use the sharpener on a bread knife for a maximum of four or five times. Anything after that would probably widdle down the grooves to the point where you are actually making the knife less effective.

What kinds of pencil sharpners are there?


There are many kinds of pencil sharpeners that have been developed through the years.

The most common ones, the manual sharpners, can be of the following kinds:

Mechanical sharpeners: a portable variety, usually small and in the shape of a rectangular prism. The blade inside rotates around the pencil, sharpening it. The shavings emerge through a slot.

Blade sharpeners: small and portable, hold replaceable shaving razor blades or permanently fitted blades. They work similarly to knives, but in a more convenient and safe way.

Cylindrical cutters: larger variety, stationary, powered by a crank. One hand holds the pencil, the other turns the crank.

Another common pencil sharpener found often in offices is the electric sharpener. It works on the same principle as the manual sharpener, but the blade rotates quickly thanks to an electric motor, either powered by batteries or plugged into the electrical system.

There are still people, mainly artists, that sharpen their pencils with a knife.

Do I need to sharpen my knife?


Every time you use your knife, the edge will become slightly less sharp, and you are more likely to injure yourself with a dull blade than a sharp one, as they can slip while you are working. Make sure you buy good knife-sharpening steel and use it each time before cutting with your knife it will also prolong your knife.

How to sharpen the blades on my Swiss army knife?


You can sharpen your Swiss Army Knife is using a circular motion. Start by holding the blade away from you at the proper angle. Run the blade of your Swiss Army Knife in a clockwise motion on the stone until you have sharpened that side of the blade. Turn the blade over and repeat with a counter clockwise motion.
