Knife Repair

I do a bit more than just sharpening – de-rusting, cleaning, adjusting and oiling as necessary are included with every sharpening service. I also repair loose slabs and pins. Drop off your damaged knife or email pictures with explanation of problem.

Metal Polishing

I combine old-fashioned service, techniques and workmanship with state-of-the-art technology to provide some pretty nice metal polishing. I polish aluminum, brass, stainless steel and other metals.

Carpentry Tools Sharpening

I sharpen an extensive list of carpentry tools including circular saw blades, carbide shape cutters, router bits, dado blade sets, milling bits, hand saws, hand planes and more. Read More


I sharpen just about any tool that gets dull, including circular saw blades, bandsaw blades, router bits, end mills, planer knives, granulator knives, slitters, chipper knives, multi-piece tooling sets, and more. If you have the need, ask about pick-up and delivery services. Normal turn around time is 24 to 48 hours for small quantities.

Have you ever thought about sharpening your shovel? A sharpened shovel makes digging so much easier. After digging through tree roots and rocks in the past, your shovel is bound to have a  dull edge.

Secure your shovel in a vice and file from each side toward the center point of the shovel head. The bevel edge for most shovels is about 45 degrees, so tilt your file at that angle to restore the edge.

Electric Knife Sharpener Reviews

I have a lot of callers asking questions about sharpening serrated knives and electric knife blades. Invariably, the discussion will lead to my recommendation for an electric knife sharpener. I have no such recommendation. Over the years I have picked up electric knife sharpeners at flea markets and second-hand stores just so I could take them apart to see what the actual sharpening mechanism is inside. With very few exceptions, the inside of these sharpeners looks like a torture chamber designed for knives.

In the future, and if I purchase anymore of these sharpeners, I will show you some pictures of what your knife is being subjected to if you use one of these devices. In the mean time, pictured below is the best electric knife sharpener I have had the pleasure of working with.

This high-quality electric knife sharpener (Terry Platt) is trusted by professional chefs in and around Mobile, Alabama as well as particular home chefs. Terry uses a 2 -step process using diamond files:

Step 1 – reshapes the angle, sharpens and rejuvenates the gullets

Step 2 – finishes the sharpening process honing and polishing the blade, while touching up the serrated blade teeth
