No see, I bet it won't. Certainly not "nicely." I think PatsEng nailed this one by placing the criterion for adequate sharpening of metals, in a much better light. I believe
it's gonna be mostly all about the 2 substances temper, and their density in relation to each other. Of course, there's gonna be minutely just a bit higher or just a bit lower grades of density/strength, even amidst the same substances, such as 2 pieces of iron. BUT now, in terms of "sharpening" one piece WITH another, I'm assuming the process would work infinitely better with one of them having a much greater span of difference in that one's temper, verses the other one.
And as PatsEng notes, I don't think it's completely requisite that the sharpener metal be a stronger & much denser material than that of the instrument you're attempting to actually sharpen. Although, in most cases, it probably IS the case of having the sharpener as a stronger forge of metal, or ideally, a stronger/denser metal/stone instead. So I believe
now, one could get away with having a much weaker tempered/less dense material to use to sharpen, SO long as the friction attributes it can create was exceptionally good.
But an iron file to an iron blade... No. Probably not, right? Chances are you'd come away with getting a super sharp edge in some parts, a super sharp but MUCH thicker overall edge in other parts, and a buncha tiny dull areas along the edge all over. Just sayin', you'd probably do much more in terms of weakening the overall material that you attempted to sharpen...
I got these decent brushed nickel knives on sale. And I like 'em. I don't wanna break them. X-mas gift. Last year.
And again, I am FAR from an expert in Iron Age metalurgy. I don't know all the in's and out's. I DO know that it was either King Solomon or King David- Quick Q: Were they the same guy? I know these guys changed their names up a bunch, like Ochocinco does (something about success). -BUT I KNOW it was 1 a'these fellas who were all p#ssed about those d#mn Philistines having all that sweet iron age technology for some time. The Jewish guys had to keep bringing their axes and h#es down to the philistine settlements, in order for those guys to sharpen them. Ya need that technology, 'cause it's just a monumental waste of money (insert: Philistine tight-wad with wallet joke here).
So yea, Either Jesus, or Tim Tebow, or Yahweh, or King James, or maybe even those 4 guy jewish writers of the Old Testament (they joined forces into some sorta 4 capital letter acronyme, but I forget...it's not NASA- it'll come to me)- Anyway, ALL these guys got it wrong. At least accurately & descriptively.
Same can be said for humans- "Iron sharpens iron." NOT really the full picture. I woulda said it much better, like: "Just as certain things can sharpen other things, depending on the tempered strength of both, and taking into account basic fricative qualities which become dependant & must be individualized due to basic density of both materials at play....MAN too, can sharpen other men."
~See, now that too me, just sounds much better. Ya know- Ain't gonna wanna learn how to boost a car from some dude in your own crew, and one who you KNOW, just like you, Has NEVER j#cked a hot ride before. Just like you, he dooesn't know which wires to tie together. No. Ya need a QUALIFIED car thief.
Same as Heaven, as Earth. Maybe it's- Same as Heaven as in ON Earth. Somethin' like that... Metal too. ALL is one: Heaven, Metal, and Earth.
