    they make a sharpener you can use for the strikers too but doesnt work as good on them

    I start the season with them SCARY sharp (I even take the brand new replaceable blades for my Strikers out of the package to hone and strop them sharper before installing them.) I lightly oil them before putting them in my quiver and then halfway through the season or whenever I go on a trip I'll pull all the blades again and restrop them. I found that my Lansky kit (down to super fine) works well on replaceable blades.

    Once mine get shot into a target, even once, they are relegated to the "practice" pile. The blades get replaced before hunting with that head, or it remains a practice head.

    G5 has a "flat diamond stone" you can use that they sell on their site
