Using sharp tools, whether a simple knife or a smoothing plane is a pleasure, more efficient and safer. All too often we struggle on with a blunt tool and end up doing a poor job. But who has the time and the skill to expertly sharpen all their edged tools.

Whether in the home, garden, or workshop save your time and effort and send them to us. We provide a professional sharpening service across a large range of edged tools.

We understand that each item or tool needs a different approach and sharpening method for the best results. Some methods are just wrong and will damage the edge. Years of experience and considerable investment in equipment means it will be done right and ensure your satisfaction with the job done.

Am I Allowed to Send Sharp Objects by Post?2018-03-03T17:28:10+00:00

Yes you can given that you pack them properly and take care that they cannot cut their way out of the packaging. The following is taken from the Royal Mail website…

Sharp objects (including knives, kitchen utensils and gardening tools)

  • International & UK – Allowed in the mail, see packaging guidelines below:
    • Sharp objects like knives*, kitchen utensils and gardening tools may only be posted if they are packaged appropriately so that they are no risk to employees, other postal items or recipients.
      *Excludes knives that are banned under UK laws – see Weapons 
    • Wrap heavy cardboard around sharp edges and points, strong enough to ensure that the contents do not pierce the outer packaging. Wrap each item with cushioning material. Place in a suitable outer container such as a padded envelope.
    • The sender’s name and return address must be clearly visible on the outer packaging.
Can I bring your items for sharpening to you?2018-02-18T14:59:00+00:00

Yes, but by appointment since we are not always here. If possible we will sharpen your items while you wait, but this is not always possible. Some items require a considerable time to do properly and it would not be practical to make you wait.

Do you service equipment?2018-02-18T14:52:13+00:00

I am afraid not. We focus on sharpening services only.

Do you sharpen hairdressing scissors or clipper blades?2018-02-18T14:51:13+00:00

That is not a service that we currently offer, but we are introducing new services all the time so keep watching the site for news.

Paypal is the payment method but I am not a Paypal member2018-02-18T14:43:20+00:00

You do not have to be a Paypal member to use their payment gateway. You can  simply use you credit or debit card without having to join Paypal.

I don’t like making online payments.2018-02-18T14:40:59+00:00

That’s OK, many people are not comfortable putting their credit card details into a web site. You can choose to pay by cheque instead. Make it payable to R R Maynard and include it with your items for sharpening. The checkout process will give you the amount.
