Part of making sure that you have tools that are in good working order is to ensure that they are nice and sharp. While you can always spend some money to get someone else to do the job for you, it doesn't hurt to learn how you can do the job yourself. Be aware that sharpening your own tools can very easily lead to a mistake that requires you end up purchasing a new tool. In addition, be aware that each tool will typically require its own unique method for sharpening so the guidelines listed here will give you some general information only.
