Any suggestions on how to go about sharpening a blade?

    I'm thinking of buying a balisong from someone I met online but in the description and pictures of the knife show that the knife needs some sharpening, particularly at the tip of the blade. For my Kershaw Brawler I just bought a cheap knife sharpening tool on Amazon, but I feel like this knife I'm thinking of buying might need more work than what a $10 sharpening tool can do. Can anyone provide any direction on better tools, better sharpening processes/technique, etc.? I'm afraid I'm very much a noob when it comes to this.

    Looks like the guides make it damn near idiot proof?

    Truer words have NEVAR been spoken. I saw a quote once, something to the effect...

    "If they make something idiot proof, humankind will develop better idiots!"
