Steps to Sharpening Your Shovel

1.) Secure the handle of shovel in a workbench vise so the shovel can’t turn on you.

2.) Use a grinding wheel, hand file or Dremel Tool to sharpen both the front and rear side of your shovel.

The front should have a steeper edge than the rear.  The edges should be a wedge and not blunt.

Conclusion

After your first year of sharpening your shovel, I will promise you that it will be the first thing on your spring to do list.
