I agree with a lot of what Frank has said. Good little tip for the secateurs I saw was using a little orange oil on the blades to dissolve the sap and remove with wire wool. I like to use a small DMT diamond stone (the red one, check amazon) and use small circular motions along the bevel will give you a razor edge. Finish with a spray of GT85 and a wipe with a rag. As frank says above, your get years of use.
Mower, I done mine last Thursday. Cleaned off all the dirt with hot soap and sponge then corse sharpening stone on the cutting bevel and will be like new again. Again finish with spraying blades and joints with GT85 and wipe down.
