Best Answer

If a bench grinder is not available, take a medium course file, and run the file in a forward motion down one side, then the other side of the blade, till the sharpness is to your satisfaction, drawing the file back after the forward motion will make it shiny, but won't sharpen it. I use a diamond faced chisel sharpening rectangle.
