Hi Pete:
Not meaning to be contrary but sharpening is all science.

1. Good(appropriate) steel ,properly tempered.
2. Clean, unused abrasives, mounted on a sturdy deadflat backing.
p.s. it pays to buy top quality abrasives as the less expensive types generally loose grit faster than you would expect.)
3. A consistant angle of approach generally religated to a holding device or jig.
4. Practice
