My Strikemaster mora 7" blades were skipping today and stopping dead stuck at times... I believe it's time to put a new edge on them.

I have a large whetstone I can use, is that the right tool? I want to sharpen from the top, not the bottom or ice contact edge, right? Any tips are welcome, thanks!

The blades you get back from Fran might be better than new. His prices can't be beat.

The price if you try to sharpen them first, well, that's a different story. :lol:

ditto on fran-the blade is curved and angled,he has the tools to get it done.A toolmaker myself,I have sharpened my own blades but it is not easy to get it razor sharp.It takes more than just a stone to get it done-
