Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Okay fellas, after a question on another thread from @Eli Chaps I wondered about this. Vote, and let's see what we're made of. You can vote with multiple responses if you use more than one method. Personally, I mostly freehand but sometimes will do a quick touch-up on the Sharpmaker. I also use a belt sander for heavy reprofiling or thinning out behind the edge and changing blade shape. Edit: to add pull-through option.
