The Lansky brand sharpener has a special stone for serrated blades. Instead of being flat like the regular ones it comes to a point in teh middle (like a ridgeline down the center). Some GM's have them and Sportsmans Whse in St. Cloud had them as well.

It depends on the type of knife you have, if it is one which the serrations are on both sides of the kife edge you can not sharpen it. If the serrations are scallops ground out from only one side of the blade and the "back" side is flat than you can sharpen the blade.

What you need to do is to lay the back side flat on the sharpening stone and rub the back side flat, it takes some time to do. Work your way through the three sides of the tri stone and the back side of the kife should be shiny and the blade will be sharp again.

There's also a selection of serration hones on the market.

I should note that many professionals say that it is imposible to sharpen a serrated knife without ruining it.

I bought a "Chef's Choice" brand knife sharpener that works on both straight-edged AND serrerated knives. It has 2 stages to sharpen, but only the 2nd stage is used for serrerated knives. Works pretty good... on straight-edged knives it creates a bevel which helps to keep the blade sharper for a longer period of time. Good deal at $30 @ GM.

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
