How do I use your sharpening file to sharpen my garden tools (shears, secateurs, loppers etc)?

Hi Leigh, open up the handles so the edges of the blades are exposed and run the file a few times up and down the edge at the same angle as the original, normally about 30 degrees. Wear gloves as a precaution in case to prevent cutting yourself on the freshly sharpened edge. You should see a bright new metal surface from the diamond file – if you have any deeper gouges these may take a bit longer to remove using the same technique.
