RE: how to sharpen image and straighten lines
You don't sharpen, you get it right directly.

I assume you used Gfig. As much as I love Gimp I deeply despise Gfig, because it won't produce a clean output. If you want a clean output you need a path and then stroke that path in "line" mode.

I recently wrote a script to generate paths for such figures. See there (and the figure in post #7 that shows how to use it to draw a star). Using it to recreate you star, and then stroking in line mode at 14px:

See attached XCF for the particulars.
