The Sharpening Company has developed a quality controlled laboratory for their sharpening and repair services as well as a testing laboratory for new product development. It is complete with a wide variety of sharpening systems and procedures which are specifically designed for each unique type of instrument. Our objective is to produce ultra-sharp edges without altering the original design of the instrument.

Strict quality standards are maintained by our qualified technicians.

The work process includes:
(1) Each job is assigned each a separate work order.

The Sharpening Co. uses great care in handling items so that they are identified with the particular job through out the work process.
(2) Inspection of each instrument before sharpening.
Each item is inspected for excessive wear that prevents restoration to original cutting ability.  Items not meeting acceptance criteria are rejected.
(3) Sharpening of the instrument.
If an item passes inspection, then sharpening and repair is performed using special machine honing, hand honing, and hand filing processes.  Care is taken to maintain the original shape of the item and to remove burrs created during the honing/filing process.
(4) Quality inspection after sharpening.
Items are inspected for sharpness, absence of burrs, and new product tolerances.
(5) Finishing of the instrument.
Stains are removed from items wherever possible.  Instruments are polished to original finish.  Items are then packaged in plastic bags and sealed to prevent contamination and protection for shipping.
