Does anyone have information on the sharpening of bissonette edgers?

Take a piece of dowel rod same radius as the cutting edge of the edger, wrap a piece of fine emery paper around it and use it like a hone ( push towards the center hole ) don't do anything to the bottom side of the edger.

If you look at the sponsor links at the top of the page, you'll see Bruce Johnson Leather Tools.   Bruce is a member and sponsor here.  Click on his link and give the site a little love!  He has a tutorial page with instructions for sharpening edgers, including bissonettes.  Just in case you're not seeing links, I'll post it here.

Aside from sharpening , I try to use them equally in both directions.  This kind of hones one edge when you are cutting with the opposite edge.
