Default Sharpen poker on tongs

How do you suggest I sharpen the "poker" thing on my tongs? I don't have access to anything special beyond what a 1950s granny would own, thats how I roll.

You might be able to use a concrete sidewalk or driveway or a grinding stone on a dremel would do.

You just grind it at some thick metal at an angle from all sides...
That's how I roll.

Shoot it out of a homemade pistol, in an angle that it scrapes the edge you want sharpened, against asphalt. That's the easy way..... ))

A file or grinder work best.
You now have an excuse to go down to Sears to the MAN section and buy MAN stuff!

take it to your local hardware store and ask them to grind it to a point for you. Shoudn't cost much if anything.

I would figure if its Sharp enough, a tool with which to poke holes in your foil... I too believe that every man should have a honing stone and a file available

I found a file I had purchased from the dollar store a few weeks ago, it worked extremely well.
Set the file flat, and drag the poker against it at an angle, keep rotating the poker until it gets sharp.
