Default Sharpening a tape dispenser blade

I've found, in most cases, that the apparent dullnes is caused by a
build up of adhesive along the cutting edge. This can usually be
removed with a petrolium base solvent. Another approach would be to
touch up the cutting edge by deepening the notches in the metal
cutting strip with a fine sharp cornered needle file or a dremel
cutting wheel.
