Man, I wish I could help you. All I can say is good luck. Between COVID and the sudden popularity of Ranch Fairy, but cut on contact broadheads are in very short supply everywhere. I’ve been waiting 6 weeks for replacement blades to show up from Magnus. It sucks.

job is easier with quality diamond hones(like video says) and good quality hard Arkansas stones that are truly flat. not much technique with three blade heads other than running through the grits and polishing the edge more and more a little at a time. stropping is probably overkill for broadheads as one or two trips in and out of the foam in your quivers' hood and you've "dulled" it back past what the stopping does. I'm about to touch up my first arrow out right now. :)

If you have a bench grinder, look into the sharpening/buffing wheel Valkyrie sells for 3-blade heads. I do not have it, but I have read a lot of reviews and it certainly sounds like an awesome 3-blade sharpening system. If I go back to a 3-blade head I'll be buying it. It has an abrasive wheel and a paper wheel for final polishing.

For the record, I shot 3-blade Woodsman's last fall and I had a horrible time getting an edge on them. They came with a really bad bevel and it took a lot of work with a file and sharpening stones to get them usable.
