HONE or HOME?

These two words are frequently confused and misused.  I often hear people say they are going to hone in on the answer to a question.  However,

HONE means to sharpen:  You hone your skills or you hone the blade of a knife.

HOME (IN) means to close in on:  You home in on the suspect in a crime.
