Cleaning and maintaining your equipment

Today as it's raining I have decided I will get out all the tools we have used over the cutting season and give them all a good clean, oil and sharpen.

The CK legend shears are self sharpening and I have found that using sharpening stone will make the blade worse, so I will just be cleaning and oiling the joints.

With the secateurs I will be doing the same thing but these blades will need sharpening with a stone.

Now that they are all cleaned and oiled, I will be storing these in a dry place over the winter.
