Paper cutters sharpened for the South Portland Schools. All sharpened and ready to go. More on the way.  The wooden one in the center is older than I am. It was easiest to sharpen and cut the best.

Hunting Knives

First of many for the 2015 season. Are yours sharp ?

Will machine sharpening ruin my knife?

Posted on September 16, 2015 in: Uncategorized

No it will not.

Our knife sharpening machine has a wet wheel. It turns slowly in water bath which keeps the metal on your knife cool. No sparks are put off and it is perfectly safe. It will not ruin the temper of the metal. This is how knives are manufactured .  Knives have been sharpened this way for hundreds of years.

My process should not be confused with grinding on a dry wheel.

If you have any questions about this feel free to contact me.
