A question for all you knife experts.  How do you sharpen a serrated bread knife?  It is a Forschner.

There are rounded stones/slip stones of various curves and shapes that can kind of fit in the grooves between the serrations.

Another solution if you can't find a stone that fits, is using wet-dry sandpaper and for instance a pen, a pencil or anything round that fits the serrations. Wrap the sandpaper around the pencil, sharpen the serrations one by one, enough to create a burr. Then deburr the flat side on a stone.

This is what I use on serrated knives.
If the "scallops" are only on one side of the knife it is much easier. Use that rod, then deburr the 'flat' side on a stone.

You can also use a rat tail file if you can find one small enough

I haven't had to yet. Probably should. I would probably try this guy's technique first

Thanks I'll order one on my next amazon purchase.
