    The linked article explains it, but it's not difficult. Run it over a magnet, in the same direction, until it's magnetized. The stronger the magnet, the better. Keep doing it until it's strong enough for your purpose.

    Alternatively, leave it on a magnet for a long period of time. I store my scissors on a large magnet and they are all magnetized from long-term exposure...
