A Guide to using tool sharpeners by Fred-in-the-shed
Updated 9th June 2021
These are some of the sharpening tools I have tested and currently use.
I have sought advice from several manufacturers of sharpening tools for the best methods.
Tool sharpening "experts" will argue with me whatever I say, as everyone has their own opinions.
So the advice I give is based on the success I have had sharpening my tools over the last 20 years
This page will cover sharpening secateurs, knives, shears and lawnmowers.
Sharpening a metal edge can be done in many ways especially as metal edges vary in shape and size.
The essence of sharpening is to create a hard fine edge by removing increasingly smaller particles of metal.
The overall aim is to make the edge is as thin and even as practically possible, but still strong.
