The Okatsune Sharpening Stone, with a grit of #400, is perfect for everyday sharpening of secateurs and shears. There's a bit more skill involved using whetstones, but the finish they give is second to none, and it's well worth persevering to get the knack.
Wet the stone well before use, and don't grind too hard. Most shears and secateurs are single bevelled - sharpen on the outside, and then smooth off the inside, going slightly over to remove the burr. And don't drop it!
