Sharpening ice augers

Any advice out there for sharpening ice auger blades? Will a work sharp do the job or simply destroy it?

There's some YouTube videos on sharpening auger blades. I noticed some are more difficult than others.

For the few bucks a bait store charges to sharpen them, I have always gone that route.  Some of them have an odd curve to them and are not easy to follow.    If you don't have a local store, most of the manufacturers will sharpen them as well.

If you have a Nils ice auger, that is even more difficult and even harder to find someone that can sharpen it.  The last time I sent my Nils head to someone in Minnesota.  I think it was $30 back and forth.
