Sadgit - I'm shocked! Anymore comments like that and you'll be a pot boy, not an under-gardener :)

I can highly recommend the diamond hone that gwiz suggested.

I use them for kitchen knives to gardening tools. The odd thing is the older they get the better they seem to work.

You can also get smaller versions of them that are ideal to go in your pocket for when you down the lottie & your knife needs a sharpen.

The link below is both sizes & 3 of each

I got a set of grinding stone drill bits from wilkinsons for a couple of quid.
Just fit into a drill, ands run them along the end.

I have no doubt this will wreck the tool pretty quickly, but if your lazy and its only a cheapy, it might not matter.
We use chemicals in this garden, just as god intended
