ARS Sharpening Stone
Item # GT007
This specially designed sharpening stone is shaped to help file the ARS pruner and hedge shear blades. It takes a tough stone to sharpen the pruners since the high quality steel in the pruners is quite hard, so the stone is made of carborundum. Neither we nor our testers have had the opportunity to use the sharpener, as the ARS pruners have not needed to be sharpened since we began testing. We will let you know more about this sharpener as more women have experience using it.
ARS Sharpener Reviews
Since 1876, the Japanese company ARS has been producing high-quality professional pruning tools. ARS’ state-of-the-art technology utilizes high carbon tool steel to produce exceptionally sharp blades that hold their edge, cut after cut. ARS invented the tri-edge, pull saw blade that is now the industry standard. Though the name ARS actually comes from the Greek word for "art," it’s no coincidence that it’s also an acronym for "Always Really Sharp." ARS is distributed in the U.S. by GrowTech, Inc., a family-owned company we are proud to call one of our partners.
