    And all this time I thought you sharpened a serrated blade by throwing it in the trash and buying a new knife.

    That method works really well, faster also.

    Another much easier method to sharpen serrations is to just use the corner or a stone. Slow roll the serrations over the corner being careful to round over the tips as little as possible. This isn't the best way to go for preservation of the factory tips and pattern but it gets the job done well. This does work fantastic for the reversed scallop bread knives made by MAC & Shun, these knives don't have tips.

    Any way you could illustrate that just to make the process a little more clear, by chance? Been wanting to touch up my mac bread knife some.

    I have a knife that has very narrow v type serrations. A square rod will not fit all the way down. Do you know how I could sharpen this knife?
