After spending some coin on this 16" chainsaw, I imagine it would be far smarter to sharpen the blade when getting dull rather than just replace it with a new one.  

I have seen quite a few videos on YouTube with sharpeners that look like they clamp onto the blade and will index themselves to the correct position where the file can be run through to properly sharpen the blade.  

Where would be best to get one of those and is there a particular brand that is better than others?
