What part of Houston are you in? I might be able to help you if you swing by the house near Kingwood/Atascocita.

Practice and Patience! Don't give up! If that don't work take to a knife shop and have them do it.

Wart Hogg sharpener. Will put an edge on anything. Fool proof at that!

Here is a tip... If you are in the field and need to put a quick edge on to finish a skinning or gutting job, roll a window down on a vehicle... Run the blade across the top of glass a few times.

Work's great for a quick sharpening.

When I'm tryin' to "rehab" an old blade I use one of the accusharps...gets the right bevel back on the blades then I go to the stones.
