    How about some sandpaper wrapped around a dowel? Dont need a full grit progression. Clamp the handle to the edge of table, then hold the dowel on each end and pull it along the edge.

    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence

    I love birdsbeaks. One of my most used knives. I just buy cheap Victorinox ones and throw them once they dull... why would you try to sharpen one?

    I received a Tojiro bird's beak for free with a purchase long ago, and I use it to open up packaging, etc.

    To sharpen, I taped wet/dry sandpaper to a rounded surface (I use a wide coffee can) and it works pretty well.
