“I know the frustration of working with dull tools and enjoy helping people to solve problems. Sharpening is a perfect melding of my interests.”
We use state of the art equipment to consistently produce sharp edges. With the Tormek T8 system, we create uniform, precise, sharp blades that are a pleasure to work with. We use jigs to mount blades at specific angles. The slowly revolving, water-cooled stone wheel removes minimal material and avoids overheating the blade.
Whether you are slicing tomatoes, removing an overgrown hedge, or cutting fabric, having a sharp tool can make the process joyful instead of frustrating and time consuming.
Simply put, we are tool enthusiasts. In our home, we enjoy cooking, gardening, and sewing.
We have experienced the joy of a sharp blade and the frustration of a dull one. Precision sharpening takes more than hand-eye coordination. It requires a solid understanding of metallurgy, mental focus, and creativity.
We love that our Precision Blade Restoration lets us connect with and serve people like you in our community. We look forward to helping you by sharpening your tools, so you can find renewed enjoyment in your work and hobbies.
