I think people with lots of experience sharpen the outside curves free-hand, on a slow-turning grind stone.
For sharpening inside-curves, Lee Valley (speak of the devil) has some conical-shaped stones. I've also heard of wrapping super-fine sandpaper around a suitably-sized dowel.

Usually you'd use a wet stone for super-fine sharpening. But that's
only for flat blades, I'm not sure what you do for the curved ones.
