7th December Sharpening Service Cut-Off Date Shop Closed 25th-28th December / 1st-3rd January
With Christmas on the horizon and the service busier than it has ever been we have decided that the 7th of December will be our cut-off date for sharpening that will be completed before the Christmas holiday. The shop will be closed from the 25th-28th of December and the 1st-3rd of January. Any knives dropped off or posted to us after the cut-off date will not be ready until after we re-open in the new year.
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. Single bevel cutlery and heavy repair work require a minimum of 72 hours before completion.
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.
