If there's a good way to sharpen a Forschner I'm not aware of it. Some say you can use a round file to work each serration individually but that seems a pretty tedious, laborious process for a $20 knife. Most conventional sharpening methods don't work well on traditional serrations.

The Edgemaker Pro sharpeners I keep in my work roll are supposed to work okay on those type of serrations but I haven't ever tried it.

Spyderco has profiler 'stones' that will do the job. I consider them money well spent since I don't like to throw away knives

Do you find the Sharpmaker does a good job on serrated? I have a Sharpmaker, too, but I haven't tried it on any of those kind of serrations.

JustPlainBill,
I do sharpen the Forschner. I use a fine India round file working each gullet to the point like a saw, which gets it better than it was new, but I was hoping for improved performance from convex scallop design. I haven't used a knife of that design I may not actually get what I'm looking for, but figured either would do double duty as a slicer.

How are you guys sharpening your serrated knives?
