Sharpening Service

 

Sharpening services

I use whetstones to sharpen your blades.  The only time where a machine may be involved is if your blade has seen heavy use or has sustained damage or is a longer or more awkwark blade type such as swords.  After the initial repair on the machine, the rest of the blade is sharpened and honed by hand on various grades of whetstone

Turnaround time will depend on quantity of bookings and when drop-off appointments are arranged for as well as condition of your blade.  I cannot guarantee a same-day turnaround but I will endeavour to do so where possible.

Double edged blades (daggers and similar) as well as tools (as opposed to domestic or EDC blades) may be priced differently

Swords and blades over 20″ are machine sharpen only*

I run my sharpening service several times per year in a 3 day block – this is normally around the beginning of select months, depending on schedue.  Sharpening outwith the listed schedule may incur additional setup fee

Please confirm drop-off before doing so.  Please also supply your preferred contact details with your blades at time of drop-off.
