Sharpening Service

Having sharp tools makes all the difference. By way of contrast, blunt tools are downright dangerous. Which is why we've set up a professional sharpening service here at The Wonderful Tool Company for both domestic and commercial customers.

No longer do you have to put up with dull and damaged blades. Bring them to us and we'll give them a new lease of life and an edge that'll be razor sharp.

How We Sharpen

We'll select the best whetstone for each blade by looking at the material, quality, and condition of the blade and carefully sharpen it, constantly fine tuning to get the perfect finish. 

We use Japanese water stones and diamond stones to get the best finish. And we also use a Sorby Pro Edge electric belt sharpener that uses different grades of belt to bring the blade back into a condition where it can be finished by hand. This also allows us to get the perfect angle on the cutting edge.

Working this way removes the minimal amount of steel necessary and ensures a stronger, finer edge that will last longer. 

Our expertise and skill in sharpening will bring out the best cutting ability possible from your blade. Often we find the blades cut better after sharpening than they did new.

How To Use Our Sharpening Service

If you're local to Castle Cary just drop your tools off at our shop. Here's how to find us.

If you're not local send your tools to us by post. We recommend that you use one of Royal Mail's tracked services as we don't want your favourite tools not to arrive safely.

Please make sure that you pack them in such a way that they can't injure anybody in transit - tough cardboard tightly bound with tape should work.

We'll then sharpen them and send them back to you by Royal Mail 48 tracked service. Please allow a few days for us to get the job done.

If you think your tools might be beyond hope, please send us a photo and we can have a chat about your options.
