Clean and sharpen two garden tools

This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the Level 1 badge in Gardening.

Sharp tools make for easier, quicker work. You may sharpen small hand tools like pruners or harvesting knives, or long-handled tools like shovels and hoes. Power tools are not included in this BB.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:

  • Choose two tools to sharpen.
  • Research the correct way to sharpen each tool.
  • Source sharpening materials and/or equipment e.g. files, sharpening stones, as needed for your tools. Consider borrowing these or sourcing used rather than buying new.
  • Sharpen each tool.

To document your completion of the BB, provide the following:

  • Photos of your tools, showing the blunt blades in close-up
  • Photo of your materials and equipment used for sharpening
  • In-progress photos or short video of the tools being sharpened
  • Photos of the sharp tools, showing sharp blades in close-up
