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.

Repair & Recondition

I repair & recondition all types of tools and cutting instruments.


One of my passions is restoration of old tools, giving them many more years of use. I always work to maintain the integrity of original material and design.

Cast Iron Cookware

I de-rust and condition cast iron cookware starting with an electrolysis bath. There is seldom any need for any further surface conditioning with the exception of possibly some light sanding. Then, the conditioning makes them look and cook great.


Mail-in Service

Send your items by Priority Mail and they will be returned within 48 to 72 hours. Include return postage with sharpening fees.

Walking Canes

On occassion I will take time to make one of a kind walking canes and staffs. I even take orders for canes and staffs with custom themes. I have done canes for teachers, nurses, soldiers and more. I need months of lead time for custom work.

Cast Iron Cleaning and Conditioning

I Can Make Your Cast-Iron Skillet Look & Cook Better Than Ever Before


After cooking in a cast iron skillet, do not use a detergent to clean it. That will destroy the seasoning (conditioning). Put hot water in the pan and bring it to a boil. Use caution here, do not put cold water in a hot pan! Let the pan soak for several minutes, then wipe it out with a paper towel. If something sticks, scrape it with a spoon to dislodge it. Do not use a brillo pad to scour it! An abrasive pad cuts into the seasoned surface too. Then, reheat the pan and apply a fine coating of shorting, oil, or lard. Do not apply enough to run. Just enough to wet the surface with a fine layer.

Singer Model C 868 Scissors

A pair of vintage Singer Scissors, model number 868, was picked up from a client on Hillcrest Road in Mobile AL 36618.

The scissors needed cleaning and adjusting much more than they needed sharpening. In fact, the scissors were fairly sharp along the entire cutting edge except for the first one inch closest to the hinge.

Examination of the scissor edge under magnification showed that the cutting edge closest to the hinge was pitted with small spots of rust. Evidently this customer did not do much if any cutting with that portion of the blade.
