Default alternate Sharpening Please help??

I have some G5 montecs and i think they need to be resharpened but instead of buying the diamond stone for the g5s is there any other way like a cheap diamond sharpener. Any advise is appreciated.

The G5 stone is the cheapest one to get the job done with. I've got a few hundred dollars in stones laying around that I use from 120 grit up to 1800 grit. If you wanted to go cheap you could try sandpaper on a flat, hard surface (marble counter top) from say 180 grit up to the finest wet sanding emory cloth that you can get your hands on but I doubt it's going to give a razor's edge.

I've got a simple broadhead sharpener, but I just can't get that razors edge. So I just go buy new.
