Hereof, what is the best way to sharpen garden tools?
Place a sheet of 300-grit wet/dry sandpaper on a smooth, flat piece of plywood. You'll be able to feel the burrs (be careful—they're sharp) on the back side of each blade caused by the filing action. To remove them, lightly sand the back side of the blade. Keep the blade flat and move it in a circular motion.
how do you maintain secateurs? It's a good idea to wipe the secateurs down with warm, soapy water after each pruning session, to keep them nice and clean. Then rub the blades with vegetable oil to prevent them from rusting. This is particularly important when pruning plants with a high sap content because the sap can actually be quite corrosive.
Also asked, can Garden loppers be sharpened?
Pruners, loppers and shears are all sharpened in much the same way. Hold the tool firmly in position then pass the sharpener over the edge of the blade. Use a file, whetstone or sharpening stone appropriate to the size of the blade.

Make sure when sharpening to do so at the same angle as the blade, and if there are any cuts or notches on the blade, take extra care to file those out as well. 4.
