If there are no nicks in the blade, medium grain sharpening suffices. After 3 to 5 passes on the medium grain stone, finish by passing on a rough grain stone to lower the overall thickness if needed. However, be careful as overgrinding will cause the tip to lose its shape and the blade to become overly thin.
