I frequently find myself giving advice about tool care and maintenance these days, and if you don't already own a suitable sharpening tool for your stainless steel tools, this is a smart add-on. Keeping them sharp keeps them doing more of the work for you!
The Sneeboer sharpener is an extra hard silicon-carbide stone mounted on an ergonomically-formed wooden handle and can be used to sharpen the bladed edges of all your full sized and hand tools.
Watch the video below for a demonstration of cleaning and sharpening instructions from Sneeboer.

The Sneeboer family has been making garden tools for over 100 years. Sneeboer tools are beautifully designed and built for maximum strength and utility - the heads are hand-forged from one piece of stainless steel and they are fitted with ash handles from FSC-certified forests.
