RE:Sharpening Hooks?

Good question Terry!

After tying a few I noticed the Mustad hooks compared to the Gamakatsu's are a blunt instrument. I will pose this question to a Master skate sharpener. This man is the only guy I will let touch my blades. You can shave with your skates when he's done with them, if that's the radius you want. And if the ice is too soft you can get killed setting an edge. I dull them with wood accordingly. Will get back to you.

Oh BTW! No dumb question only dumb answers.
