Service

For years before I started making knives, I sharpened them. Sharpening is how I made my reputation.

After-care sharpening is still an important part of my work. Send me your kitchen knives, and I will give them a new life. Send me your scissors, shears, swords, and blades of all kinds.

Recently, I have been asked to do sharpening for industrial and professional needs. My clients include hospitals and medical companies, dentists, a fish-processing plant, and a garment factory. Some of these blades are incredibly expensive. Some must keep cutting 24 hours a day. I keep them sharp, precise, and cutting!

Prices

Caution: Sometimes a piece has hidden problems, and it will cost more to sharpen. I will consult with you, and we will decide together what to do.
