Knife Sharpening

IMG_1301 (002)
Using a blunt knife is more dangerous than using a sharp one. Knifes are made from stainless steel and are measured with Rockwell units (Rc), so the harder the steel the longer the knife will survive. Send your knives to Blades Services to extend their life, so you can enjoy them more.

As part of our commitment we aim to dispatch all scissor sharpening  within 24 – 48 hours. However during our busy periods August – March we can take up to 4 days. Sharpening received after 2pm on a Friday or over a weekend will not be processed until the Monday.

When we receive your sharpening order, your scissors are dismantled and placed into its own pod. We then engrave the clipper blade with your initials and the date received. Once sharpened by our skilled technician they go through our cleaning and polishing process before being carefully packaged for their return.
