We inherited a dull bow-saw, some teeth were knocked out partially, too. Cutting with it kind of worked but I really want it to work at its best performance so I am very happy to learn how to sharpen a bow saw.

I watched the tutorial
I got the tools needed (flat, rattail and triangle and saw set)
I watched the tutorial again
I sharpened the bow sow on a healthy cold winter morning

The cutting experience did improve a lot 👌
