    Jon's video will teach you to sharpen the tip. The silhouette will help you maintain the profile so you can figure out if you've sharpened the correct amount to maintain the original profile.

    That's a really cool technique, John. Thanks for sharing it! I don't usually feel as though I have any issues with my tips (or profiles), but I'm definitely going to have to give that a try - it looks wicked easy. Thanks again.
