Sure, it takes a little skill and practice to sharpen a chain saw or scissors. Maybe even a pocket knife. But any 10 year old kid with a file, grinder, or belt sander can sharpen a shovel blade. Geez people, your grandfather would be ashamed.

Unfortunately the guys/shop (someone please tell me the name) that used to sharpen all tools left Santa Barbara years ago. Now you have to take your loppers, saws, shovels, etc to Buena Tools and they ship your stuff off to Ventura to get the things sharpened. I wish the old guy I knew years ago, "Monty," was still around with his antique wheel stone sharpener. He would sharpen knives and such so they were like razors. Fingers watch out.

What do you mean by "used to"? 40 or more years ago, or just 10 or 20? I have a faint memory of one who would come to family house. I'd be interested in human sharpeners because they do a better job than I do. (why was this downvoted, once, per my view?!)

This guy used to come to the flea market on Thursdays. I had him sharpen a few things, and he did a great job, for a very reasonable price. He's out of Ventura, but is mobile, which means he might be able to do it here.

That sounds li,e a euphemism—but I just don't know for what. "Yeah, I'm going to the flea market to get my shovel sharpened." Heh.

Fine to sharpen your own shovel--if you know how and have a file. Otherwise try Buena Tools.

Is this a joke? If you are able to use a shovel, you can use a file to sharpen your shovel.
