Worksharp is the way to go for me. It is the only way I have been able to put a decent edge on anything.

i use this and screw the broadhead into a shortened arrow shaft that has the insert still in the end.
(basically another arrow that got dinked closer to the nock and i cut it down for a handle)
i did build it up with duck tape to make it easier to hold at the correct angle while sharpening

This method works great. Go to YouTube and do a search for sharpening Simmons heads and you should pull up a video that shows how to do it.
