Make Your Own Broadhead Sharpening Block

Make Your Own Broadhead Sharpening Block

I’d like to share how I made a sharpening block from bits and scraps I had in the shop. It is mobile, fits nicely in a pack, and keeps my sharpening items together.


  • 1 bastard file (10″ shown)
  • 1 old leather belt
  • 1 block of wood approximately 1 1/4″ x 2″ x 12″ (Be sure to select a block of wood that will fit both the file and belt.)
  • 2 picture mounting brackets
  • 2 screws

Secure the file using the two picture mounting brackets. Position the belt along one side and both ends of the block, and secure it with a screw on each end, as shown in the photo. I suggest you avoid the Hawaiian print belt and use a plain leather belt, if you can!

Voila! This simple sharpening block can go into a workshop, vehicle or pack. I use it often to draw file and then strop my broadheads on the leather belt, making them shaving sharp.
