So I get a clean pass-thru on a deer, recover the arrow, and see that the broadhead is in good shape, but one edge might need to be touched up.

Anybody care to share how they go about sharpening their broadheads?

My sharpener is just like this one but an earlier version without the broadhead wrench.

I use a bastard file. You have to be careful and give each edge equal strokes just as sharpening a knife. Remember that you are taking off metal with each stroke and the broadhead will be lighter in weight than when you started.

I SUCK at sharpening knives with a stone.
I use a sharpener.
I just wouldn't know where to start with a broadhead. So I'm looking for step by step directions.
