Do those handheld blade sharpening/re-edging tools work?

that would be the former. you used it incorrectly, most likely putting waaayyyyy too much pressure on it. I would never just give a friend my Sweet Stick and say "here, have at it." because most folks haven't read the directions and don't know what they're doing. it's a very, very light touch that's needed and at the proper angle.
I use mine about once a year if that but at least it's there if I really need it.
