Rub the blades on the edge of a garbage can until it accidentally slips from your grip and falls in.. Then go buy another set lol..

On a stone. The same way you sharpen knives or chisels.

If you don't have good stones it's cheaper to just buy a new pair, though good stones will last a lifetime. If you want a good all purpose set at a reasonable price look at the Spyderco Sharpmaker.
If I'm ignoring you it's because you're a fallacy impaired fool. You're simply not worthy of my attention, sorry about your luck.

If they are really bad, replacing them is the only real option.
You can run a sharpening stone on the angled edges of the blades, to try & improve them a bit DONT try to sharpen them between the blades.
Often though trying to sharpen things like these, just makes them worse.

What's the new style? i'm in the market for better wire cutters. Dunno what style is best and longest lasting, or what kindo steel is hardest wearing. Got one of these i think, it's starting to go.

i've also got a really old pair of this style of snippy cutting pliers kicking around, have tried to sharpen them. The new edges i put on were softer than the old ones and they just weren't good at snipping wires anymore. Not to mention it was a pain to get the edges to line up and bite evenly.

i guess if one were to sharpen these things one'd have to harden the edges as well? Is that even possible, with the grip coating already applied? Meh, i don't have a big torch anyway.

It may not sharpen them, but it will clean the blade edges which in turn make's them a bit sharper.....cut 'sand paper' with them. It work's with scissor's and garden clipper's really well.
You can also use 'aluminum foil' but 'sand paper' work's better :)

They should have gotten harder by sharpening them.

There's side cutters on this site that list a Rockwell hardness. Might be better than those that don't. Those that don't are soft because soft is cheap. You get what you pay for in cutting steels.
