It doesn’t matter how good your secateurs and shears are — if they’re blunt, they’re useless. Sharpen little and often, and learn to take pride and pleasure in it. Once you get familiar with the sharpening process, it won't feel like a chore.
This little bundle is all you need to get started. The #1000 Stone is perfect for every day sharpening, while the Twin Diamond File is coarser and can put a new edge on old, damaged blades. The Crean Mate removes rust, sap and grime, and the Camellia Oil protects everything from corrosion.
