Pre-Thanksgiving Knife Sharpening

No, you probably already took care of your hunting chores.
It's Thanksgiving Day I'm talking about. This morning I just sharpened those knives. Sharpened a couple of butcher knives; a potato paring knife; dinner table steak knives. All needed some sharpening.
First I have the sharpening equipment; don't need to pay for new knives; won't get embarrassed cutting a turkey and ham for guests.
It's not just sharpening the hunting and fishing knives. Plus it's good practice.

That tends to be my way as well; Once I get sharpening one, I'll do a bunch of others while I'm at it.

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

Re: Pre-Thanksgiving Knife Sharpening

I have a handheld sharpener with steel and stone, in the knife drawer, and another in the hunting pack. I use them as needed, when needed. Whether it's during gobbler carving on Turkey Day, or while skinning or butchering a deer, bunny or treerat.

Might not be the most professional sharpening, but works for me.
