How to resharpen carbide paint scraper blades??

Hello, I've been doing some paint scraping with a Warner 2-3/8-Inch Carbide 100X from Lowes. It does a GREAT job, but the carbide blades get nicked and chipped pretty easily (No matter how hard I try, I can't avoid hitting the heads of the finish nails that are hidden under the latex paint). The replacement blades are $8 a piece!!! So, how can I remove the nicks and resharpen the blades? Thanks

The only thing harder then carbide is diamonds. There's dozen of differant low cost diamond hones on the market.

They also work great for reguler knives that need sharping and last a long time.
Your not going to get out all the deeper knicks with a hand stone.
