Puma SAK question.

Discussion in 'Traditional Folders and Fixed Blades' started by SuburbanBarbarian, Aug 12, 2018 at 5:26 PM.

    I posted this in General when I probably should have posted here. I have a Puma branded SAK. Looks like a black Tinker deluxe with a partially serrated clip point blade. They are TINY serrations. Any advice on sharpening them? I just ran it over a Block sharpener and prayed. You guys seem to be the only ones who have ever heard Puma made these, according to the almighty Google,ha ha. By the way, I'm new. Nice to meet you.

    Many years ago, I had a Puma Hunters Pal that had 3/4-inch or so of those real fine serrations. I usually don't like serrations, but those worked great for starting a cut and then continuing through with the plain edge. Although I sharpened the plain edge part many times, I never needed to sharpen the fine serrations. But then, I wasn't trying to use them as a saw, just to start a cut.

    Welcome! I avoid sharpening serrations (avoid owning them too) but when I have sharpened them I have used a round diamond file and light pressure. If they are that small maybe you can just sharpen them out too.

    Welcome aboard.
    This one has an actual sawblade rather than a serrated blade. I also think your best option is a round diamond needle file/ hone.
    The one in the pic is an eze-lap.
    Pic of your knife would be good :):thumbsup:

    Spyderco uses the angles on their triangle stones for sharpening serrations. You may want to try the edge of a benchstone. Some serrations are chisel ground, with those you'd sharpen the ground side until you get a burr on the back and then take of the burr on the flat side with a very small angle (almost flat on the stone.)
