How do you sharpen garden shears?

How to sharpen garden shears:

  1. Place the garden shears on a flat surface so that you can see the blade clearly.
  2. Look for the bevel, or angle, on the blade and place your sharpening stone at that angle.
  3. Hold the sharpening stone against the blade with an even pressure and begin to sharpen by moving it back and forth along the entire length of the blade.
  4. Be sure to check your progress often by cutting a piece of paper in half with your garden shears; if they are not sharp enough, continue to sharpen until they are able to cut through easily
