Ice Screw Sharpening
« on: October 10, 2012, 05:08:24 PM »
Ok, so, with all of the cold weather, my thoughts have turned toward the upcoming ice season. My screws, however, are not so happy, and they would like to be sharpened before being placed. I searched the site for sharpening, but didn't find anything useful, other than a link to a guy in Canada.

So... My question for those in the know is, where do you get YOUR screws sharpened?

Links, anecdotes, prices, turnaround times would be great to know.

Google Black Diamond Screw sharpening video or scroll down through the FAQ's

Basically all you need is a vice and a couple of small files. I use a ski vice and a t-shirt (to keep from hurting the threads). It helps to have a new screw as a guide, but it's not necessary.
