Cryptic clues are all about the setter even though there are basic rules involved. Once you get used to their patterns it gets easier.
I reccomend you study Dave's previous clues for 'clues' Smile | :)
 
Here is my basic process with this clue:
 
'Greek and Latin' was first. That didn't really fit as anything but 'g' and 'l' (Dave often uses single letters like this)
I couldn't see any other meaning for 'old page' so tried 'o' and 'p' (see previous comment)
'Blueprint starts off' was likely to mean that the leading letters of a synonym for 'Blueprint' were to be deleted hence 'an' (blueprint=plan, amongst other things)
 
After that it got a bit easier
My first thought for sharpens was 'files' (hence the silly comment)
But then I saw sense and went with 'hones'
