Our knife sharpening won Second Place in a Sharpeners Report contest in Hickory, N.C. in 2015. Unlike some other sharpeners, we use a guided system that guarantees accurate angles.
Just about all diets feature fresh fruits, vegetables, or meats. You’ll need a sharp knife to cut up all that wonderful food!
Salon shears should cut hair, not push it. Properly sharpened shears are easier on stylists’ fingers and wrists, too!
Spend less time on gardening chores and more time admiring the results. Sharpened garden tools are much easier to use!
