Q: How do I care for my garden weeders?

In most soils, our Skidger blades are self-sharpening. However, some ground materials are harsh enough to create nicks that may improve with some basic care and maintenance. Click here to download instructions for care and maintenance.

How to sharpen my Skidger?

A regular metal file is usually sufficient for sharpening your Skidger’s blades. For a finer sharpen, a whet stone or sharpening puck can be used. Be very careful to point the blade away from you and to handle the blade with care. Wear protective gloves and eye wear to prevent cuts or injury.
