UTUBE has a couple hundred vids on how to sharpen a serrated knife blade. I use my Work Sharp belt sander to sharpen my electric blades.

I use the serration sharpener on my Work Sharp Guided Field Sharpener to sharpen my Rapala blades. 2 strokes/serration restores the cutting edge.

The flat side of the blade? That sounds very wrong, why the flat side?

Doesn't that create a larger gap between the two blades?

I sharpen the flat side of the blades because that is the way the Work Sharp manual shows doing it. There are also videos showing how to do it. Some people use a round tapered diamond sharpener on the tapered side and then use the belt to take the burrs off of the flat side. Using the belt on the flat side worked well for my blades.

Chain saw file works pretty darn good! Just hit each individual groove and deburr the back side.
