Super Sharp Shop is a homegrown, locally owned and operated sharpening service. I love working with metal and I am a compulsive sharpener. I cannot tolerate a dull edge. Due to my complete disgust for dullness, I have pretty much had a life long learning experience through the study of sharpening tools and techniques.

I am encouraged by appreciative owners that comment on the cutting instruments left in my care. I continue to study and develop new techniques – or discover and revive old techniques. I claim nothing but I will guarantee an astonishingly sharp and durable edge on your cutting tools.

Have your kitchen knives, cutlery, scissors, garden tools and most hand tools sharpened by a pro. I sharpen at your restaurant, hotel or other venue and offer on-site mobile sharpening service in all of Mobile County.

A Call From A Mobile Alabama Sporting Goods Store

A Call From A Mobile Alabama Sporting Goods Store

I kind of got a shock when the guy calling told me he was the assistant manager of a Mobile Alabama Sporting Goods Store. The call concerned the sharpening of a hatchet made of D2 tool steel. The guy told me he was aware of the difficulty in sharpening anything made of D2 steel but asked my recommendation.

As I usually always do, I recommended the hatchet be sharpened by hand with a file and whetstones.

  1. Start with a mill file and proceed as you would if sharpening an axe.
  2. Follow the file sharpening with a medium to coarse whetstone. Go easy with the whetsone and look for the pattern or traces the whetstone leaves on the hatchet. If you can easily see the swirls, stroke patter or traces, you probably have too coarse a whetstone for use on D2 steel. Select a finer whetstone.
  3. Be patient. Really. D2 steel is intended to be tough and long lasting. That means it will not give in easily to being sharpened but one it has an edge, it will hold that edge for a very long time.
