Default Beak trim

What do you use to trim beaks. I've never had to do it before as I feed them on a stone slab. The rehomer needs a bit of a trim.

If you have not done it before I would say get a tortoise vet to show you how :0)
You can file it down with a nail file or the like, but getting the tortoises mouth open can be a job. There is a way but can be a two handed job :0)
