How do you sharpen stainless steel sword?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I'm a full time restaurant cook and I always steel serrated knives before I use them. I've run into a consideralbe amount of dumb prejudice doing this - that doesn't work, you're wrecking it. But none of that I find is backed up by my practical experience. Use steel. it works. I just cut 600 slices od baggettte for a party next week and the abused little bread station knife I used cut them clean and thin after being on the steel.

Additional comments from a knife collector - Steeling in general does improve the edge, serrated or not, however the improvements comes not by sharpening, but by realigning the deformed edge. This can work several times, but eventually the deformed metal particles are lost, due to metal fatigue effect, and you will need to really sharpen it, steeling will have no effect.

Detailed information on steeling including micro photographs is in the related links section.

As for the actual sharpening, wider serrations can be sharpened using either triangular or rod type sharpeners, either ceramic or diamond ones will do. Sharpening is done primarily on the serrations side, about 70-80% of the strokes will be on the serrates side, flat side just needs few light strokes to remove the formed burr.

Spyderco sharpmaker has triangular rods suitable for serrated knives. It's in the demo video as well.

DMT produces dedicated serrations sharpener(diamond conical rod) and another triangular sharpener, which is also very suitable for serrated edges. DMT also produces several rod type diamond sharpeners of various grits, those also worked very well for serrations.

Smaller diameter ceramic rods, like those found on Edge-Pro sharpening system also work well for serrated knives.

Whats the best metal for a sword?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

When you are looking to buy a sword the best thing you want to do at first is think what you want to use it for. The reason you want to do that is so that you don't buy the wrong type of sword for what you really want. Believe me, I made that mistake and broke my first sword. So to make sure you don't make the same mistake I did, I am going to give you some advice.

First off I will tell you what each metal is for:

STAINLESS STEEL: Basically, the only reason you ever want to buy a stainless steel sword is either if you want it to break in half and cut you really bad, or if you are smart and know that it is ONLY for display and to look pretty for decoration.

CARBON STEEL: This metal is good for a nice edge that will stay on your sword and is what most would call, "a functional sword" and in fact, it is functional so if you are on a budget it is definitely the way to go.

FLEXIBLE STEEL: This metal is extremely good quality and will hold out a long time and even keep an edge fairly long. The only problem, IT IS EXPENSIVE! If you really want to go all out this is really the way to go because it is very flexible henceforth flexible steel.

I hope I made your choice easier and good luck! Buying a sword can be a hard choice so try to get more references also! If you are looking for swords try all around to find the sword you want also think about the kind of sword you want before you buy it! For instance, I prefer Japanese style katanas. Good luck! =)

I don't know if it is the best for making swords, but in a sword like a katana, I usually hear of Tamahagane being used. I was actually looking at other questions, like the strongest metal for a sword, and people say Tungsten since it's the strongest metal known, from what I've been reading, might be lies though.

Where can i buy Eragon's sword?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

no where the movie did not come out so never

the answer above is false the movie did come out as to were to buy a sword idk

The "Brisingr" was never in the first movie, as Eragon had not had it crafted until later in the books. The sword present in the movie is the Zar'roc ; which

was previously owned to the Dragon Rider Morzan.

I don't know where but some sword crafters might be able to be commissioned to make it. Pictures have been released of it so it wouldn't be all too difficult.
