Sharpening Services

 

Our professional sharpeners carefully inspect each knife or tool we receive to assess the best method to sharpen or repair it, often providing a variety of options to the customer regarding the approach. We specialize in hand sharpening and repairs and do all of our work freehand using natural and synthetic whetstones, rotary whetstones, buffing machines & variable speed belt sanders when necessary. Our staff have trained with knifemakers and scissors manufacturers in Japan and England and are continually trying to improve our services through training and innovation.
*We strive to provide the best service possible and return knives as quickly as we are able but cannot guarantee knives will be completed within a specific timeline.
Usual Lead Time: Approx 7-10 Working Days
Single bevel cutlery and heavy repair work require a minimum of 7 days before completion.
Knife Repairs
We offer a restoration service for Japanese knives: we can repair broken tips, remove chips and rust from both double and single bevel cutlery. We can also thin down old Japanese cutlery to restore cutting performance.
