Blade Sharpening

Post By: wingman13      Posted: 11/14/2020 1:16:23 PM     Points: 811    
I know it's probably been asked a time or 2, but I can't find it anywhere. Anyone have someone in the Denver Metro area that's sharpens auger blades?? Have a couple sets of Mora's I'd like to get done.

Bud has done mine . . .reach him on his skippers link for Cherry Creek.Sharpening auger blades is different than any other blade there is.Don't let anyone touch your blades unless your sure they know what they are doing.
If you have a Niles auger,it needs special attention.I'll hook you up with the guy I use,but hes not cheap or close by,but his turn over time is fast.Even Niles sends folks there.

I had Bass Pro Shop do a set for me a couple of years ago and they worked fine. I don't know if they still do them so you might want to call them before you go.

Thanks a bunch guys! I've fished with Bud a time or two, maybe I'll give him a holler.

They are super easy to sharpen with the Ken onion sharpeners or really any sharpener. You only put an angle on the top side and then knock the burr off the bottom side parallel to the ice. Those moras are kind of soft and donít hold an edge all that long but as a result are really easy to sharpen. Most of the time all they need is to knock the burr off and they rip ice again.

Reinforces my theory that ice is for bourbon or rum, no auger required!
