It depends on what you call a regular knife sharpener. If you do not have access to an electric grinder, the next best tool (maybe even better, just a little slower)would be a metal file. Lay the blade on a table or flat surface with the handle hanging off the edge with the sharpened side toward you. A C-Clamp or the equivilent will make the job much easier. Using the flat side of the file begin to push the file across the sharpened area of the blade at an angle of about 20 degrees. Continue until you have filed the blade edge smooth and sharp. Then turn the blade over and move to the other end of the table and sharpen the other side. With a good file you can put a nice edge on the machete. Good Luck, DrDave
