Whether you're a passionate home cook, a chef or in the kitchen occasionally, a sharp knife makes your job more enjoyable, efficient and safe. Our knife sharpening service is located at our workshop in Kyneton and we are available to make a booking Tuesday to Saturday. We take great pride in hand sharpening our customer's knives on Japanese water stones to give you a sharp and durable edge. We can also make repairs to put your knife back in top working order and will be introducing sharpening classes in Autumn 2018.

When to sharpen

How often to sharpen your knives depends on how heavily they're used, how well you maintain the edge between sharpening and the type of knife. Generally knives used at home might need to be sharpened every 3 - 4 months and every 3 - 4 weeks in a commercial setting. We recommend sharpening when your edge maintenance no longer brings the edge back to the level you want.

Edge maintenance

To make the most of your new edge and keep it sharp between sharpening sessions, touch up the edge often and lightly by stropping on a fine stone or leather strop.
