I found a pretty easy to do this. I was given one of those “work sharp” electric knife sharpeners. I heard about them for years but never wanted to long up the cash for one when I do just fine on a bench stone. It’s not really any faster, some but not much. It corrects a bad edge angle and they even come with diffrent grits of little belts so you can get it really sharp. It’s really handy in the kitchen as I don’t have to sharpen my best half’s knives anymore. She has scalpel sharp knives in about three passes. They come in diffrent models, but this plane Jane model is just fine.
