Anyone use these. Bought some 200gr the other day and just got them in the mail. I figured I'd have to touch them up a little to get them "shaving" sharpt but good grief. They might as well of sent me some butter knives. The cutting edges are so rough I hope I can get a decent edge on them.

You'd think so! Think I'm gonna call them up! I'll try the belt sander for the first step and see what I can do.

a lot of the old trad heads were sharpened with files with the concept of rough burr edges will rip and tear causing more damage leaving it up to the hunter how much they want to polish the edges to a razor.

Yep.... I still file mine. I light file till the edge starts to roll the. Use a diamond stick to lightly roll the thin edge over . Has always worked for me!
