Can it be used to sharpen Falco F2 pruning shears?

Asked by Margaret November 3, 2020
2
Answers

Margaret, You should be able to use this tool for any bypass pruning shears. Remember to maintain the original angle of the cutting surface of the shears. This tool does a respectable job of sharpening my Corona shears and is simple and easy to use.

Can I use these to shapen a butcher knife or camping knife?

Asked by Taylor August 4, 2020

Answer

I can be used to sharpen camping and fishing knives. It could also be used for sharpening butcher knives, but I would prefer to use a proper steel for sharpening kitchen utensils.

Better than the Fiskars sharpening tool??

Answers

Edgar, I have never owned a Fiskars sharpening tool therefore I am unable to make any comparisons. I can say that the Corona sharpening tool does an excellent job on my pruning shears. Hope this helps.

Grit equiv? Is it coarse, fine, etc.

Asked by Jake February 23, 2019

The slightly grayer edge that you see in the picture is the carbide material. It is so much harder than the steel used in most cutting tools that it actually cuts away rolled edges and rough surfaces. There is no actual file, just a cutting tool that you run along the edge of the blade and it reforms the edge. A simple but very useful gadget, and will sharpen shears of all kinds, scissors and even hatchets and machetes. Well worth the price.

Does this tool work on machete?

Asked by AC December 16, 2018

Answers

Certainly can. The steel used in virtually all garden tools is softer than the carbide edge on this thing, so it can cut a new surface as you run it along the blade. Had mine for probably 15 years with no issues or things that it will not sharpen!

how long can i expect this tool to last?

Answers

I had one just like this for around 17 years, then I gave it to a friend. So I bought THIS one. It works GREAT for my needs!

Can you use these to sharpen hedge trimmers?

Asked by Edgar June 6, 2016

Answers

Yes, any bladed tool with a cutting edge can be sharpened. This has a carbide blade that you run along the edge of the tool and it cuts away any irregularities and reshapes the edge. Amazingly hard material, that carbide! Much harder than the steel used in gardening shears and even machetes and axes. This last may be tougher to sharpen just due to the angle of the edge and thickness. Lots more material to remove!

The sharpening took only a few minutes and worked really well. In fact I went to a Home Depot last night and wanted to pick up another one but they didn't have it. Don't know why. I'll find one!

Fabulous sharpener
Only tool I use to re-edge my Corona tools. Clippers 15 years old can still take hair off my arm. Pocket knives. kitchen knives, etc. Unless there is a nick in the blade this is all I ever need.

I always need to buy new pruning shears when my current ones become blunt with use. This sharpening tool is just what I needed to sharpen them and avoid additional costs of buying new shears. I like this tool.
