These Niwaki Sharpening Stones are fantastic as they are specially designed for Niwaki Secateurs, but also great for Niwaki Shears, Topiary Clippers and other sharp stuff. The concave edge follows the curve of the blade perfectly, and they're small enough to get into tight spots.
You can chose from three different grades:
Grey #220 grit: coarse, for grinding out rough and damaged blades
Brown #1000 grit: fine, for regular sharpening
Sand #3000 grit, super fine, for honing and detailed work on high quality steel
