    You might be able to take a small metal file or cone shaped hone to sharpen the edges.

    You could take the apple peeler to your local hardware store and they could help you find a file/honer that may work. It might not be worth the price to buy a hone/file and you may just end up buying a new apple peeler.

    Use Emory cloth wrapped around a pencil ...Or a small half round metal file , you can find these in the jewelry making dept. Of a craft store . Good luck !

    Thanks for answering. I was able to remove the blade from its housing and sharpen w sandpaper around a dowel. Works like a charm now!
