A tool that we are all familiar with is the machete. It is used to perform many tasks like chopping wood, cutting cane, cutting meat, chopping grass, and felling trees. Over time and through constant use, it can get dull. This may seem odd but many people do not know how to properly sharpen a machete. It is quite simple in fact. All you really need is a machete file or a sharpening stone or a grinder.
