Hello All,

Up until last year I used inexpensive pruning shears.  These
were the type that the blade came against the flat, bottom
cutting base.  Last year I bought a moderatley priced pair
of bypass pruners (secateurs).  They work great, but how do
you sharpen bypass pruners?  They will last for years, and
could stand a touch-up sharpening now.

I assume that the same sharpening procedure would work for
bypass loppers as well.

It was never an issue in the past, for inexpesive pruners
usually broke before they went dull.
