I’m thinking of getting a small battery operated Dremel for sharpening dulled hooks on the go. Sometimes I have trebles that have a point or two that dull while bringing my cranks across rocks. I’d rather just pull out a quick automated sharpening tool and get back to fishing instead of digging out new trebles, fighting with split rings, etc. My question is does anyone on this sight have experience with any battery powered sharpening tools that you keep on your boats and what are your thoughts about it?

I would just use the rapala or BERKLEY POCKET HOOK SHARPENER. I think they used to have them at walmart. They rapala is probably better

The dremels aren't that good for anything. The battery takes hours to charge. I've had two and they didn't last .

Get a small hook file, about $ 5. Takes no time to sharpen hooks, treble or single. Doesn't take up much room either.

Or a diamond hone hook file. Best I've tried.

Thats the one I have. Retractable, pen style. Works great.

We sell the Diamond Sharpening rods that has a groove for hooks at frost cutlery about 4'' long and works awesome.

ive used the battery operated sharpener in the past(it was ok) and the dremel when at the house but the stone is what i use in the boat now. if the stone cant get a good point back on the hook in just a few strokes then i replace the hook. living in the land of giants it would suck to loose a fish of a lifetime because i didnt swap out a bad hook
