I sharpen mine as sharp as I can considering that I use a bench grinder
and a file for the parts a grinder can't reach, and don't spend a lot of
time on it.   

I don't think there's much benefit to getting out the honing stones.

I balance mine with a pencil through the hole.  Side to side is fine.

Seems to be the trend these days... consumer documentation gets
outsourced or assigned to dingbats (or both).
