What sharpening equipment do the forum folk recommend? I am looking to sharpen my spade, hoe, etc but dont want to use my wetstone which I have for kitchen knives (although I may use it for my secateurs).
Any advice or recomendations?
Personally i would use a file to sharpen the tools you have mentioned, not that you would want these tools razor sharp ?
From a position of complete ignorance, I just looked this up on the net and found that carborundum stone is an old-fashioned term for a silicon carbide stone, thus educating myself if nobody else!
my husband has an old sharping stone he uses and it certainly sharpens as i often cut my fingers when he has done the knives.
Thanks for your suggestions and replies.
