Disposable filleting knives

Has anyone had any experience with replaceable blade filleting knives

my sharpening skills have always been average at best  and have seen a few of these knives advertised as being surgically sharp and appear very cheap.

id be interested in any ones feed back that have tried these

 0 experience with disposable blades.. If you aren't up to scratch with sharpening just did a hard knife like swibo and a cheap electric sharpener off ebay.. it will more than do the job

 if u close to Rocko drop em off i will sharpen a few blades for u 

1st 2 is on the house, after that u can pay or come do your own

takes aboput 30 mins 1st time to sharpen - then about 10 after that

guaranteed to be hairpopping sharp

btw 

i use replaceable blades on a belly hook knife - and skinner -  i sharpen them as well- havent repalced them in 25 plus steers

i can get them sharper than the factory

 

 

btw this is a foolproof system - bit dear  but...

look up wicked edge sharpeners

There's knife sharpening guys in Perth that'll come to your house and sharpen them 'shaving sharp' for $6/knife. Buy a decent knife once and go down that route I reckon

Ensure they arent fucking the knife by taking too much off too quickly trying to get it done but if they aint thats cheap really as its not a fast process to do it properly....

Pretty sure old mate uses a Tormek but I can get mine shaving sharp with an oil stone now so give it a touch up myself.

You tube

 Check out You tube, there are plenty of demos on there on how to sharpen your knives on an oil stone. All it takes is practice and keeping the knife at the right angle so that when you put it on a steel it only polishes the edge.

When practicing my trade as a slaughterman years ago, if you could just shave with the knife then it was time to swap it with a sharp one otherwise it makes for hard work.
