How to Sharpen Pruning Shears

Spring is coming and gardening time will be here soon. In this video I will teach you how to sharpen pruning shears. Sometime called Garden Shears, Bypass Loppers or Limb Loppers. They are easy to sharpen but you need to know how to sharpen each edge because they are different.

They can be sharpened with a verity of sharpening tools. I will demonstrate using files. It is best if you have a fine grit round file and a flat file. They will be used in different areas. A whetstone or a small belt sander can also be used but I have always used my files.

In the photo above, you can see the 2 different blades. The part on the left is sharpened like the blades on scissors. This video will show you how to sharpen scissors. However the blades on scissors are straight and this one is curved. Because of the curve the technique is different but you still end up with a squared off edge, not a sharp edge like a knife. The right side is not sharpened like scissors or a knife. It is sharpened on 1 side only. When finished you will have a sharp edge passing by a squared edge and that is what makes the cut.

If you need to sharpen your garden pruners, watch our video How to Sharpen Pruning Shears because watching the video is much better than just reading about it.
