Default Broadhead sharpeners

Which ones do y’all use? Looking to get a sharpening apparatus and was wondering which one to use. I would prefer one that can sharpen any broadhead out there.

I use the KME, but it won't sharpen three or four blade broadheads, unless the blades can be removed from the ferrule.

I shoot a two blade single bevel right now. I want the freedom to sharpen more than one style of head though as stated in original post.

I just use diamond stones and whet rocks. If had a stay sharp for a few years and tried everything imaginable… everything

It’s the single biggest piece of crap I own…. So I wouldn’t recommend that route. Lol

Really? I’ve been looking at those hard but wasn’t sure of how well they work.

I like my Stay Sharp broadhead sharpener. I've used it to sharpen Magnus Black Hornets, Sevrs, and QADs. Takes a little time to get good with it but once you learn how you can get your blades scary sharp.

Ron the guy that owns stay sharp is a a$& hat, he stole the idea from KME, he is a convicted poacher and known on AT as a liar. I wouldn’t give him a dime of my money.

What angle guide rod do you use for broad heads?

Depends


Kudupoints I don’t use a hole and use the very top of the bracket. Iron will/replacement blade mechanicals, 25-30 if memory serves me right. A black Sharpie is your friend, it’ll tell you what you need to put it on

I use a g5. It's heavy. Just use the weight of it lightly and it does great. I have a couple Lanskys too and they're decent.

I don't about any of that. But the Stay Sharp made for Stingers is easier to use and works better than the KME Broadhead Sharpener, and at about 1/2 the price.

He also give some good advice/instruction showing how to "test" broadhead sharpness on leather. I found it eye opening as a rookie.

The3Rivers 3-Blade Broadhead CC Sharpener works like a Rada, but for 3-blades like the Snuffer and VPA.

Plastic, junk. Practice with a diamond stone or wet stone. If your not into that, send them back to magnus and they will sharpen them for you, free. Or just support the rooster sucker.

Don't know if he's a rooster sucker or not, but the plastic junk sharpens a stinger blade scalpel sharp and quickly.

You a Democrat ? Support who want, but learning how to sharpen with a stone is a worth while lesson.

In a thread titled "Broadhead Sharpeners" I have mentioned and discussed the Rada, 3Rivers C-on-C, KME Broadhead Sharpener, and the Stay Sharp for Stinger. I've stayed on topic and discussed "broadhead sharpeners".

You on the other hand seem focused rooster suckers, and then ask if I'm a democrat?
