Lansky Blade Medic
Clarke Green's Cool Tools review follows.
Sharpening serrated blades has always been a bit of a puzzle, but the Lansky Blade Medic makes the process simple.
The tapered diamond sharpening stick will quickly sharpen nearly any size or shape serration, and the ceramic strip dresses them up.
As the video [below] shows, a couple of swipes across the back of a serrated blade will remove the burr that sharpening the serrations creates.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Lansky Blade Medic:
Take it from a knife nut - Lansky products are well made and entirely serviceable - for what the company intends them to be used for!
I own two identical Lansky sharpening kits and one stays with the "long stay" camping (OK, cottage rental these days) trip gear and the other is in the kitchen tool drawer. Lansky does a fine job on my Sabatier high carbon blades, but my Japanese water stones are the only tool to use on my high-temper Japanese knives and Damascus steel knives.
This little guy works great to touch up Spiderco serrations (and the hundreds of imitators out there). I have one Spiderco serrated-edge folder - it was a limited run for climbers - has a clip, a one-hand opening locking blade, and that blade is fully serrated. When you need to cut climbing rope, web, cordelettes, and sewn Dyneena slings you need those serrations!

Aha! Thanks for the link. I want one and Cool Tool's link is bad.
