This sharpening Stone from Okatsune, has a grit of #400, which is ideal for everyday sharpening of secateurs and shears - just be careful not to drop it. There’s a bit more skill involved using whetstones, but the finish they give is second to none, and it’s well worth persevering to get the knack.
Wet the stone well before use, and don’t grind too hard. Most shears and secateurs are single bevelled - sharpen on the outside, and then smooth off the inside, going slightly over to remove the burr.
