Kitchen knives are sharpened by hand on our precision aluminium oxide sharpening wheels that are water-cooled for optimum performance and temper retention.
This is the same process that the manufacturer who originally made your knife will have used.
Your knife will be returned with a 'factory edge' that will be around 1 to 4 mm wide and always with the correct angle for your knife and its intended application.
If your knife presents with a thicker than usual edge we’ll sharpen with slightly wider bevels to compensate for increased angles.
We also administer wider hollow ground / thinned bevels as standard for thicker bladed knives, cleavers and bushcraft, hunting knives . These wider bevels range in size from 10mm to 25mm depending on the taper and thickness of the knife. MORE HERE
Please note however that we do not perform full taper re grinds.
We re-profile bolsters which is essential for blade profile alignment – as standard and at no extra cost.
We sharpen regular double bevel knives as well as single bevel blades.
See HERE for more info.
Every knife is unique so we will adjust our sharpening to suit the knife.
Please read our T&C’s which cover every individual aspect of how we approach each sharpening.
We finish our service on polishing mop buffers up to 5000 grit which smooth the sharpening edge and create a brushed satin to semi mirrored finish on approximately 10-15mm of the blade from the cutting edge and finally we pass each knife on diamond steels to put them to bed.
Every knife is hand checked and will have to pass our Tomato cutting test before being allowed to be shipped back to you.
We offer a truly bespoke service.
Every single order is recorded, photographed and archived to ensure quality compliance and is backed by our 360° CARE PLAN which is a collection of our core sharpening principles and standards.
You'll have 24 hrs from receipt of knives to test your knives yourself on a tomato to confirm sharpness.
This confirms our sharpness guarantee.
Your knife edge will be incredibly sharp whilst removing the absolute minimum of steel needed to
create an excellent, attractive edge.
If you have any special or specific requirements that fall outside of our T&C's or 360 care plan we’re also happy to oblige ( your request must be a service that we can provide ) - but you must leave this comment at checkout when placing your order for us to do this for you.
