Rapala Hook Sharpener
Have had one of these in the boat since day one. Replacing the worn out with a new one. Made for larger hook sharpening such as #2 bait hooks or large single soft bait hooks. Probably work on large treble hooks also. took ten years to wear out the first one, back for more.

Works but a little awkward to use
This sharpener definitely works and it is small if space is at a premium...but it is a bit awkward to use on many crankbaits. For individual hooks however, it works beautifully.
My file didn't stay locked in the open position, so while using it, I had to hold the file open as well as try to hold the hook and sharpen it. The file is also a little to compact, making it difficult to use on larger 3/0 and 4/0 treble hooks.
It works, but there are better hook files out there.

This product is okay for its intended use, but I thought the back side was a flat file. The back is covered by plastic and is not avaialable as a flat file. Difficult to work on treble hooks.

Handy tool, works great
I use this for sharpening treble hooks on my cranks and it works just fine-the grooves really make it easy and the grit is right for getting a good tacky feeling hook in just a few strokes.
