Diamond Tool Sharpener
by Ironwood Tools

I’ve owned a number of tool sharpeners over the years, but this sharpener is my favorite because it’s large enough that you won’t lose it, it’s easy to use, and has just the right features resilient gardeners should look for in an ergonomic tool.

  • Slip resistant comfort grip that is red, so you can easily find it.
  • Very little pressure needed.
  • 400 grit course side for re-working the blade and 600 grit fine side for finishing the perfect edge.
  • 15 - 20 strokes sharpens your pruners and loppers.
  • Safety guard prevents accidents

Each of the product types featured in my online store are offered because over the years, I’ve used them myself -- and my experience tending to my garden is easier, more comfortable, helped me conserve energy and minimized injuries. I believe in the functionality of these products 100%, but I do want to let you know that if you click on the ‘Buy Now’ button, and purchase one of the products from my distributors, I’ll receive a small referral fee -- which I’ll promptly put towards my production expenses for my next ‘Toni’s Tool Tips’ video -- where I’ll share information and resources to help you create greater ease and joy in your gardening experience.
