    Default Cutco sharpening

    Where is the best place to get a Cutco fillet sharpened?

    I'd pick up a Lansky sharpening system and do it myself. I just bought the fillet knife and the hunting knife. Neither were acceptably sharp and I had to sharpen both of them. The Lansky is easy to use, just make sure you are using the correct angle and you will be fine.

    Mail it to Cutco, they will sharpen for free and you'll have it back in about 2 weeks or less.

    I made the mistake of letting the local rep sharpen my cutco once. It was not sharpened very well at all and it was like having a Kirby salesman come over with the "hard sell". So just be aware, like the old saying, nothing is free.

    I agree with the above. I use a Lansky during the year if needed then each January or so, I mail all mine back and have them sharpened by Cutco. They have even replaced a couple without asking. While they aren't my all time favorite knives, it is truely a onetime purchase.
