I've been lead to believe that when the round and square cutters are dull, you just replace them with a new one ($12 to $16). I'm now hearing that it easy to re-sharpen them! Anyone have any luck doing this?

I flip them top side down on a diamond sharpener.  It's not factory sharp, but it works well enough for me.  Link below for cheap version, you can spend the money and get a better fine grade one.  The coarse and medium grits make quick work of flattening the cutters top.

Thanks, I've got a small set of diamond hones, I'll try those.
