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
My sharpening service will normally commence within the first full week of every month in order to build up several blades at once to work as a larger batch. This may not always be possible.
Turnaround time will depend on quantity of bookings and when drop-off appointments are arranged for. 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
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.
