If you use your tools even for one day a year, you’re going to need to sharpen them. This is the perfect sharpener that I can keep in my pocket for use at any time during a long day of weeding and planting. And if we’re lucky, we have lots of those long days. We’ve been using this sharpener for years and years and can’t recommend it enough for ease of use and handy storage. At our house, we have several in different places or I’ll have trouble where I may have left it!
