I'm having trouble keeping my Rapala fillet knife sharp when filleting fish. Not an issue with crappie but if I keep a sandbass I have to re-sharpen every fish.

Interested to see what anyone does to keep knives sharp.

One thing that may help is a different angle on the edge. I sharpen mine to a 17º but I don't cut any bones with my fillet knife. You might try a 25º edge. Won't be scalpel sharp but will do a good job.

WorkSharp. Best quick sharpener I ever had. Gets them so sharp if you even look at the blade your eye lids fall off.

I normally use a Smiths hone, it has always worked well. I use Dexter Knives and they stay as sharp as any I have used.

I started using this little belt sharpener 2 years ago and will never go back to a stone! It gets everything scalpel sharp!

I am going to say that you have a "bad" Rapala? I have cleaned 75 sandbass with mine, w/o having to resharpen (I did resharpen, after I finished though).

Oh, I am a Lansky fan also.

I was thinking the same thing. I keep a Rapala knife in the door pocket of my truck that has cleaned hundreds of fish and rarely sharpened.
