Great service all round from receipt of order to despatch of the goods, I had nearly 30 chisels and some plane irons sharpened and you can see your face on the surface and they are the sharpest they have ever been.
I have already recommended the company to some friends and will continue to do so.
Neil Bishop from Berkshire
Excellent service will deffo use them again
Bill Killen from Campbeltown, Argyll
Great service , knives returned very quickly . Highly recommended .
Rebecca Keyte from Salisbury
Great service - I'd forgotten what a sharp knife was meant to be like! In fact it was so sharp that I cut my finger the first time I used it, as I'd been using blunt knives for so long! Can definitely recommend and would use again, thank you.
Stella Adam from Aberdeen
Excellent service. Had 3 pairs of scissors sharpened including my late Mum's pinking shears. Perfect now. Very fast service. Posted on Tuesday. Got them back Saturday. Highly recommended
Ron Wood from Chester
First class service. I placed the order on Sunday, posting to Robin on Monday. Today it's Thursday and I have the knife back looking great and cutting through veg like butter. Brilliant communications throughout the process. I'll be sure to use his service again! Thank you!
Tom Griggs from Melton Mowbray
To add to my previous review, I should say that it's super quick too!!
Tom Griggs from Melton Mowbray
Used this service a couple of times now. Very good result, razor sharp edge on my Wusthoff knives. Nice chap who I spoke to on the phone too. Would highly recommend it, you won't know how bad your knives were until they come back!!
One small negative though, I feel there's a big hole that could be filled between the 2 postage options. There are interim carriage options available that would better balance the risk of loss against the speed of delivery and of course the resulting cost. Although as a small business owner, I sympathise that these things are always more complicated to put into effect for small businesses. That said, it's still good value to end up with a knives that are better than they were when new!
UPDATE from The Sharpening Service - We have taken on board the points raised and have now modified our postal options. Tom's point was a very valid one, and we always welcome suggestions on how you think we could improve our service.
David Hunt from Gloucestershire
Very speedy service - my chain saw chain was sharpened and despatched back to me the same day they received it. Very reasonable price too. Well done and thanks.
Brian Warren from Cambridge
I have used Robin's service for a number of years and cannot rate his service highly enough. I posted knives to him on Monday at mid day and they were returned, highly sharpened, in this morning's post. Excellent!
Pamela Myles-Hooton from Henley on Thames
Super friendly and super quick service - I posted my knife on Thursday and it was delivered back to me on Monday! My Shun knife is back to being in perfect condition having had a significant nick in it and badly needing sharpened. It was super easy to use the website and Robin was prompt and helpful with additional questions by email. I thoroughly recommend.
Vicky Johnstone from Dumfries and Galloway
Great service and perfect repair! Thanks :)
Sarah Gear from Staffordshire
Thank you for getting them back to us so quickly.
So lovely to be able to slice and dice again with ease - much better than our home efforts!
Mike Burnside from Greywell
Excellent, fast & efficient service. My knives came back sharp enough to shave with just as they should be. We'll definitely use again.
Tracey yeo from Bristol
Great service with a swift return. Will use again
Andrew Purcell from Merseyside
My kitchen knives are like new if not better, sharpened to a perfect edge. Forgot what a joy working with a sharp knife is like.
Superb service, quick turnaround and great value. Will use again.
Tim Brooks from Andover
Fantastic service at an unbeatable price, thanks so much for a quick turnaround on my order, will definitely be using you guys again!
Hayley Burgess from Devon
A great fast professional service. Much cheaper than a US service I was going to use. Recommend to all.
Berenika Borecka from Devizes
Brilliant service, very quick and good job, friendly attitude. I definitely recommend this company.
Davina Brewster from Middlesex
Overlocker blades perfectly sharpened and returned speedily. Would use again and recommend.
Andy Lumborg from Pontpool
I just received back from The Sharpening Service one beautifully sharpened knife, in record time. Can't say I am surprised. I've been using this service for about ten years for various items from knives to scissors and it's always the same, happy story. Highly professional and friendly staff if you need to discuss anything, too. What's not to like?
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these guys. Thank you once again, Robin :-)
Kath Drake from Southampton
Excellent service , kept informed about my order and scissors returned to me very quickly and perfectly sharpened.
Judith jones from Birmingham
Can't praise the service I recieved from sharpening-service.co.uk highly enough. This is the second time I've used them and on both occasions the quality of work has been faultless. It's a very friendly, professional and efficient service which I recommend wholeheartedly.
Carol Joyce rom Durham
What a great service!
Fast, efficient and most importantly, a job well done. Very impressed that two pair of unusable dressmaking scissors were realigned, sharpened and returned by post within 48 hours.
Excellent, highly recommended.
Jan Stock from Maidstone
Amazing service! Posted Wednesday received 3 items back by Saturday.
All 3 items sharpened like new. Will be sending more items in the future and recommending to friends. Thank you so much Robin. One very happy customer.
Johan Everitt from Sutherland
fantastic quick service scissors ,which were almost redundant now good as new
Brian Ferris from Tunbridge Wells
Excellent service - chisels returned in days with a mirror-like finish and sharp enough to shave with! Tremendous value for money and Robin is very approachable and helpful.
Gianluigi PAGHI from London
I've used this company now for a few years. The service is definitely fast. Three days turnaround and I had my items back. The ceramic knives were repaired and, according to my girlfriend who's the hairdresser, the hairdressing scissors are PERFECT.
Sam Frankland from London
Robin was great when it came to resharpening a set of secondhand chisels I was given as a gift. Thank you for an excellent service.
Amy Mills from Bristol
Excellent service! Scissors and rotary cutter cut perfectly now. Very quick turnaround and at a fraction of the price of buying the same thing new! Will definitely use again, thank you!
I have used the services twice now in the last 6 months and i have to say the scissors come back so sharp. I think they are sharper than when they were new.
Very pleased with the service. Very friendly and professional and also very accommodating as my first visit was very last minute, i had dropped my straights, and i was able to get in straight away.
Definitely be coming back. Although not sure when as they scissors stay sharp for a very long time once i have had them sharpened.
Karen Ryan from Peterborough
The service was extremely fast and professional and the knife was repaired and sharpened as good as new.
Debbie Jones from Harlow
Received my set of knives back yesterday.
Just wanted to say what a fantastic service you have given.
Great communication throughout, quick turnaround and the knives are perfectly sharp. Thank you very much, will be using you again and recommending you to all
Scott Meadows from Horsham
Extremely impressed with not only the communication but the rapid turnaround and quality finish
Richard Tucker from London
The service has been excellent. I had snapped the end of my Global cook's knife and was thinking to get a new one but thought I'd give this a try instead of being wasteful. Within a couple of days of sending it, I already have it back - with a perfectly-shaped new tip and razor sharp blade. It's like having a brand new knife.
Caroline Windsor from Cornwall
Sent off two pairs of nail nippers on the Monday, received them back - sharpened - on the Friday. How about that for service?
Nikki Hiseman from Dartford
Very quick turnaround. Posted out on Monday and delivered back on Thursday. Excellent work on fixing the knife. Would defiantly use again
Caroline Annets from Oxfordshire
Excellent service. The dressmaking scissors and pinking shears I sent off to Sharpening Service were both sharpened and returned to me within a week. Both sets now perform really well and I'm very impressed with the speed of the service; I can't afford to be without my favourite dressmaking scissors for any length of time.
Brian Warren from Cambridge
Not only is the Sharpening service brilliant at honing knives, it also offers such an excellent service with the speed in turning around the deliveries. Well done!
Eric Chinn from Northants
Fast online turnaround to sharpen my Boker ceramic pocket knife. Very pleased and highly recommended service.
Mohammed Goga from Lancashire
My work knife's edge was straightened, resharpened then returned hair shaving sharp. Very impressed.
Matt Setterfield from Derbyshire
Super fast service and Global knives are as good as new. Highly recommended.
An absolutely first-class professional service. Fast turnaround, great advice, and top-notch workmanship! Robin and the folks at SharpKnives are the first place to go when I need my blades sorting out... Thank you! :-)
Russell Allport from Norwich
As a returning customer, I am again more than satisfied with the service that Robin and his team provides. It is fast and efficient and the quality/workmanship of the sharpeners cannot be faulted.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sharpening Services.
Simon Godfrey from Berkshire
Great service - had two Global knives with broken tips repaired & sharpened within a few days over the Xmas break. Highly recommended.
Andy Baker from Dartford
Thank you Robin. It's so nice to deal with a specialist who gives good experienced advice, a lightening fast turn around and very reasonable prices. Blade now so sharp a small mishap nearly took my finger off !!!!! Thanks again.
Mark Firmin from Newmarket
Wow, what a service. I sent my Hattori Japanese Chefs knives to Sharpening Services on a Friday, on Saturday the knives arrived and they were despatched back to me on Monday morning.
I received them on Tuesday and was absolutely delighted with the edge. I believe they are actually sharper now than when I first bought them.
Brilliant sharpening service and brilliant turn around.
I would highly recommend these services.
Lewis Moonie from Dundee
These guys do a great job quickly, just like they promise. Sent them my two favourite knives, a small Global and my everyday constant, a Masakage Santuko which cost a fortune. Both without tips. (Don't ask). Both repaired perfectly, and sent back by return.
One very happy customer here!
Lloyd Martin from Wigan
Very impressed with the evenness of the grind/refinish of the edges on my global knives. Good job. Will recommend and use again. Thanks.
Russell Allport from Norwich
Excellent. Fast and efficient service.
Will definitely be using again.
Melanie Burns from Guernsey
Very pleased with the service and efficiency. Well impressed.
Pam Goddard from Sevenoaks
Glad to have found this company. Very old knives returned like new. Excellent service with very good communication and speedy return. Will use this service again.
Lesley Featherstone from Whitby
Excellent service, good communication and speedy return, will use again
Siera Gollan from Northamptonshire
So happy that I found this company - great service at a great price! My knives are so sharp and lovely now. I was a little anxious about sending them away, especially my "special" Japanese knife that no one except for me is allowed to use (I also sent 8 German made knives, including serrated bread knife, and 2 kitchen shears). I shouldn't have worried! The turn around time and communication were spot on. Sent my knives on Monday - got them back on Thursday. The link to the post office requirements were so helpful too as I did have to get my postman to look them up after he initially said "no knives"! Thanks so much!
I used Robin after a recommendation from a friend after I struggled to find a sharpener for my work tools (clipper blades). I am very happy with his service, the tools returned swiftly and looked clean and were brilliantly sharpened, so I highly recommend this professional service and will definitely be using it again.
dee from Oxhsott
great service, great comms, highly recommend
Ian Cook from Nottingham
Thank you for the prompt return of my Global bread knife. After twenty years of daily use and the effects of my efforts to maintain the sharpness of its scalloped edge, I despaired of it being truly sharp again. You have edged the scallops and restored the true bevel on the back of the blade - all under the guise of 'sharpening'. It is like new again and cuts perfectly.
I wish that I lived closer to you so that I did not have to endure Royal Mail staff treating me as a terrorist and demanding that the knife be entombed in cardboard before they would accept it!
Rita Svarca from Liverpool
Thank you so much!!! Overlocker knifes work very well after sharpening.
Christina Evans from Trowbridge
Excellent speedy service , will definetly be using again and recommending to others
Roger Shepherd from Bristol
Very impressed with speed of service and the sharpness of the knives. Wish I'd used this service earlier.
David Edwards from Berkshire
Fantastic service, would not hesitate to recommend and use again. My knife is now better than ever- thank you!
John Burnett-Stuart from Aberdeen
Excellent service, very fast turnaround.
Mike Prostayko from Droitwich
Brilliant service. I'm only a home cook with a few knives to sharpen but they were returned to me in 48 hours. Status of my order updated via email so good communications too. Will certainly use again.
Gemma Langford from Weston Super Mare
Excellent service, fast turn around and very pleased with my blades, definitely recommend. Many Thanks again
Tim Rudd-Clarke from Upper Chute
Brilliant service, and compared to buying a new german kitchen knife, Sharpening Service makes total economic sense.
Linda Anderson from Derbyshire
Amazing service. I posted my pinking shears on Tuesday and they were returned ,sharpened, on Friday! Excellent communication from Robin letting me know they had arrived and when they were due to be dispatched. The standard of the sharpening is also excellent, the pinking shears now cut like a dream. Thank you!
Mr Conder from Surrey
After hours of trawling the web for what looked like a decent sharpening service I with some trepidation sent of my prized Global chef knife to the sharpening service, i promptly received my knife back after a few days and the first thing i did was finely dice an onion, my word i don't even remember the knife being that sharp when i first bought it, utterly brilliant !!
Thank you Sharpening Service! Always remember people a blunt knife is a dangerous knife!
Eileen Duncan from Carnoustie, Angus
I sent a serrated edge knife for sharpening and am delighted with the result. Knife was returned to me within two days. Excellent service and communication re progress of order. Would have no hesitation in recommending to others.
Kevin Holt from Bucks.
My 5 Japanese Shun knives were in a bit of a sorry state..... They were returned next day. I thought he had made a mistake and had sent me 5 new ones back... ;-)
Della Whiteside from Cheshire
The service i received from Robin was first class, super efficient and full of communication.
My knives have been repaired to like brand new and i was blown away by the one day turnaround.
Would highly recommend and will be using again when needed.
Richard Newell from Warminster
Sent 2 chainsaws 2nd class Post on Wednesday received back sharpened the following Monday. Excellent service, would recommend to anyone
Val Dunkley from Staffordshire
Have had these pinking shears for over 50 years and the wouldn't cut butter. They are now like new, I am so pleaded I found the sharpening service and would recommend them to anyone. Very helpful and a fast and efficient service. Many thanks
Robert Sims from Swansea
Superb service , my knife is now sharper than it was brand new. My knife was recieved on wednesday , sharpened the same day and sent back to me the next day. Cant fault this excellent service and at a very good price. I am very happy and will definately use this service again, well recommended.
P Anslow from Telford
Very pleased with the service and customer service received. Very prompt delivery, kept informed of order status. Razor sharp blades, really good edge. Would highly recommend. Website added to bookmarks for future blade servicing. Many thanks!!
Lynne Russell from Cardiff
Very pleased and impressed with service and level of customer care from Sharpening Service. They absorbed the cost to repair some damage that I did not include, and kept me informed on a regular basis. If only all companies treated customers this way. Definitely recommend. A five star company.
Excellent service. A email to say they had received the scissors and then another to let me know they had returned them. Many thanks. Will use again.
David Bima from London
Great service with excellent turnaround and it's so great to have our Sabatier knife set back to how they were when we get them 7 years ago. I'm handy enough with a steel to get a decent edge on a kitchen knife but they badly needed regrinding, I just didn't realise how much! The minimal cost to get them sharpened makes it all the more worthwhile to have bought a quality set of knives which will last for a good few years. Sent quickly through Royal Mail and back with us in a few days. Thanks.
Mindaugas Uldukis from Essex
I am a very picky person, especially if I want to be. The first thing is I posted it on Wednesday and on Friday morning I had my knives back in my kitchen! That is what I call a perfect service. The second thing is I inspected all my 4 Kai Shun knives very closely and the only thing I found was perfect sharpening. The knives are sharp as a razor, I can slice a tomato without holding it. It is the highly recommended sharpening service and I'm sure I will be using it again and again. Thank you guys!
Yvonne Winter from Cardiff
Excellent all round first class service cannot recommend highly enough !
Hazel Thornhill from Berkshire
After looking for a long time I eventually found Robin. What an excellent service and by return. My Pinking Shears are now working better than when I bought them. I have displayed Sharpening Service's details in my local sewing shop together with some business cards and they were very pleased to have them. A service like this is second to none. EXCELLENT Robin!!!!! Many thanks.
Angi Morton from Sheffield.
I was a little dubious about sending my Overlocker blades to be sharpened. However, I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the service I received. Prompt service, and back within the week. Far better option than either (a) purchasing new Babylock blades at a very high expense, or (b), getting some "copy" blades which may have caused a lot of problems.
I have not hesitated in recommending this company to my friends who sew too, and where well maintained blades are a must.
Mike Wiltshire from Aylesbury
Excellent service - very quick response and really pleased with the results
Elizabeth Crewe from London
Very good service and communication. My over locker blade was sent back to me very promptly. Will definitely use this service again.
Brian Warren from Cambridge
I'm always full of praise for the service offered by Robin and his colleagues and the most recent order has been no exception - A quality service which most others should emulate!
Nicholas Ayre from London
What a fantastic service - brought my sad, blunt chisels back to life again. Even better - I didn't have to try and sharpen them myself . Well worth the money, a very efficient service and great email updates so I always knew how things were going.
David Young from Peterborough
I used the Sharpening Service for the first time to sharpen our range of kitchen knives and scissors. They provided an excellent and very swift service, returning our knives beautifully sharpened the day after they received them. Their communications were first class, and they even informed us about one of the knives which has a split in the blade which we had never noticed for ourselves. I recommend the Sharpening Service very highly.
Griff from Wivenhoe
Ultra-efficient service as ever! Thank you.
Donald Robertson from Inverness
Excellent service - speedy and very reasonably priced. I have now had by kitchen knives sharpened twice and will continue to use the Sharpening Service in the future.
Annette Cooke from Birmingham
2nd time I've used this outstanding service - my overlocker cutters are as good as new and fast postage back will keep me coming back for many years - Thank you so much!
Deirdre Curtis from Chesterfield
Thank you for a super service, with great communication and a prompt turnaround time. My old pinking shears couldn't cut through a single piece of fabric before. Now, they slice readily through multiple layers :-D
I'm delighted! Many thanks!
William Eastcroft from Stirlingshire
Extremely fast service. Sent my chefs knife away to get repaired and sharpened on the Wednesday and received it back by the Saturday. The knife was as sharp as it was when it was brand new. Would highly recommend!
Lee Simpson from London
Scoured my pen knife completely trying to cut a metal tag off some shoes (thought it was plastic) - my knife couldn't cut butter. I was a bit apprehensive about sending it away to a sharpener but I decided to bite the bullet and go for it with Sharpening Service.
Came back sharp enough to slice strips of paper from a sheet without resistance! I am very happy with the result.
Christina Wood from Harwell, Oxon
Fabulous service! Friendly, efficient and hassle free. My kitchen knives are now a dream to use and better than new. Many thanks.
Susan Jones from Dulverton
A superb service from start to finish. I will be recommending to my friends without doubt.
Thank you very much
Mrs Millar from Lanarkshire
Fast, sharp, professional.
Ian Hall from Newcastle upon Tyne
I am shocked. I posted my two favourite knives on Wednesday I received a nice friendly email the following day saying the knives had been sharpened and were being returned in the post which I received on the Saturday morning. Knives were returned as sharp as new and the return packaging was better than I had used myself. I'm delighted with the service and I would recommend without reservation.
Peter Thorpe from Tyne and Wear
Thank you for the sharpening course
So having watched the You tube videos etc, what could be easier, simply buy a Tormek and that would be me set.
How wrong I was!
So what next?
Get some proffesional help.
Wow.... what a massive leap forward my skills and confidence took in such a short time. It would be fair to say that I have by-passed months of heartache trying to teach myself.
Not only did I learn so much I also now know what I don't know which will enable me to continue learning and improving my skills now that I am heading in the right direction.
Allen Davey from Surrey
Absolutely fantastic service and quality of work. I was kept informed all the time - though it was only a couple of days that I was without my chisels. When I opened the package this morning to find that my chisels were beautifully sharp with the finest, shiniest grinding/polishing that I have ever seen. Many more of my tools will be coming your way next week.
Podiatry Nippers - Excellent service at a very good price. I would highly recommended Sharpening Service.
Margaret Miller from Lanarkshire
Thank you Robin for a very quick turnaround service. My dressmaking scissors are now in the best condition for years. I will also get some more time out of my knife. Excellent service.
Debbie Maher from Kingsbridge
Sent 3 farrier knives to be sharpened, brilliant job done, amazingly quick turn around and the knives came back professionally boxed up and by Royal mail tracked delivery. Will be using again and recommending on the barehoof forums and sites. Many thanks
Shirley Pearce from Reading
I had damaged my precious Kai shears which I use to cut 5mm neoprene. This is notoriously difficult to cut neatly with shears, even when perfectly sharp. Having never used Sharpening Service before, I was apprehensive, but I sent a sample of neoprene with the shears and held my breath. They returned as good as new in very quick time and I am delighted with the service.
Fantastic service! My scissors and blades have never been sharpened so well in 7 years of dog grooming. Easy transaction and extremely fast turnaround. Highly recommend!
Allan Judge from Liverpool
Robin has been very helpful in telling me exactly how I need to get these scissors sent off (i'm useless with things like this). I sent 2 pairs of Hairdressing scissors off Tuesday and they were back with me this morning.
After me ruining them trying to cut corners by 'sharpening' them with a handheld kitchen knife sharpener, i'm thrilled they've come back to me like new.
Thank you, Robin. Hope to deal with you again.
Sean Pitt from Cheshire
My knives were received and repaired same day, returned the next. Very pleased with results considering I had made a complete mess of sharpening them myself. Even my paring knife which I thought was beyond hope. Thanks for the good service
Julia Donnelly from Derbyshire
Great service - all my knives returned before I really missed them - and now I just have to remember to watch my fingers. Thank-you.
Stacey Todd from Kilmarnock
Excellent service on sharpening and knife tip repair its like I have a new knife! Thanks
Nick Allen from York
Very good, prompt service. My Opinel carving knife lost 5mm off its tip, and it's been re-ground perfectly. Very satisfied.
Tony Wilde from Sutton in Ashfield
Incredibly fast service, very happy with my newly razor sharp global knives!
Hairy Hounds from Clynderwen, Pembrokeshire
I have had a lot of work done by Robin and his staff, it's all been 1st class every time and the turn around time means so much as I have been to a number of people who do sharpening and there turn around time has not been good, keep up the good work !!!
Thank you from all at Hairy Hounds
Guy Scott from Camberwell
Brilliant, friendly service. Knives are like new and very fast turn-around. Highly recommended!
Steve Brown from Southall
Brilliant service at a great price. Thanks!
Richard Poskitt from Chichester
I thank you for such a great service. My knives came back perfect. I am too pleased. Well done guys, will be using you again...happy cooking!
Rita Svarca from Liverpool
Thank you so much for the great service. Very fast and well done. Will use your help again.
Andy Wills from Orpington
Posted my Global knives for sharpening on Monday received them back today and they are sharper than new, a brilliant service and will definately use this company again
Harry Rabbie from London
I have just completed the training course and was very impressed with not only the structure of the course, but also the knowledge that Robin has and the fact that he is so willing to pass on tips that he has that would take me years to acquire. I only hope I can be half as good as he is !!
John Stevenson from Hampshire
Excellent service and superb result. Communication throughout so I knew where the items were and at what stage of work they were at. The sharpened podiatry nippers were returned sharper than when they were first procured. Items sent on Monday and were back with me first thing on Thursday.
Grainne Scannell from Suffolk.
The service provided by 'Sharpknives' was excellent. It could not be made simpler, request online, post and you will receive back within 2 days. Any questions they are a QUICK phone call away. I will be recommending.
Oliver Critchley from North Yorkshire
I posted my Tojiro DP knife on Monday and on Friday it arrived back razor sharp, with email status updates all the way. Absolutely outstanding - thank you!
Paul Benny from Cheshire
Two cook's knives returned to as-new sharpness. Delivered back by return. If only I had this service locally!
Jim Wager from Buckinghamshire
I had a very expensive pair of German talior's shears that I bought 30 years ago and which had got very blunt. They came back sharper than new, and posted back very quickly, in a neat box. I am wondering whether to try them with my Disston , Tyzack, Spear & Jackson etc handsaws. There is hardly anyone left these days who understands how to set a saw according to what it is going to be used for.
Sirene Cleife from Warminster
Speedy and efficient service, with a quick turnaround so my nippers were only out of action for a few working days. I was kept informed every step of the way and received emails to confirm when my payment was received, when my nippers had arrived and again when they had been sharpened and dispatched. Would highly recommend this service.
Aaron Simmons from Worthing
Fantastic service, very fast and a perfectly repaired knife!
After finding this company on the internet, I decided to give them a go with a repair to one of my Global knives. I sent the Knife on Wednesday, and received it back on Saturday. Excellent service & was kept informed along the way. Can't recommend them enough, I will use them again if I need too. Many Thanks
Marc Hagland from Stevenage
Amazing service. 3 global knives were repaired, sharpened and dispatched back to me within 24 hours of sharp knives receiving them. Great service. Would highly recommend.
Gerard Doran from Stroud
Super sharpening of my precious Citadel (Cambodian) lock knife.
Great service too. I will be using again in the near future...
Alan Winstanley from Lincolnshire
Rejuvinated a Cookworks electric food slicer blade and it cuts like new again! Super-fast turnaround, I received fabulous service at every stage, strongly recommended.
Liz Harris from Wooburn
I posted my knife on the Monday, and it was back in the kitchen on the Thursday, having been sharpened and repaired.
But the best bit was the regular progress updates. It's unusual to find a company that does it's job so well AND embraces technology so efficiently to stay in touch. Highly recommended. Thank you.
Sylvia Roberts from Birmingham
Thank you so much!
I am so pleased with the service I received from start to finish its been so fast, efficient and professional.
My hairdressing scissors came back to me like a brand new pair!
I will definitely be recommending you and will no doubt use your services again.
Kelly Lazenby from Cleveland
Excellent services, brilliant communication! And very fast with the sharpening of my scissors, will definatly use again and reccomend to others
Tim Mather from Bishops Stortford
What an amazing service !!
Like others on here I had a set of Global knives that had seen better days. Looked good but struggled to cut through tomatoes.
Ordered online on Sunday - sent Monday - they were back by Wednesday.
The knives are now absolutely perfect.
Thank you so much - I'm now looking round the house to see if theres anything else I need to sharpen!!
Mal Pritchard from Warrington
First time ive ever let anyone sharpen a knife of mine, but its worth every penny.
Ellie Barnes from Northamptonshire
Yet again I was incredibly impressed with the quality of the work, communication and the speed in which everything was completed. Sharp Knives received my 6 sets of clipper blades and a knife on Thursday and I received confirmation that they were on their way back to me on the Friday. Incredibly quick and reliable. Many thanks!
John Barker from Nottingham
Fantastic service, knives sent by Royal Mail Monday, received back Thursday morning, all sharp and safely packed. Was contacted as soon as I paid online and when the knives were being posted back.
If only other companies were as efficient.
Helen Borman from Rugby
Excellent service, I will be able to slice the roast now rather than hack at it, brilliant job. Many thanks
Mrs Percival from Tunbridge Wells
Brilliant Service. Knives sharpened to perfection. Sent one day and back the next. Highly recommend Robin Bailey
Geoff Purves from Brighton
Wow!! That was bloody quick. I posted on a Friday afternoon, Sharpknives sent me an email on Monday when it arrived, i received my blade back on Wed morning. I am very impressed.
It arrived in a well protected box and the blade is like new.
Sue Jonas from Bristol
Thanks for a brilliant service - speedy return greatly appreciated.
Michele Benton from Bristol
Would like to say how very efficient and easy this company is. My clipper blades were returned the next day.
Heather Bonham from Portishead, North Somerset
Brilliant service. Posted Thursday and received back on Saturday. My dressmaking shears are like new. Thank you.
This is the third time we have used Sharpknives services and we continue using them because they provide a professional service and the turnaround is so fast.
Just need to make sure I have all my fingers still attached after I've used them.
Great value for money, great quality and brilliant service.
Michelle Bruiners from Kent
Many thanks for an unbelievably fast service. Not only did my dog grooming scissors arrive back beautifully packaged, but they seem to be sharper than when I bought them new.
Shall definitely use your company again and recommend you.
Matas Vaitkevicius from Basingstoke, Hampshire
I have used sharpknives.co.uk to sharpen my Kai Shun knife. It was done fast at very reasonable price and well packed when shipping back. Before sharpening I had damaged tip of the knife and they fixed it. True professionals and pleasure to deal with.
Neil Bishop from Crowthorne
My nail clippers had been unusable for some time, now they are back in use! The side-cutters, which you were not sure you could sharpen, are now perfect once again. And you even returned a fiver from the £10 note I sent (as side-cutters were not on your website list of items you could sharpen). Many thanks!
Helena Simmonds from York
This is a great service. I was a little apprehensive about sending my old pinking shears off in the post, but couldn't find anyone to sharpen them locally. I posted them on Tuesday (regular 1st class, £3.30) and they were back, lovely and sharp, on Thursday. Another happy customer!
Keith Owen from Gillingham, Kent
Fab service. Kept up to speed throughout the whole process. Thankyou
Tim Evans from Kings Heath, Birmingham
I sent my very blunt knives on Thursday afternoon. My very sharp knives came back to me on Monday morning. Amazing service !
Sheena Florey from Swindon
Excellent service and very fast. My scissors were back having been repaired within a couple of days of sending. Thank you!
Ellie Barnes from Brackley
Absolutely excellent service - incredibly fast and kept me informed at every step of the process. Reliable, friendly and fantastic quality of work. Would highly recommend. I sent three sets of clipper blades and knife on a Friday and they're back with me by the following Tuesday. Thanks guys!
Lindzi Trent from Bath
Great service, very efficient. Clipper blades sharpened and returned in the post the same day it was received. Would definitely use again and recommend.
Georgina Bailey-Keohane from Driffield, East Yorkshire
This is second time I have used SharpKnives, and yet again - I am delighted! I sent a very sad and rusty gardening knife, that was in need of more than sharpening. I was a bit pessimistic about the Knife's future as it was in such poor condition. I am so pleased and chuffed to pieces, that once more SharpKnives have excelled themselves.
The knife has been returned so quickly and has a new lease of life. The blade is sharper and better than it was when new. Plus they so kindly have cleaned and tidied the wooden handle so it looks so much better.
Thank so so much.
Christian Voigt from Richmond
We had six kitchen knives sharpened. The service was very quick and excellent quality.
Sue Doubell from Mirfield West Yorkshire
Having found that locally no one would touch my left handed pinking shears, I took a chance and I am delighted to say they were back in a day and cut as good as new, since I've had them for 30 plus years I didn't know if they could be saved! Needless to say I'm now sending my dressmaking scissors as they could do with an overall too! It is clear the people who did the sharpening on my pinking shears know what they are doing! with many thanks
Tom Mortimer from Cambridge
My knives are like new. Very happy with the fast service and reasonable prices. Will definitely use again. Thanks!
David Edwards from Peterborough
Just got my chisels and plane blades back today through the post. The chisels belonged to my wife's grandfather and the planes to my father. I don't think any of them had been sharpened for some time, and some of the chisel blades were in poor condition. I have to say I'm really impressed by the finish that has been achieved on all the blades. If you ever want a definition of a mirror-finish just look at my blades! Also, the turnaround was much quicker that I had expected. All in all, very good service and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
Michael Cassidy from Sleaford, Lincs
Received my knives back this morning.
Wonderful quick service, and how nice to slice a fresh picked tomato with such ease.
Pity I did not find you some years ago!
Would recommend you to anyone wanting a really sharp knife out of their old good quality knife.
Adrian Thirkill from Northampton
My knives are very important to me for both fishing and hunting a razor edge is critical. Once I had sent them away it was all great communication from Robin and they were done and returned the very next day. Razor sharp ! Brilliant
Very pleased with the speed and quality of the sharpening, chisels are exceptionally sharp. I will definitely be sending my other set of chisels shortly and recommend to others.
David Elliott from Malton, North Yorkshire
Fantastic. Sent my chisels off on Wednesday lunch and got them back in the post Friday morning 9am. The chisels must be 40 years old and not properly sharpened for 20+ years, but now they are. Can't wait to use them. Absolutely brilliant service, thank you very much.
Charles Marsh from Farncombe
Very efficient service, kept us well informed about what was going on and turned our order around quickly.
Derek Pepper from Burnley
Superb service posted my chisels on Saturday came back on Tuesday looking like new and sharp as razor blades. Never been able to get them this sharp myself, no hesitation recommending - use them!!!
Dave Griffin from Witney
Blades so sharp they deserve a cameo part in Game of Thrones! Great service as usual Robin; Many thanks Griffo.
Stephanie Clements from Farnham, Surrey
brilliant service - sent Friday, received Tuesday! Old knife, carbon steel, broken tip, restored like new and other knives/scissors brilliant. Many thanks - second time I've used you!
Alex Quinn from Stratford-Upon-Avon
Absolutely brilliant service. Knives sharpened to an excellent finish, work completed quickly and returned safely. Will undoubtedly use Sharpknives again!
Jeff Wilkinson from Kingsnympton, Devon
Third time I've used Sharpknives. Returned within three days - perfect!
Gary Quartley from Dartford
I received my knives this morning after sending them three days ago! I am absolutely delighted with the service and the knives. I will certainly use your service again and recommend you to all my friends. Thank you.
Grant Fullerton from the Shetland Islands
Fast, first class service. Easy to use website. Knives worked with on day of arrival and posted back asap. Would highly recommend using sharpknives. I certainly will be.
Simon MacFarlane from Sutton Coldfield
I received my ‘Kukri’ knife back from you today, and many many thanks for the incredibly fast service and the finish on the blade is fantastic, it now cuts hair anywhere on the blade at the slightest touch!
I will defiantly be using your services again!
May Showell from Bromley
Thank you, Robin, for my two pairs of dressmaking scissors received back so promptly. I'm delighted with your swift service and the scissors are now restored to their former usefulness. I had bought new ones which were not so good, and useless for cutting silk, so it's great to have back these old friends which were the best I ever had, now with superb cutting blades.
I would just like to thank Robin for two valuable days at his training course for knives, scissors and clippers. We covered a lot of material both theoretical but for the most part hands-on. Robin is an excellent teacher with a passion for both his craft and his students. I highly recommend this course for both newbies and more skilled knife sharpeners.
Alice Keal from Leicestershire
I bought a pair of second hand tailoring shears that could barely cut cardboard. They were in bad shape and I was losing hope that they were a good purchase. I sent them off to sharp knives on Wednesday and by Friday I had a magnificent pair of shears that will even cut satin fabric.
Very happy customer!
Brian Martin from Sandhurst
i sent my knife lunch time Thursday, they received it Friday, fixed it, sharpened it and I got it back Saturday.... That is fast. My Japanese knife was badly damaged and as sharp as a butter knife, when I got it back it was as good as new, thank you very much.
Maria Russo from Cheltenham
I sent three pairs of various sewing sissors to Sharp knives and have had nothing but the best service from them. My scissors have all come back very smooth and razor sharp, with fantastic communication all the way through. Same day service as well, so scissors were sent, sharpened and returned, all in 2 days. Couldn't ask for more. Thank you so much.
Chris Clarke from Chippenham
Very good quick service, a fast turnaround and job well done.
Georgina Bailey-Keohane from Driffield, East Yorkshire
This is the first time I have used Sharpknives. I have used another on line service in the past, and there is no comparison between the two. Sharpknives excels on every level. The process on line to complete your order/request is so easy and simple. The actual speed of service was very impressive. My knives were sent and returned within days. The quality of workmanship of my two kitchen knives that were sharpened was first class. They are a dream to use again. The packaging in which they were returned was impeccable, as was the way I was kept up to date of the knives movements by e mail. I cannot recommend Sharpknives enough and will definitely use again, especially as I think it was very reasonably priced. The only comment I would make is the site does highlight the rules and regs of the Post Office in sending knives through the post which was very helpful and useful. It might be worth printing these off and taking with you when you go to post your knives as my local Post Office got all nervous and had to phone Head Office to check as they were uneasy just accepting my word.
Stephen Butcher from Bedford
I am, again, amazed at your professional services from receipt of order, to acceptance of delivery, through the sharpening service, notification dispatch and delighted in the end product, namely razor shark knifes. You recently sharpened my Tojiro Senkou knifes and they are "far better" than they were when I first took delivery of them some 18 months ago.
Many thanks for your services to date, another set of knifes and a pair of scissors will be on its way to you next week.
John Edmond from Milford Haven
Sent a damaged flat ground set of mitre guillotine blades on Thurs afternoon, got an e-mail on Fri morning, telling me that the blades had been received and the damaged one repaired, received back on Sat morning, what a superb job now they have been hollow ground as guillotine blades should be and is now working perfectly, will certainly be sending my knives and blades to Sharpknives again.
Jennifer Ewing from Bury St. Edmunds
I was nervous to send my joewell hairdressing shears off to be sharpened, because they are very expensive. I'm from the states, so sending your shears to someone to be sharpened isn't the norm. I'm used to giving them to hand delivering them to a company to be sharpened.
So, I decided I'd send them to Sharpknives, after reading very positive reviews, and because they specialize in Joewell shears.
I couldn't be happier with the service. Everything was preformed at a very quick and timely fashion. I was updated along the way, and sent an email that my shears where on their way back to me. It took less than 48 hours.
My shears came back nice and sharp :) Very very happy with this company, and I highly recommend.
Maggie Cameron from Bristol
This was the first time I've used Sharpknives and I will definatly use them again. I paid on line and posted the clipper blades the next morning (Mon) I received email confirming order and payment. The next day I was emailed again saying the clipper blades had been received, sharpened and would be dispatched later that day. I received them back, cleaned and very sharp on the Weds, fantastic service, thank you.
Jayne Rippon from Bristol
Great service! I sent my hairdressing scissors away to be sharpened, good communication via e-mails from this company throughout, my scissors were sharpened and posted back on the same day! great job done, would definitely recommend.
Adrian from Wiltshire
After a brief search online by my partner we found Robin who as not far me I visited on a Sunday. I took along my global collection and a couple of axes.
To say that Robin is a font of knowledge is an understatement. My tools were treated with respect and handed back to me better than when new.
Sharper than sharp and a pleasure to use once again. Advice was forthcoming on keeping them that way. I was on my way in less than an hour.
Many thanks and I’d certainly recommend to anyone.
Sue Chant from Hitchen
I found this sharpening site on line and decided to send my dress making scissors to them. I sent them on Wednesday, received an e-mail the next day to inform me that they had arrived. The scissors were returned to me on Saturday, very well packaged, and I am extremely pleased with the result. They are a very old pair, and belonged to my late mother in law ( who was a court dress maker in London). I would highly recommend this sharpening service.
Jon North from Guildford
Posted my five Global knives off to be sharpened on Tuesday, had them back on Thursday.
All returned to their original perfect condition and sent back in secure packaging.
I can't recommend Robin enough. I won't be using anyone else.
Richard Anders from Bournemouth
Was a little concerned sending my expensive Japanese knifes. Very quick turn around, fixed the tip of one knife and you would not know. All came back very quickly and very sharp so very happy
Rolf Lawson from Craigavon, Armagh
Thought I would get my knives sharpened professionally and sent four of them to Sharpknives by Royal Mail as a trial. They arrived back in Northern Ireland within 24 hours and they are fantastically sharp. Really very pleased with the result and the fantastic customer service. I will certainly use them again and would highly recommend you try for yourselves.
Neil Egan-Ronayne From Cambridge
The enquiry was made on Thursday evening and all my questions were duly answered. The knives shipped on Friday and were back on my magnetic holder by Tuesday afternoon; clean, sharp and ready for slicing and dicing! I have also kept the box and packaging for the next time they need bringing back to life (which is very handy) - thank you for exceeding my expectations, I will doubtless be sending them to you again in the future
Mark Wymer from Oxfordshire
Knives just arrived back with us - amazing!
We knew they were blunt, but clearly couldn't remember how sharp knives can be - what a difference!
I've spent the last hour slicing and cutting every bit of food I could find... fruit, vegetables, chicken, steak, beef, lamb, whatever! I don't menu plan (though I always mean too!), but do know that over the next week everything we eat is going to consist of very finely chopped and sliced ingredients!
Hope you're well, and thanks!
Benjamin Keedwell from Winscombe
The service provided is excellent. I sent my Wusthof on a Friday and it was returned the following Tuesday razor sharp. I have given it a test run today cutting up vegetables for a chasseur. Thank you.
Margaret Deans from Renfrewshire
Great service, sent sharpened and return all within 4 days, and this was over the festive season. If you have any reservations about sending anything to be sharpened please put any doubts aside and do it, my knives were new but blunt, now they are great, would highly recommend this company
Matthew Hudson from Epsom
Brilliant service, the only knife service you need.
Michael O'Donovan from Ireland
The training course will save you so much time and money. Robin has been there and bought the teeshirt (and a helluva lot of equipment) and knows the business inside out. He's generous with his experience, and holds nothing back. Can't recommend it enough.
Sue Bishop from Clacton on Sea
Absolutely superb service. My antique needlework scissors are fantastic. Superfast service. Returned within 2 days. Fantastic thank you
Alan Turner from Solihull
5 Global Knives in varying states of damage, one Google search from the bin.
All 5 re-shaped, sharpened, with a 2 day turnaround. Very happy with service and quality, already recommended to a friend.
Maxwell Spiers from London
The oboe shaper blades I sent needed to be repaired as well as sharpened. They arrived by return of post in better condition than they were when new and at very reasonable cost. Consequently I've recommended the same service to all my colleagues.
Carl Merrick from London
I sent 5 global knives to be sharpened. All damaged by dishwasher use. They were returned, very sharp and repaired, in a few days and for a very reasonable cost.
Marjorie Louth from York
I was very pleased with the service I received. My 2 pairs of scissors were sharpened and returned to me very promptly, and both pairs work beautifully. ( I had thought that the dressmaking scissors could not be sharpened because the blades had been damaged.)
Rebecca Tranckle from Sandhurst
Thanks for the super job you did repairing my Wusthof knife. I was so upset when the tip broke off and I had been told by the local iron mongers that it couldn't be fixed. I did actually buy a replacement knife before I came across your website and I really think the repair job you did is better than my new knife. Delighted thank you!
Jane Ward from Manchester
I am delighted with my Global knife repair and sharpen. The service was very quick, even over new year. I will definitely send my knives here again. Thank you
Eddi Paul from Cambridge
Thank you very much. Knives as good as new which i didn't think would be possible given the state of the tip of one. Would highly recommend.
Paul Meads from Redditch
I sent 2 very old Global knives as a last ditch effort as I couldn't get them sharp. They were returned a few days later as good as new. I was kept informed of process all the way through. Superb thoroughly recommended.
David Ellis from Christchurch
Excellent service and communications.The speed of turnaround was amazing
Kelli Griffis from Angus
Very happy with the service! Great job and super fast - Knives were posted from Scotland on a Tuesday afternoon (in the holiday season too!) and arrived back first thing Saturday morning.
Keith Powell from Carmarthen
Two day turn-around, great service. The knives are really sharp and I have already cut my thumb!
Ann Knowles from Manchester
Good, fast service, much appreciated. Very old shears now back in business!
Matthew Preece from Cambridgeshire
Great work - many thanks. My knives were long overdue a sharpen and are now as good as the day I purchased them. Will certainly use this service again.
Geoff Wright from Welwyn Garden City
The usual excellent service, quick return, beautifully sharpened knives and great customer communication. I also had my trusty pocket knife sharpened this time which has been give a complete new lease of life. Thoroughly recommended all round.
Clive Wraight from Reading
Great service. Unbelievably fast turn around. Thank you very much.
Jane Erskine from Coventry
Received my scissors back, very good quick service, my scissors are lethally sharp, I am extremely pleased with the results, the only niggle I have and it is me being picky, my scissors were returned to me with a fair few finger prints on them and I assume it was honing paste on the blades, I also had to oil them, this is not a problem and I would deffo use this service again, it just would have been nice not to have to do this, please don't be offended.
Response :- Thanks for the comments Jane, and I'm sorry about the finger marks.
We always apply scissor oil, but the one we use dries leaving a waxy coating which is not that obvious, and will also be what held the finger marks I'm afraid.
We use a dry lubricant as it doesn't attract and hold hair debris as much as the normal wet mineral oil.
Kate Lim from Reading
Excellent service and repair. Professional and prompt e-mail updates on the logistics and progress of the order. I wholeheartedly recommend sharpknives.
Martin Lees from Halesowen
Fantastic service and very quick. Posted knives on Thursday pm had confirmation e-mail Friday 2pm , knives delivered back to me Sat am. Highly recommended will use again(two knives with big chunks missing from the blade repaired)
Stephen Way from Hampshire
Second time I've used your excellent service .. The turn around time is unbelievable and never had my knives so sharpe.. Great Service well Done..
Janie from Winchester
Excellent service. The knives were back to me within 5 days including a weekend. My global knives have come back extremely sharp, including the serrated ones which is exactly what I wanted. I am recommending this service to friends.
Issi Hodges from Chipping Sodbury
I sent off my saddler's splitting machine blade to be sharpened as it was second hand and had been abused by the previous owner. What a difference! I was able to split wide pieces of panel hide as well as 4 1/2" wide bridle leather with no trouble whatsoever. Thoroughly pleased with the result and it was quick too. I posted the blades off on a Thursday and received them back the Saturday after. There is just one problem, having sharp knives is very addictive!
Coleen Willoughby from Glasgow
I am exceptionally pleased with the service I received from Sharp Knives : The Knife, Scissor and Clipper Blade Service. I entrusted my German Kitchen Knife set to Sharp Knives and I'm so glad I did. I've never had the knives sharpened and they had become dull. I think the knives are even sharper now than when I got them. The service was so easy to use and I'm particularly happy that for less than £10 I have a knife set which is as good (if not better) than new. In addition to being high quality and fantastic value, Sharp Knives is fast. My knives were sharpened and posted the day they were received. I could not be more delighted! I'll definitely use them again and I HIGHLY recommend them.
Sandra King from West Coker, Somerset
First sent my tailoring scissors and snips, wonderful job done and then sent overlocker blades, another super sharp job, I highly recommend this company.
Nige Harness from Selattyn in Shropshire
Superb service - my Tojiro knife arrived, was repaired, sharpened and despatched back to me on the same day! The repair is invisible (I'd taken a chunk out of the edge with a lamb bone). I'd recommend this guy to anyone - in fact I already have.
Richard Attwood from Southampton
Thanks what incredible service,and a stunning sharp perfect pair of scissors returned,with astonishing speed,
Mark Reay from South Shields

Superb service! Knives sharpened and nicks removed perfectly, and all within 48 hours from posting to receiving them back at home! I have no hesitation in recommending this fast and professional service.
Nigel Bartlett from Horbury, West Yorkshire
I'd just like to say that the service was excellent, knives sharpened razor sharp and returned within 3 days. I would highly recommend.
Steve Wortley from Romford
I just wanted to say thank you for the incredibly speedy service. I left the knife at your workshop on Thursday and it arrived in Romford the next morning! Thanks again for an in-expensive, excellent and efficient service
John Happs from South Ayrshire
Superb service! Posted knives on Monday. Tuesday received e-mail saying they had arrived, had been sharpened and were being sent back. Wednesday knives arrived back - razor sharp. Very reasonably priced. Cost total of £6.40 for three Global knives. Of course, postage adds on a fair bit but that can't be helped. Would definitely use this service again.
Sandra King from West Coker
Many thanks for the prompt return of my scissors, they are back to new and super sharp and snippy.
Kay Taylor from Bristol
Fab service as always, Thanks Robin!
Roma Liddiard from Swindon

Sandra Kyle from Edinburgh
Excellent service with immediate turnaround. I send all my kitchen knives, & have been doing so for years. Also they stay sharp for ages.
Thank you Robin!
I sent my knives in for sharpening and received them back, duly sharpened, before I had had time to notice they had gone. Excellent service which I will have no hesitation to recommend to others.
Griff from Wivenhoe
Fantastic work repairing my damaged ceramic knife. Ultra-fast turnaround - thank you!

As always, such a splendid service that is given by Robin. I posted my knives midday on Monday and lo and behold by Wednesday morning they were returned - razor sharp. Such an excellent business, where service is paramount.
Lucy Loughlin from London
My completely blunt knives are now razor sharp - an extremely easy and professional service from Robin. Highly recommend.
Zebi Risidi from Bradford
Outstanding and a great result!, Our knives are like new!! Would recommend to anyone!! Thank you for the fast and excellent service!
Sarah Wallis from Londonderry
I would not hesitate to recommend Robin's knife sharpening services. The website was easy to use and ordering and paying no problem at all. I followed the instructions given to pack up the knives to send them via Royal Mail and they got there no problem. I was really impressed with the speed with which the knives were sharpened and returned and Robin's email to update on progress was appreciated. I am now in receipt of fabulously sharp kitchen knives and have now retired the kitchen scissors which I had relied on to cut anything mildly challenging! Thank you Robin, I will be back!
Tim Irving from Suffolk
Thanks for repairing my pen knife. An excellent job and very fast turnaround.

A brilliant job! Even though my precious dressmaking scissors were gone for only three days, Robin kept me updated the whole time - I'd nothing to worry about at all. Great communication and really sharp scissors. Thank you.
Chris Keenan from Glasgow
Just wanted to leave a short note to say thanks to the team at KSCBSS as I have received my knives back and you have done a good job.
It was always easy to get my knives sharpened when I was in the chef trade but not so easy now I have left. Sent my knives on Sunday and got them back on Thursday.
I have spent a lot of money on my knives over the years and was concerned to send them away but I shouldn't have been.
Pete Smith from Bournemouth
Fantastic service, 5 day turn around, including a weekend.
All four knives sharpened as if they were brand new. Definitely use the service again
Paul Hughes from Wigan
Robin's service is second to none - I sent a Kai Shun chef's knife with a broken tip on Monday afternoon, and received the knife back first thing Wednesday morning, not only razor sharp but with absolutely no evidence of a broken tip whatsoever - pure magic!
I cannot recommend this service highly enough - you won't be sorry.
Mr Brian Amos from Daventry
Well pleased can't remember the chisels ever being this sharp still had them for 30yrs so if they last another 30 i'll be happy. Excellent service will recommend to all my friends.
Absolutely thrilled with the results of the repair of my beloved Shun knife. Great value for such a professional service. Not only that, but the knives were back with me within 48 hours. Thank you so much. - Kirsty Wright (raw food chef)
Nicki Bennett from Stafford
Amazing service! Great communication all the way from order to return. Sent knives and they were repaired, sharpened and returned on the same day! My 4 global knives came back sharper than I think they were originally. Absolutely thrilled and cannot recommend service enough! Thanks!

Sent 2 very blunt kitchen knives, received back 2 razor sharp kitchen knives within a week, without any fuss or problems. This is a great online service, highly recommended.
Andrea Hutchins from Worle

Lauren Hampson from Salisbury
Thank you so much Robin for such an amazing service, Knives arrived back today brilliantly sharp.
Jason Murtagh from Birmingham
Monday, posted off 4 Henckels chefs knives, an old Chinese style cleaver and a small garden penknife, which were beyond the help of my ceramic 'steel'. Returned Friday all with a razors edge!
I must admit I had been hesitant sending my 'precious' knives away after a previous bad experience with cheaper knives at a local 'grinders'!! Needless to say the professionalism by which these have been sharpened is Henckels factory like!
There will be no hesitation next time!! 10/10
Jason, West Midlands
Ben Gimber from Staines-Upon-Thames
Thanks Robin, my Global knives arrived back re-tipped and sharp as new in record time! Great service!
Steve Cockle from Bristol
As this was my first time posting my hairdressing scissors off to be sharpened I had quite a few questions. Rob was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. My scissors were perfectly packaged and returned in flawless working order.
Thank you for a great scissor sharpening experience.
Peter Cavanagh from Haywards Heath
Very impressed by both speed and quality of service. I given up on my broken Global knives but within 2 days of sending them they were back, mended, like new and a sharp as razors. I would not hesitate to recommend this company and extremely reasonable prices when you consider how much these knives cost
Stephanie Clements from Farnham, Surrey
Absolutely brilliant service. Restored kitchen knife and scissors and returned them the same day. thoroughly recommend - thank you.
Dave Hinton from Bewdley, Worcs
Brilliant Fast Service,.
Helen Sinclair from Harrow
Highly recommended. Caring in their work, I had two pairs of hairdressing scissors returned within 48hrs good and sharp. Thank you Robin
Hi Robin, many thanks for the quick turnaround, the scissors are brilliant. Great job. I do have some more to send, one of which is a brand new pair that won't cut at the tip. I've also got a couple of old 7FC clipper blades coming your way! Is it possible to sharpen Moser Arco blades?
Thanks again - its such a relief to find someone who can sharpen and reset the scissors properly, let alone return them so quickly. And local(ish) too! I will pass your cards on to some groomer friends with a recommendation.
Good service, efficient and reliable - thanks- stefano arturi
Mark Brighouse from Wrexham
I only posted global knives on Saturday and they were back with me by Tuesday. All fully sharpened, Fantastic service, great price and great communication, will definitely be using this company again. 🔪🔪👍👍
Ash Maude from Chesterfield
Big thanks, Robin is a really nice chap and happy to answer any questions. The course feels very one to one as there is only 3 people per course.
Small price to pay for a brilliant course and to add a real skill to my business. Brilliant guy Brilliant course. Would recommend this course to anybody who's looking to start or progress in a sharpening business.
Brian Warren from Cambridge
The outstanding service is even better! After receipt of delivery of the first set of knives I sent a further set on Thursday morning and I've just received them back (Saturday morning) all in tip top condition. Excellent!
Beryl Massey from Llandrindod Wells
I am amazed at how quickly my scissors were sharpened and returned to me, all within three days. The service Robin offers is second to none and I thank you Robin for restoring my mothers dressmaking scissors.
Steven Roberts from Penmaenmawr, Conwy
Sent my order Tuesday got it back Thursday morning, a truly remarkable speedy service.
I sent three hunting/field type knives and a gerber axe, the axe is now better than it was new and I love my knives again now they are sharp and repaired. Highly recommend this sharpening service by post. Many thanks!
Brian Warren from Cambridge
I cant praise the service I received enough - I posted knives (which were very blunt) last Friday. I had acknowledgment on Saturday of receipt and on Tuesday received back the knives in excellent condition!
I'm now sending more knives for sharpening tomorrow and I'm spreading the word to friends about this brilliant service.
Helen Phillips from Church Stretton, Shropshire
Wonderful service in every way! I had some vintage solid silver handled dinner knives that looked like the steel blades had been used on occasion as screwdrivers! All with nasty chips on the tips. Spoke to a large global co. who said can't be repaired! However, Robin said send them in no problem. WOW! they look magnificent. Thank you. Please add dinner knives to you list of services.
Jane Driver from Bridgewater
Fantastic service,my knives were repaired, beautifully sharpened and returned all in a three day turn round. Highly recommended

Kurt Conroy from Seven Oaks, Kent.
Knife was expertly repaired. Sent for repair on Monday returned like new on Wednesday.
Will use again. Thank you
Richard & Elizabeth
We both attended Robins two day course and found it really interesting and very informative. Elizabeth has her own dog grooming business and has always found it difficult to find a good sharpener for her scissors and clipper blades. Now we have the information and knowledge to practice until perfect and use Robins years of experience to help us with our new venture.
Thanks again for all the help.
Chris Joel from Worcestershire
Very quick service and very impressed with the service. I had a recurve blade which are a bit more difficult to sharpen but they did a great job.

Dorne Hardyman from Wimborne, Dorset.
Excellent prompt service
Gerry Wilson-MacCormack from Worcestershire
It is a very rare occasion when I struggle to find words to adequately express my satisfaction for a job well done.
Your customer service levels are second to none and the standard of workmanship is truly excellent.
Based on these observations and results your company can only progress UPWARDS! Good luck.
I was gutted when I dropped my Type 301 Porsche chefs knife and took a chunk out of the blade. It gets a lot of use and has been with me for a while and the replacement cost was substantial. Then after a short search I found Robin and discussed my problem. Having viewed the galleries I was hoping that mine could be saved. Saved it was, it is as good as new, repaired and sharpened and only away from me for 2 days. Fantastic service all round and I cannot recommend his work highly enough. Thanks again Robin.
Jack from Johnstone, Renfrewshire
Excellent service and value for money. sent tuesday afternoon and received back on thursday afternoon. will use again. cheers robin.

Frank Wellington from Harwich, Essex.
Her indoors is absolutely delighted with the two pairs of scissors you sharpened for her. They are now so easy two use and her hands no longer hurt when cutting out material. Thanks a lot.
Stephen Agnew County Antrim, Northern Ireland.
My knives were sent on Friday from N. Ireland and returned on Monday repaired and very sharp (sharp enough to take the hair off my arm!) Fantastic, friendly, speedy service. Very much recommended.
Edmund Stewart-Pearson from Crewkerne, Somerset
An absolutely great service, both knives were restored to their original state. Highly recommended!
Mike Derrick from Abergavenny, Monmouthshire
I posted two knives on Wednesday 5th February 2014 and the arrived back on Saturday 8th. Superb service!
Both knives needed heavy repair but they are now as good as new and razor-sharp.
I would definitely use this service again!
Sue Merrifield from London
Brilliant service! Posted the knives on Thursday afternoon and received them back on Saturday morning all repaired and razor sharp.
They had even put them in a packet that fitted through the letter box so no going to the post office to pick them up if we weren't in. Would highly recommend.
Donna Hadsley-Chaplin from South Godstone, Surrey.
What a fantastic, quick, reliable and cheap service. Used them before and will definitely use again.
Rachel Billington from Altrincham, Cheshire
What a great service! I posted two pairs of long defunct dressmaker scissors that had been misused over the years. I sent them on Monday afternoon (3rd February) and they were back this morning (Weds 5th February). They are very sharp, cut into fabric beautifully and will not be used for anything else now!
Thanks for a job really well done!
I have a load of global knives that will be next I think!
Nathan Saunders from Sevenoaks, Kent
Very happy customer. Knife arrived, same day sharpened and returned. Arrived back the next day. Excellent, will use again.
John Mayfield from Cambridgeshire
Superb service, Global knife sent with last post on Thursday and arrived back Saturday morning sharper than when it was first purchased. Communication via email is excellent and keeps you informed at all stages of the process. Great value for the money spent.
We will be using the talents of Robin and his team the next time we have a blade to sharpen and recommend that you do as well.
Jon Brough from Ferndown, Dorset.
We sent our Global knives to the Sharpening Service on Saturday and received an email on Monday to say that they'd been sharpened and were on their way back to us. We received them today (Tuesday) and they are extremely sharp.
A very speedy and professional service which is excellent value for money! This is our first time using this service. We will be using this service again and have no problem recommending it to anyone who needs their knives to be professionally sharpened.
Paul Hadley from Birmingham
Fast and friendly service. Highly recommended. 10/10
Hugh from Andover
A swift, efficient service. Our pitted knives have been renewed and now cut superbly, just like new. Excellent value for money.
John Price from Treorchy, Rhondda Cynon Taff
Was a little apprehensive about sending the most expensive knife I've ever owned for sharpening to a service I'd found on the internet.
No worries at all. The knife was returned extremely quickly and sharpened superbly. I was so impressed I've sent the rest of my knives to Robin for sharpening. They won't be going anywhere else !!
If you want exceptional customer service, a totally professional job done quickly and at an extremely reasonable price, this is the only place to go.
More than happy to recommend this service to anyone - easily the best I've found and by a long way.
Lorraine Glen from Glasgow.
Delighted to have - at last - found this website. Communication was good even before I sent my pinking shears.
Excellent service, returned straight away and have been able to use the scissors straight away.
Ben from Leek, Staffordshire
good fast service and communication. Would use this service again.
Mike H from Thursby, Cumbria
Superb service as usual - my global knives returned by the next day razor sharp.
Wendy Bednall from Brockenhurst, Hampshire.
Just received knives back - lovely and sharp and such a professional and prompt service often rare these days.
Well Done and thankyou

Great service. Very speedy and very sharp. Thank you.
Sean froo Yoxall, Staffordshire
I sent 3 Tojiros and 7 Wusthofs for sharpening and repairs.
Robin turned them around within the day and posted them straight back.
First class service, highly recommended.
Geoff Kay from Warrington, Cheshire
What a stunning service . . . . lightning-fast turn around . . . . . blisteringly sharp edges once again on my Globals. Many thanks, Robin.
Stuart Mackintosh from Gassinoin in ITALY
Fantastic service. Knives were received, repaired and sharpened and posted back to me the same day! Robin was extremely helpful and fast to respond to any questions that I had. The knives arrived back super sharp, a real pleasure to use.
Owen from North Nibley, Gloucestershire
I tried out sharpknives with a couple of global knives I had which had lost their edge, and a couple of pocket knives which were never really sharp anyway. They came back with a very good edge, and very quickly.
I followed up with all the edged objects I could round up, because the service is such good value, very little hassle, and really quick turnarounds.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this service.
Aimee from Bow, London
I posted the knives on a Friday afternoon and they were back with me by Tuesday morning.
The blades are sharper now than they were when the knives were new.
All in all, magic!
Jonathan Upton from Cheriton, Llanmadoc
Very quick turnaround and the knives can now actually do the job for which they were intended!
Peter Meredith from Ashbooke, Sunderland.
Super Sharp knives, turned around in super quick time.
I couldn't be happier, and I'll be back in future.
Val Stevenson from London
REALLY fast service - excellent and good value.
Andy Fleming from Bourne, Lincs
A truly GREAT service.
My 8 year old Global knives are sharper than I ever knew them, with a new bevel angle running from tip to heel of the blade.
Sent to Robin on Tuesday and received back on Thursday. Excellent
Vic Lord from Goole, East Yorkshire
If there is a better service from any service provider I have yet to find it.
Thank you Robin
Anne Baker from Camden, London.
Fast and brilliant service. All our knives are so sharp and mended I just wish I had found The Sharpening Service earlier!
Cannot recommend highly enough!
Steve from Askam-in-Furness (Cumbria).
Very fast and very sharp.
Nice job repairing the tip on one as well.
Joan Campbell from Nottingham
I needed some knives for an overlock sewing machine sharpened, could find no one to do them, but you came to my rescue, thank you so much.
Robin Howe from Upwood, Cambridgeshire.
This is an amazing service.
Ten knives sent blunt on Monday, returned razor sharp on Wednesday.
Andrew Ockenden from Biggleswade, Beds
Sent the knives Monday. Email to say they were on their way back on Tuesday. Arrived Wednesday, with the work done like a true craftsman.
Many thanks indeed.
All the best
Louisa Barrett from Redditch, Worcestershire
I had 11 Global knives (inc. serrated) sharpened of which 2 required repair. They have come back as good as new.
My Oster dog clippers were also sent for repair. I was extremely impressed at the honesty with the repair, I received a phone call to say it was only the fuse that had blown. I was expecting and fully prepared to pay for a refurbished set.
I would happily recommend this service to friends and family and will certainly be using it next time my knives require sharpening.
Elaine Haworth from Lancashire
Good service knives very sharp and returned promptl
Michael Brownlie from South Lanarkshire
I was made redundant in May 2013 and didn't know what I was going to do, then I came across Robins sharpening course
I have always been wary of courses not coming up to my expectations in being all theory and lacking in the practical department, Robin has got the mix perfect, he explains everything in a way that's easy to understand and encourages you to get your hands on, which is the only way you can learn this skill.
After the first couple of hours I knew this was what I wanted to do, he has taken his wealth of knowledge in the sharpening business and compressed it into a two day course that gives you all the tips and tricks you need to get started.
Going on Robins course was one of the best decisions I've made.
Gary Mc Bride from Long Eaton, Notts.
I posted 5 knives on Thursday, and they were beyond blunt, the edge had completely gone from them.
I received them back on Saturday and they were like brand new, razor sharp and good to go.
Great service, highly recommended, many thanks.
Rachel Southern from Preston, Lancashire
Service as sharp as the repaired knife I received back!
Excellent in all respects and highly recommended many thanks.
Phil Hunt from Lewes, East Sussex.
Robin did a fantastic job in repairing and sharpening a hunting knife that had lost its point in such a bad break that I thought it might not be possible to repair at all. It came back with a newly-ground point and beautifully sharp. The service was extremely fast, as well: I sent the knife by post on Monday, got it back on Wednesday!
Karen Wright from Rotherfield
A fantastic service! It was very fast and efficient - and my ceramic knife is as good as new.
Paola Pugsley from Cambridge
I was very pleased with the service and the knives now are wonderful!!!
Mark Blight from Taunton
I sent a pair of global kitchen knives off on Monday. Received an email on Tuesday to say that knives had been received, repaired, sharpened and dispatched back to me. I got them on the Wednesday. You can't beat service like that!
One of the knives had some nasty little nicks in the blade which have been expertly repaired. The knives are sharper and better than when I bought them from new.
Do not hesitate to use Robin and team, they are brilliant. Thanks.
Nic Hammarling from Woodford Halse, Northants
Robin provides an absolutely brilliant service. I was really impressed with his communication (he let me know when the package had been received, as well as when he had dispatched it back). The turnaround was really fast (I sent the blades to Robin on Monday and received them back on Wednesday) and above all, the blades came back super-sharp!
Thanks Robin - I wouldn't go anywhere else now! Nic
Patrick Gleeson from Cardiff
Robin’s sharpening course is first class and great value for money.
He has a well-structured, hands-on approach, teaching skills, techniques and a wealth of tips drawn from years of experience. Robin showed us the quickest, most efficient ways to approach a wide range of jobs and which equipment gives the best results. He also told us where to get the best deals on supplies and equipment. We had plenty of time to practice and ask questions, and the support I’ve received since completing the course has also been brilliant as Robin continues to be a friendly source of advice and information. This was particularly useful during the start-up phase of my own operation, which is now a thriving little business. There’s not much that Robin doesn’t know about sharpening and attending this course was one of the best ideas I’ve had for a long while.
Mark Evans from Pontpridd
First class service, quick, reasonably priced and contacted me regarding my requirements.
Andrew Verrall from Sittingbourne, Kent
Many thanks for fast turn around service, sharpened and dispatched the same day.
My knives now have the best sharp edge ever, job well done. Thank You
Tracey Cawthrow from Market Harborough, Leicestershire
Fantastic service, sent knives Monday received sharpened and repaired Wednesday - excellent service
Bruce Dinning from Hornsea, East Yorkshire
Super fast service.
Posted knives on Monday,
Emailed Tuesday saying received, sharpened & returned,
Received knives back on Wednesday!
Would use again/recommend.
Peter Harris from Newton-le-Willows, Lancashire
Another couple of knives returned in a couple of days well honed. Great service and quality work. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thanks to Robin and the team.
Peter Harris from Newton-le-Willows, Lancashire
"Does what it says on the tin" Great communications and knives returned with a perfect edge in two days. Thank you very much, extremely impressed and sending you some more knives today!
Geoff Wilton from Westgate on Sea
An old, used and abused kitchen knife was returned to good useable condition by Robin. I am delighted by the result of his skill.
Andrew Sanderson from County Durham
I had five Global knives that needed sharpening. I followed the instructions on the website, posting the knives by next day guaranteed. The next day I received an e-mail to say that they had arrived. The following day the knives arrived back with me, sharpened to a clean cutting edge, making the knives perfect for kitchen cutting.
Ben Walker from County Durham
An excellent knife sharpening service!
Fantastic comms all the way through the process and super fast turnaround.
My Santoku is now razor sharp and my fingers now a little safer. Cheers
Glynn Cotter from Northants
Absolutely delighted, wusthof's now like new. Price, Service, Speed and updates on progress was 1st class
David T from Ascot
Over the years, I have attended many courses in many countries on many topics. Robin is in the top league as an excellent tutor with an obvious and current hands-on experience. A true professional who still 'walks the walk'. His combination of business common-sense with deep understanding of why certain things are done (or not done) is of special value and could not be gleaned from books or videos alone. Perhaps best of all, Robin is very patient with those of us who are clumsy - and goes at a pace that is individually tailored. Best money I have spent in a long time!
Riccardo Cumerlato from London
Awesome and extremely fast service. Just make sure you budget for some plasters as well :)
George Robinson from Nottingham
This is the third time I have used your sharpening services, all different knives I hasten to add.
I really don't know how you get such a fast turnaround, posted on Tuesday back to me on Friday all knives with beautifully precise, sharp and professional cutting edges. I have recommended you in the past and will continue so to do
Phil Curran from Teignmouth
I was amazed and very pleased to have my knife so quickly returned to me. You have put an excellant edge on my blade and I cannot recommend your service highly enough. Well done you.
Geoffrey Wautier froom Ipswich
Very satisfied with this quick, professional service!
Knives were sent on the Wednesday and arrived back on the Friday.
Follow up by email was very conscientious too.
Would undoubtedly recommend!
Jean Kelsall from Suffolk
Brilliant service. Very fast Posted from here on Thursday evening and back with me Saturday morning. Kept well informed. Highly recommended
Steve Holland from Glossop, Derbyshire.
Thanks Robin for truly inspirational customer service, and the quality of your workmanship is absolutely peerless.
I don't think my knives were this sharp even from new and I'm looking forward to using that newfound precision. Outstanding !
Sue Ashby from Bristol
What an amazing service! Sent my scissors off last post Thursday, got them back as good as new first thing Saturday morning, and they kept me in touch as to the status of my order - hardly necessary given the turnaround. Thanks very much
David Moss from Swindon
An absolutely first-class service.
A set of heavy dressmaking scissors arrived back in the post only 4 days after I had dispatched them, superbly sharpened and cleaned.
The service charge was very reasonable and communications during the process were also great.
I can thoroughly recommend SharpKnives.co.uk.
Neil Bentinck from Rawcliffe, York.
Have used this service a few times for its speed, efficiency ,and most importantly, the quality of the sharpenened blades.
I am a head chef and like most chefs have an obsessive collection of knives of all shapes and sizes from Germany, Japan, America etc. This service makes them as good as new.
I will continue to use this service for some time! Cheers, Neil Bentinck.
Paul Morgan from Ramsgate
Found this website on line after researching sharpening knives for many hours and buying all the recommended tools on the market, but none have put an edge on the blade like this Bloke did, communication was incredible, turn around time was so fast I was with out my 3 knives 1 day.
Will def use again and will be recommending.
Derrick Zieba from Chingford, London
Robin provides a truly fast and professional service.
My Kyocera Ceramic Knife was received, sharpened & posted out on the same day, all for an unbeatable price!
Full Marks for service.
Elliott Moran from Solihull
After someone butchered my Fallkniven PXL Workhorse on a home kitchen sharpener , Sharp knives managed to bring it back to to its former glory.. Wickedly sharp, in fact sharper than when i bought it..
Great service, will use again..
Pat Radburn from Ashford Middlesex
Posted my old trusty scissors to Robin on Saturday and received them back this morning (Wed). They are as good now as when I brought them for college 45 years ago.
I was kept informed on the progress from start to finish.
Excellent, I'd have no hesitation in recommending Robin to everyone.
Christine Gordon from Leicester
Thanks for the very quick service, posted on the monday, sharpened by Weds and returned by Friday, so sharp I cut myself (this is normal for me!).
Would recommend this service to anyone who wants a good sharp knife for cooking.
Julian Gall from Surrey
I have just had some thicknesser blades sharpened and I have to say the service is fantastic. The sort of thing you would expect from a friendly local store.
Excellent, prompt service. Dog clipper blades came back in good order within a few days,and that included a weekend.
Robin kept me informed about the progress of my order, and even gave some advice on prolonging the life of the blades. Will certainly be using Robin from now on.
Mrs P Norman
Prompt and efficient service to repair a damaged cutting edge and sharpened all my kitchen knives, thank you very much.
My hand shears had become blunt and rusty, the shearing machine had broken and an outside shearer could not be found for love nor money! Due to the weather we were way behind with shearing and starting to get sheep affected by maggots so time was of the essence - Robin offered truly incredible service, with the hand shears back to their former glory and posted back to me the very same day at a very reasonable price! Will definately use again, probably for an annual 'service' for all my shears.
I had taken a good part of the tip off my MAC fillet knife only months after buying it... After spending weeks seeing if MAC could do anything I sent it to these guys... Pretty much the day it was delivered it was fixed and re posted out to me, and the next day i receive my knife back in its former glory!!!!! I'm a professional chef of almost 20years and have never used a sharpening/knife fixing company before, but the service and communication alone is worth every penny.... The prices are extremely good, especially when you are looking at high end knives that are damaged.... Very happy Chef today!!!
Mark Joseph from Reading
Very impressed with the service. Very simple process and quick turnaround. My global knives are 13 yrs old but still came back incredibly sharp.
Gary Fryett from London
Excellent service, posted from London on Thursday, returned by Saturday morning. My knives are now sharp enough to shave the whiskers off a gnat!
Dave Griffin from Witney, Oxfordshire.
Rob's service, superb as usual! however my knife skills are no match for the refreshed blades, Elastoplast to the rescue again.....!
Seth Reeves from Egham in Surrey
I have 3 Global knives (including a Deba knife) that I had been "sharpening" myself for a long time.
I recently purchased a new Global Chefs knife and was amazed at how much sharper the factory blade was, when compared to the knives I had been sharpening myself.
That's when I decided to look for a professional sharpening service and found Robin at sharpknives.co.uk. I shipped my knives off on Friday and received them back on Tuesday! They are now RAZOR sharp, even sharper than my factory sharpened knife!
Service is first class, I really couldn't be happier. Highly recommended!
Amazing service. i will certainly use employ your services again. A++
Helen from Rugby
What an excellent service.
I sent my knives out on Thursday afternoon and had them back this morning (Saturday) It is good to have my favorite knives back very sharp and well packaged.
I would definitely recommend your service to anyone Robin.
Once again many thanks for a great service

Would thoroughly recommend The Knife Sharpening Service

Adrian Davies from Glamorgan
My name is Adrian and I have just set up Stay Sharp, I went on the course with Robin and was surprised how much i learnt in the 2 days. I would recommend it, if i did not do the course i could not see me starting up my business this quick and i put this to down to the knowledge that he has passed on to me. Currently offering a scissor sharpening service in south and west wales and looking forward to expanding in to knives. Thanks Robin.

Excellent service thanks, next time a commis uses my knives I know where to come! Definitely recommended
Paul from Kingston upon Thames
I had an old 'Global' knife in the drawer with a nasty chip. I thought it was unrepairable.
But these guys saved the day with a fantastic repair job. Like new at a tenth of the price of a new knife.
Karen Gold from Suffolk
Really excellent service, I posted my knives on Tuesday morning and they were back with me on Thursday. They are now perfectly sharp - it's like using new knives so I will be recommending this service without hesitation.
Peter Coen from Devon
I am a chef so my knifes usually cost quiet a bit of money so i was nervous about sending them away. But I am very glad I did, the whole process took less than 3 days and the results were amazing just like when it was brand new. The price is great value for money, I will definitly be using this service again
Zandra from Surrey
Should also have mentioned - the knives are razor sharp - brilliant as I have been using blunt knives for ever!
Zandra from Surrey
First class service! Sent, sharpened and returned in 4 days. Will certainly recommend.
Shaun from Berkshire
Had a ceramic knife sharpened, received it back within a few days and its as sharp as the day I bought it. I will use Robin again
I attended one of Robin's courses and it far exceeded my expectations. A lovely and genuine man who really wants others to get off to a great start and who will do all he can to assist in that. Patient, clear and very experienced. Could not ask for more.
Ali from Southampton
I am very impressed with the speed of service & customer service to boot! Robin has consistently received, sharpened & dispatched my blades on the same day which makes him a reliable choice for my Horsey Haircuts business! Highly recommend :)
Steve Heal from Cardiff
Excellent Service - restored my damaged Japanese carbon steel knife to its original new condition. Extremely prompt and cost effective service, would recommend to anyone who wants perfect sharp cutting edges.
Adam Pritchard from Bedford
I needed three very blunt Thiers-Issard stainless steel Sabatiers (one with a broken tip) repaired & sharpened. I posted them to Robin on Friday and got them back Tuesday morning! They are razor sharp and back in regular use.

Thank you for our scissors :) !!!!!
Everyones over the moon!
They all feel amazing! Will definitely be using you next time! xx
Scott Newby from Birmingham
Knives were returned the same day they were received. They've been brought back to life now!
Will definitely use again
Nick Breen from Bangor
I have just finished Robins training course and would like to say a bit about that. Having done it, I can now say that it was the best money spent in years. Robin will pass on years of sharpening experience, tips and advice. I want to say also, some of the information is not the sort you will find in books or forums, although there is that too, it's the sort of knowledge that can only be gained from experience. There was no marketing push behind any of this, Robin is an independant operator, unconnected to any manufacturers. If you are serious about sharpening, this is the course for you.
George Robinson from Nottingham
I sent four knives for sharpening on Mon am.
I got an email on Wed am to say my order had arrived and was receiving attention.
I got another email late on Wed pm to say my order was complete and would posted back on Thurs am.
In the Sat post I got my now razor sharp knives back. Less than one week and I was kept informed all along the way.
Great communication,workmanship and service throughout,thankyou.
Dom Z from London
Prompt service, impeccably sharp knife returned: cutting edge in every respect!
David Harvey from Derby
From one person who delivers service of a very high standard every day, it's easy for me to recognise equally good service. Thank you yet again for turning my order round in less than a day and returning my blade in as new condition!
Until the next time....
Keith Lanham from Birmingham
Posted on Friday, Recieved email from Robin on Sunday, saying my scissors had been recieved on Saturday, had already been sharpened and would be dispatched first class post on Tuesday, got home from work on Wednesday and there they were!
Tried them out and they now have a Surgical edge, REALLY sharp.
VERY, VERY, VERY highly recommended
Sioned Ross Jones from Conwy
Brilliant service will be using this service again,also will be telling my friends about you.
You were right about the onions by the way! Haven't shed a tear since I got my Sabatier knife back from you. Demonstrated your theory to my mother yesterday - she was well impressed!
Paul Malinowski from Peterborough
A very fast, reliable and professional service. Thank you.
Shirley Lamb from Livingston, West Lothian
Just wanted to say how thrilled I am to get my Sabatier knife back after cutting through a live cable and blowing a chunk out of it! I was more worried about the knife than I was for my life! The restored blade is super sharp again and the service was second to none.
Many, many thanks.
Colin Mew from Rhondda Cynon Taff
Don't think about it for too long - just send your knives to Robin. Great service. Robin did two great repairs for me and offered plenty of advice. Top notch, thanks!
Alex Youngwood from Birmingham
Fantastic service! on Monday morning i noticed that my favourite knife that i've been using for about 12 years had lost its tip. it was looking a bit battered in general and i almost bought a new one, but then stumbled across your website. less than 72 hours after noticing the damage i had my knife back as good as new, cuts like a dream and actually has a better profile at the tip than it did originally. couldn't have asked for better.
Bob Trevena from Melksham
Had my late father-in-law's Chinese cleaver "circa 1965" sharpened and repaired at Robin's workshop.
Great service in a friendly and clean environment. Thanks Robin, great job.
Geoff Wilton from Westgate on Sea, Kent.
The service I received could not have been bettered by anyone. My knife was returned retipped and in razor-sharp condition.
Robin will now be my first port of call for all sharpening requirements.
Rob Galpin from Bristol
Excellent fast service for hair clipper sharpening. Great combination of good old fashioned service with modern website/email communication!
What remarkable service. The turnaround times were spectacular and the communications second to none. The scissors actually cut which is the added bonus. Thank you so much. Will keep your details and use you again.
Doreen Jevons from Swindon
Absolutely first class service.
Sent second batch of knives for sharpening yesterday, Robin has already emailed to say they've been sharpened and are on their way back.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sharp Knives.
Nick Siragher from Cambridge
I was apprehensive about sending off knives we've had for over 30 years to an unknown person (to us) but need not have been.
I sent them on a Monday and they came back to us in the post on the Wednesday - just a couple of days and they are razor sharp.
We have others to do and will have no hesitation in sending them.
V. Ward from Oxfordshire
Fantastic service - wish I had done it before! The whole process took only a few days and I'm absolutely delighted with the results and am getting ready to send the rest of my knives for the same treatment - thank you!
Further to the last comments,I saw Robin working on some knives that arrived by post. He did the work there and then, to an extremely high standard, and repackaged and sent them back that same day. Also, two 'walk up' customers respectively brought in a pair of garden shears and a hardresser's scissors. Robin sorted them out there and then - as good as new at a very reasonable cost. A superb service.
I have just attended Robin's 2 day training. Absolutely superb all round. Loads of hands on practice - knives, scissors, chisels, shears, axes - you name it. But the best value is the wealth of information and experience that Robin is more than happy to pass to you - be ready to take lots of notes!
Cannot recommend highly enough.
Mike Hacker from Thursby, Cumbria
Difficult to find words to describe such as SUPERLATIVE service.
Sent my global knives pm Thursday received back Monday morning,repaired & surgically sharp.
A 5 star service would thoroughly recomend to anyone - no need to look anywhere else.
David Evans from Arnside, Cumbria.
Received by you Thursday
Email from you same day, scissors done
Well done, very impressed and good job by Royal Mail
Steve Godbold from Bristol.
Just attended a two day course with Robin. Brief introduction and demonstration with hands on practice from the word go. If you want to start your own business or just get loads of implements sharpened this course is ideal. Robin is undoubtably an expert and enjoys sharing his knowledge and experience, a rare thing these days. I highly recommend his sharpening and training services.....
Nick Wooller from Walton on Thames, Surrey
Without doubt the easiest and best Internet service I have used.
Knife returned in four days having had a large nick taken out the blade. On return it was impossible to see the repair and it was razor sharp to boot!
Ben Linton from London
Excellent. Wish I'd discovered this service sooner. Knives back incredibly quickly, and razor sharp. Will definitely become a repeat customer. Highly recommended!
Michael Warren from Dartford
Excellent service. Sent all my kitchen knives parcel post on Friday, had an email on Saturday to say parcel arrived and would be despatched Monday, arrived Wednesday morning. All wrapped and RAZOR sharp. All those years spent trying to sharpen with a steel wasted!!
Would highly recommend.
Well done and thank you.
Clive Wraight from Reading
Excellent service, fast and reliable. Good advice given too, thank you
Christine Gordon from Leicester
Just received my knife back after sharpening. Opened the package and immediately sliced through a potato, was like cutting through ice cream WOW! Everyone should send their knives here - recommended ++++
Simon Noble from Doncaster
Brilliant service, back within a couple of days. No hesitation about sending my Global knives and would definitely recommend. Excellent.
Joni Seaton from South Petherton
Great service - almost by return post and plenty of communications.
Margaret Ionta from Glasgow
AMAZING!! Love this service and will defos be using this again!!

Simon Phillips from Glamorgan
I bought a vegetable knife that had been used as a display and the blade was dull und the tip was broken off! I sent my knife to this repair and sharpening service, after 4 days my knife returned sharp and with a new tip just like brand new!
I am very happy and I will tell every body who has the same problem to use this service! Thank you
Michael Fowler from Sunderland
Just experienced fantastic customer service, sent knife away Sat 5th May and even with bank hol Monday got it back today 10th May.
Excellent repair will definitely recommend this service 200%.
Helen Arkwright from Aberdeenshire
Really pleased with the service Robin offers.
My Sabatier knives are like new and they must be 15 years old. Robin keeps you in touch with receipt and despatch of your knives and it is a really easy service to use.
Jill Goulder from Lewes
A model web-'booking' service - very easy to use - and extremely prompt servicing of my two pairs of scissors. Thank you!
Dave Clark from Morayshire
Outstanding service yet again.
Chris Lee from Cardiff
Incredibly sharp, plus I haven't had to sharpen the knife since using the service. Amazing - well worth the money.
Derek Brown from Salisbury
An excellent service.
My carving knives were sharpened and returned within 4 days of me posting them.
Esther Reid rom Devon
Outstanding professional service.
My ancient dressmaking scissors were made like new within a week! Highly recommended. Thank you.
Rae Merrin from Nottingham
Have just used my pinking shears for the first time since receiveing them back. Fab job, thanks!
Really quick service. Sent them Good Friday and received them back the following wednesday.
Considering it was a bank holiday I think that is great service.
Juliet Clarke from Bristol
Thanks Robin! you did a great job on my Wusthof and Globals. Very pleased indeed. Would definitely use you again.
Tracey Wibberley from Ascot
Despite reading the customer comments and being recommended by a good knife shop, I still nervously sent off my very expensive knives on Monday afternoon and received them back on Thursday morning! As a chef, I can't be without my knives, but they came back razor sharp in 3 days. Excellent service, thank you so much.
Trish Wallace from Edinburgh
Would highly recommend. Having read other customer comments I decided to send my knives to Robin as there were so many positive comments for sharpening Global knives.
The service was excellent through to my initial call to Robin, the email updates on progress and very sharp knives returned promptly. thank you very much
Andy Lumborg from Pontypool
There's nothing about Robin's service that I wouldn't commend very highly, from answering queries to speed of service. My Mora hunting knife came back to me razor sharp and with a much better profile for touching up on a bench stone than when I bought it. It was exactly what I wanted.
Dave Rose from Dundee
Having booked the knife sharpening course in early March and paid my deposit, I was second guessing the expense right up till the day of the first class. Within the first two hours, I was completely convinced that I had made a sound investment.
Robin is extremely open and honest about the trade, and isn't afraid to share valuable knowledge and information. For the first time in years my entreprenurial instinct has been super charged.
If you are hesitating at all, be assured that this course is worth every penny.
Emma Drage from Northants
Fantastic service, I sent my badly damaged Global knife on Tuesday and recieved it back, repaired and sharpened, on Friday.
Gillian Kelly from Aberdeen
Great service and wonderfully sharp knives, propably better than new. I bought a new knife to tide me over whilst I sent all my others away but I need not have bothered as knives were sent, sharpened and returned all within 3 days.
Mandy Atkinson from Devizes
Very fast service, scissors lovely and sharp, many thanks
Simon Eland from Wakefield, West Yorkshire
After foolishly letting my Chroma knives get dull and blunt, a quick online search brought up www.sharpknives.co.uk.
I read the services and customer comments pages and sent an email.
I quickly received an message back answering all my questions in a positive manner.
All subsequent emails were answered quickly and positively, which put my mind at rest about sending my knives away to be sharpened.
I posted them on a Thursday, and received them back the following Monday.
I would have to say they were sharper than when I bought them.
Have no fear, use this company with confidence!
Tom Shaw from Portishead
Did the course with Robin last week. I now feel that I have, not only the knowledge and competence to start my own business, but also the confidence.
Amy McCready from Bangor, Northern Ireland
I have just completed the two day sharpening course and can honestly say I have throughly enjoyed it. Robin was so helpful when it came to answering any queries surrounding starting up a sharpening business and is a true expert when it comes to sharpening. I am so excited to start my business and will most definitely keep in contact with Robin. If you are considering doing this course I suggest you go for it!! Money well spent! :)
Martin Downes from Worcestershire
Having been on the knife sharpening training at the end of January I thought I would leave my comments and thanks.
We are bombarded these days with get rich quick schemes, particularly on the internet, let me assure you this is not one. Robin gives you the confidence to sharpen knives scissors, etc and encourages you to practice, practice and practice some more.
He explains you have to go out and look for the business it won't just come to you, no different to any business really. However as I can testify the business is out there, I have just picked up an order for 70 knives!
Robin also is there after the training, I have rung him up on several occasions to ask his advice which he has been more than happy to give.
Whether a sharpening business is for you only you can decide but for me I am so pleased I took the plunge. Thank you Robin
Jason Higgins from Castleford, West Yorkshire
Thank you Robin, my Utsumi hairdressing scissors arrived this morning, razor sharp, infact they are sharper than they were when new!!!
Three day turnaround, and only £10!!
I have two more pairs ready to post, very satisfied customer.
Val Perman from Glasgow
I sent my pinking shears away on a Monday and got them back on the Wednesday - and I live in Scotland. These pinking shears have had a blunt bit in the middle for years but are now working perfectly, so I'm delighted.
Chris Greenfield from Bolton
Thank you really great service.
Perfect repair done in a very
fast time, great communications
1st class , well done, have no fear
using this service
Ian Hudson from Merseyside
Superb service - can't recomend this guy enough...
Robert Wells from Lewisham
After ringing dozens of knife sharpening companies, all of which said that they don't do thicknesser blades I stumbled upon SharpKnives.co.uk. I sent the blades away on a Saturday and they were back with me the following Wednesday, with reassuring emails sent inbetween. Can't recomment highly enough, blades are better than new!
Bryan Collins from Bedfordshire
Six Global knives posted at 3pm on Friday, by Saturday lunchtime I got confirmation that they'd been received and sharpened, and they were back in my kitchen on Tuesday morning. Excellent service, and very well sharpened too - thoroughly recommended, thank you!
Nick from Newcastle Under Lyme
sent knives thursday received back saturday morning. I will be sending more of my knives in the future, great service
Global knife repaired sharpened and despatched on the day of receipt. Now as good as new. Excellent service and highly recommended.
David Lloyd from Lincolnshire
I sent Robin my Nepali Khukri, despite having a curved blade and him expressing it may not be as well done as i would like, it came back very quickly, had a new bevel that took the nicks out of my blade and i was definitely satisfied. Just goes to show the high standard of work. Fair price for the work done too. Good customer service and email contact. Cant recommend enough. Thanks!
Paul Walker from Yorkshire
Wow what a service. Using Royal mail from Yorkshire my knifes were back within 3 days of me posting. Knifes just as sharp as I wanted. Thanks again.
Ann Fitzjohn came to the workshop
Great personal service and fantastic sharp knives. Thank you. Would definately recommend.
Helen Walker from Wellingborough
Excellent service with progress reports. I sent 10 knives on Monday and they arrived back Thursday morning at 09.30am.
5 star rating for this company!
Clive Wraight from Reading
Posted my Sabatier knife to Robin on Thursday for re-heeling and sharpening. Got it back on Saturday! Better than new, brilliant, thanks.
James Erlam from Basingstoke
Wasnt sure about posting at first but struggled to find somwhere local to me so went for it and couldnt be more pleased with the efficiency and end result of 2 knives sharper than new, returned to me in Basingstoke within 2 days. Fantastic service.
Jonny Wong from London
very quick turnaround, good communication, overall very happy with the service provided
James Deboo from Wiltshire
Extremely helpful service (I messed Robin around a fair bit with my order, one way and another, all of which was met with a cheerful 'can do' attitude). Very communicative throughout. And the knives have come back super-sharp and looking very beautiful: very very pleased indeed. Would happily rave about to anyone.
David Beech from Chepstow
Excellent service - order dealt with very quickly, and my damaged Sabatier knife is back in tip top condition for less than half the price of a replacement.
Rod Mee from Bromley
I attended Robin's November course and was very happy with the training. I think what is well worth the fee is that Robin has distilled his 15 years of experience into one weekend course. His support after the course has also been very helpful and I hope to see some success with my new business in the New year
Ed Snodgrass from Middlesex
Great Service, super fast turn around! Thanks
Elizabeth Lyon from Edinburgh
I was most impressed by the service I received when I sent fine embroidery scissors to be sharpened and repaired. The whole process only took 3 days and I am delighted that the scissors are now cutting razor sharp.
I will certainly use your company again.
Steve Wiltshire from Trowbridge
Amazing service, quality is superb, Will definitely recommend and use again
Jim Denmark from Cheshire
Excellent service, quick return, good communications...sharp knives! Many thanks.
Justin Mart from Worcestershire
Very good service, knifes returned promptly and very sharp.
Geoff Wright rom Welwyn Garden City, Herts
My Knife came back a few days after I sent it for repair. It more than lived up to expectation. Restored and razor sharp. If you want a knife that is sharper than when you bought it then send it to Robin. The service is superb.
Dave Griffin from Witney
Great job Robin! Some of those blades were over 28 years old! Hope my knife skills are up to standard otherwise it could be a trip to A&E....
Many thanks for an excellent service and will be recommending you to my foodie mates.
Melanie Sans from London
I gave my daughter and son-in-law a very good cooks knife which was miss used to chop goat bones!!(not by them). The blade had several large nicks and quite a ragged edge. As they live in Tanzania they didn't want the local pedal-powered knife grinder to sharpen the knife. So on my recent visit I brought the knife back for professional sharpening. I contacted Robin and was very impressed by the quality and speed in the return of the knife. I posted the knife 1st class on the Thursday and it was returned on the Saturday! Many thanks
Andy Tweddle from North Yorkshire
Fiendishly sharp knives - devilishly fast service. My treasured Globals haven't been this keen-edged since the day they were bought. Well done!
Susanne Huebner from East Yorkshire
Great service and communication. Very efficient and quick.
Before: I have good quality knives, but absolutely blunt.
After: Cutting is so much more fun now. Don't know why I haven't sent them in earlier. Will send my other knives in a few days. Thanks and I highly recommend.
As sharp as new, and polished too. Far too cheap for the level of service you receive!
Joyce Yee from Newcastle upon Tyne
I was gutted when my Shun Santoku knife chipped. Fortunately I found Robin's service online which has proven to be quick, efficient and very reasonably priced. Robin kept me informed of my order and I received my knives back from repair and sharpening within a few days. Excellent service.
Paul Toas from Bradford, West Yorkshire
I was extremely happy with both the service I received and the repair done to my bowie knife.
The knife looks great very happy !!.
I posted my knife on Thursday the repair was done Friday and posted directly back Saturday am.
Hannah Randall from Poole in Dorset
Oh if only life could be as simple and fundamentally satisfying as getting your knives sharpened. Exceptional fast, reliable service, excellent email updates throughout. Highly impressed, and I have told anyone who will listen about your excellent service and will be back again with more knives in the future. Many thanks.
Roger Winstanley from Oldham
I sent a carving knife and serrated bread knife to be sharpened. The service was fuss free, I was notified once my knives had been sharpened and despatched and I received them back with barely a meal's preparation missed!
Both knives now perform like I'd forgotten they could. Particularly impressive was my bread knife, although cleaning it has left our dish brush slightly worse for wear.
Overall I could not be happier with the service and I'm so glad that I decided to give this service a try rather than opting to replace my tired knives.
Will definatley use again and will recommend to others.
Bernie Rose from London
Incredible service given in absolutely no time at all - the two knives I sent for sharpening came back in a day or so and were like scalpels - thanks a million and I'll be sending more soon.
Clive Wraight from Reading
A great service at a great price. Previously I had my knife sharpened locally but was not happy with the results so I decided to take the plunge with Robin and am very happy that I did. I wish I lived closer to save the postage but will most definitely use the service next time. I sent it Monday and got it back Thursday. Brilliant! Many thanks.
Sue Woodhead from South Gloucestershire
Brilliant service. My knives were returned to me within about 3 days of posting, much sharper than they have ever been. HIghly recommended.
Andrew Holmes from London
Excellent service all round.
My knives were sharper than when new.
I posted them on Wednesday afternoon and had the knives back on Saturday morning.
Moira Prior from Edinburgh
Pinking shears returned to me within a week. They are cleaned, sharpened and have been given a new lease of life. Many thanks - a brilliant service
2 Day sharpening training - Joe Gomez from Essex
We had a great two days with Robin... a man who seriously knows his stuff. A great hands on course and with a very small class lots of time for practice and question.
A great teacher and I would seriously recommend this course.
Stay in touch
RicK from Manchester
great friendly service recommend to any one needing cutting tools sharpening cheers robin
kelvin roy rex from Dorset
brilliant service best money i have spent for years has brought my knives back to life
Rod Fleckner from Southampton
I have just used this knife sharpening service for the first time. I have to say that the organisation is first class. My knives came back today sharpened to perfection.I would have to recommend them again and again, they are the best you'll find. Rod from Soton
Oliver Mackmin from Brighton
Great service, helpful advice on the phone, two knives sent on Thursday, received back on Saturday as sharp as when they were new.
Paid for repair to tip for minor damage, money was refunded as he managed to fix the defect by sharpening alone. An honest tradesmen and a great service.
David Priaulx from Broadstairs
I have just attended Robin's knife and scissor sharpening training course and found it to be an extremely beneficial and thoroughly enjoyable two days. Robin made the course interesting and he passed on his years of knowledge in the craft. He is a true expert in his field and a great teacher. Thank you very much!
Jon Weldon from Brighton
Excellent service and a stunning repair to a Kai Shun chef knife. The blade had a large nick and a bent tip after someone used it to slice through bone but came back looking like new with the blade polished to a mirror finish.
Posted for repair on a Monday, received confirmation receipt and repair completed notification on Tuesday and arrived back Thursday! Fantastic personal service.
Joanne Womack from Doncaster
Excellent service. Knives are better than new and amazingly quick. Good communication too.
Stephen Gray from Tyne and Wear
I posted my mandolin blade and recieved an email the next day to say it had been sharpened and posted back. It arrived the next day and is extremely sharp. I would definitely use 'The Knife Sharpening Service' again and highly recommend them to anyone. Their customer service is second to none.
Ben Samways from Bournemouth
I sent my knives on Monday and they arrived back Wednesday razor sharp! I don't think I'll be trying to sharpen them myself anymore.
Tim Fletcher from Daventry
I have been searching for a gadget to sharpen my knives properly - I have bought a dozen different things to do it, however I have now found the perfect thing to sharpen my knives. His name is Robin.
Knives of all shapes and sizes sent off and came back by return beautifully sharp. They don't LOOK much different and they don't FEEL all that much sharper, but as soon as you use them you find they are MILES better.
I'm delighted and will be sending them back as soon as they need it. Many thanks on a great service.
Roger Saunders from Abingdon, Oxon
My prized global knives came back very sharp and with a very quick turnaround. Happy to recommend the company
Dr Thomas McNamara from Southampton
Having struggled with blunt knives for ages I decided to try and get them sharpened. As some are 35 years old and were my knives at catering college they hold real sentimental value to me. I found The Knife Sharpening Service on the web and read the reviews. The reviews were very enthusiatic and complimentary and included domestic cooks and professional chefs. If professional chefs are willing to send their knives to Robin then I thought the service must be great and so rang Robin to discuss. Robin was very, very helpful and we agread a price for my 25 knives. I sent them to him early on a Thursday morning and received them back on the saturday. The knives are beautifully sharpened and the price was very reasonable. I liked the way that Robin kept me updated as to when he recieved the knives and when he had finished the job and sent them back. A great service, at a great price and the speed of service was amazing. I will definitely be using Robin and The Knife Sharpening Service again in the future and would recommend the service to anyone.
Mick Foulkes from Cardiff
I have a £2k collection of "Global" knives and was a little apprehensive of handing them over for sharpening. I therefore went along to the workshop (1 hr 40 mins drive from my home)and met Robin. The set up is first class together with the sharpening service!!
Robin, many thanks, it's a pleasure to see companies like yours raising the bar in today's service sector.
Dan Mant from Portsmouth
Turnaround quicker than Usain Bolt, and knives sharper than an Armani suit. Excellent stuff, I'll be back for more.
Michael (Writer & Journalist) from Gloucester
Hi there Robin
That Füri knife you have a pic of is mine -- some friends damaged it in my little place on Paxos, and the first I knew about it was when it arrived here in Gloucs through the mail. I can honestly say it's better now than it was originally. You are clearly a honemeister! I know where my knives are going for their tune-up from now on.
Rob Watson from Swindon
Fantastic service. Last time I took my knives to the workshop but did it by post this time. Very fast and easy service and as before you have done a great job. Thoroughly reccomended!
I just wanted to let you know how absolutely delighted I am with the miracles you performed on my knives. I have had to use them a huge amount this week and waves of gratitude should have been wafting there way to you!
I will tell all my students where to come to transform their Globals too.
I will be bringing all my other knives to you very soon.
Karin Brayshaw from Malta
Delighted with my dog clipper blades - and my spaniels will second that. A super quick turnaround and nice customer contact as well - what a find!
Chef Jack Richardson from Swindon
They arrived and I'm very, very happy, thank you so much. They're an amazingly clean edge
At first I was wary sending my knives off to get sharpened by a third party. But after seeing the results I would recommend you to any michelin starred chef, also the price (don't charge me extra but for the record you're too cheap) It's an excellent edge.
I'm sure you know all this, but you are an untapped resource. More chefs should be using you, they're obviously nervous about getting their knives badly ground!
Your other major hurdle is (which I've only just realised, but I'm sure you realised a long time ago) is chefs pride! And admitting that someone else other than them, can get a cleaner and straighter edge than they can?
I'm very impressed, the boys will send their knives soon I'm sure. I've got some more I need to send as well
Tim Everett from Southampton
Great sevice, very quick turn around and very blunt knives returned to factory sharpness! Would definitely recommend and will use again.
I couldn't find anyone who sharpens electronic Guillotine blades in the area, so my Wife looked up knife sharpening and found Robin's company. The while-you-wait service was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Absolutely brilliant! I will come back again, and again. Many thanks.
Ted Stacey from Malta who received Knife Sharpening Training
Upgraded my training with Robin last week. Benefited greatly from his years of experience and skills, with very good advice on what machines not to buy from "get rich quick" companies. Thanks again, Robin...
Andy Russell from Northampton
Great service and turnaround. I posted my knives to Robin Monday and received them back Thursday. Delighted with the results.
Christopher Fowler from Wakefield, West Yorkshire
Excellent speedy replies to my emails and also an amazingly fast turnaround on the knives I sent for sharpening. Having gently touched the edges, I think they are sharper now than the day I acquired them.
Thanks too for providing such an honest service, doing just what was necessary and no more and refunding the overpayment I made. Very refreshing in this day and age.
I suspect the best way for me to keep my knives in good condition is to send them to you every couple of months or so - you will be hearing from me again.
Chef Gordon Willis from Warrington
Had my tojiro knives sharpened,like new again, brilliant fast service at a reasonable price, i would defiantly use again, and recommend to other chefs.
Matt Stalker from Bristol
Excellent service from start to finish. Even though I asked for work that was beyond the remit of that being offered, Robin made a best attempt at it, and in the end gave me a full refund, including postage costs, plus a suggested place to try next.
Service like this is rare and to be highly commended.
I found the service provided by the Knife Sharpening Service was excellent and Robin exceeded my expectations, a real professional!
I presented Robin with my Global Knives after 3 years of my own sharpening on a Global wet stone. The result was a big bow in the cutting surface, which he honed back to perfection as well as 2 sets of dress making scissors. Overall excellent customer service, product knowledge, local and good value for money. I have no hesitation in recomending Robin and I will definitely be a regular customer.
Would just like to say a big thanks for the service provided in sharpening our Global Knives. I have never known them so sharp, we're really chuffed with the quality of the service. I'll be recommending you to all our friends and family. Also like to thank you for your patience in recieving our knives (packing is not my strong point). I was amazed to have received them 2 days after I sent them in the post.
Steve from Nailsea
Arranged to visit on Tuesday with 8 knives to sharpen. Exceptional service and I am now the proud owner of razor-sharp knives.
If you are able to take your knives rather than posting them, I thoroughly recommend it - very interesting watching Robin at work, and loads of hints and tips on keeping your knives sharp.
Catherine Bartrum from Hampshire
A really excellent service. The 3 knives were sharpened and the nicks and tip were repaired and the parcel returned to me the same day. Very reasonable prices which have made the knives as good as new.
Robert Parmenter from Reading
Knives really sharp.
Turnaround really really quick.
Richard Leyton fro Hursley, Hampshire
Stunning service. Knives came back by return. Now all I have to see is whether I can keep them touched up - but that is my problem.
Michael Tupper from Barnes, London
I could not be more impressed by this service. My knives came back to me 3 or 4 days after despatch and were much much better than brand new. I will have my kitchen knives sharepened regularly from now on. Highly recommended.
Excellent service. Fast and efficient, really good price, and REALLY sharp.
Be careful when your knives come back!
Kate Walmsley from Reading
I sent you two pairs of very well used dressmaking scissors and an ageing pair of pinking shears all of which were struggling to do the job they were designed to do.
You have done an amazing job with them. The scissors go through the fabric like a hot knife through butter, thank you very much. Kate
Tony Egan from Co Meath, Ireland
This is really an excellent and reliable service. Communication was great throughout the process. The knife arrived back today like new. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I am a chef and so fairly precious about my knives. I sent a first batch off slightly nervously, but Robin kept in touch at all stages and my knives were returned rapidly and beautifully sharpened. I will now be happy to use Robin's service frequently and recommend him highly.
Jean from Slough
I received my knives in the post this morning and I am thrilled - thank you so much. As mentioned on the phone I thought that they were only good for the bin. After your amazing work they are now as good as new - better than new! Excellent, quick, superb service. Highly recommended. Thank you.
David Harvey from Derby
Quite simply, the best service I have ever received. Turned around in a day, removed a GOOD dint from the blade and returned with a blade that a samurai would be proud of!
Thank you so very much for salvaging my pride and joy. I will be back and would heartily recommend this service to anyone!
Kellie from London
I sent a damaged chef's knife and it has come back good as new! Also recieved a refund as I had over estimate the cost of the repair and sharpening. Very quick and good service, thank you.
Mike Raw from Stockton on Tees
Bought a new hunting knife, tried to add that extra edge and stuffed it up. Posted to Knife Sharpening Service, job done. Returned, in two days, that’s fast and the knife was as good as new with that extra sharp edge I wanted. Very impressed and will definitely use again as the price was good.
Excellent service, and my knackered bushcraft knife now looks like new! Thanks.
Sian from Chepstow
Fantastic service from Robin. I had my Global knives sharpened (and one re-pointed) shortly before Christmas - and it made carving the turkey a joy! They were returned very promptly in excellent packaging and I was kept in touch via email at every stage of the process. I'll be sending more knives his way. Highly recommended.
Joanne White from Manchester
I had 6 Global knives sharpened and the service was incredible. My knives were returned as good as new. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this service to anyone who needs knives sharpening. It is an extremely quick, efficient and very reasonably priced service and I promise you won't be disappointed with the results.
Dave Watson from Worthing, West Sussex.
Knives returned sharp and by return. Excellent service, even refunded me some money where I had measured incorrectly
Audrey Anderson from Scotland
I was not only impressed by the fantastic job Robin had done sharpening my knives but also how quickly they were returned to me in Aberdeenshire.
Many thanks Robin for your superb service.
Graham Peake from Bristol
I was looking to buy a replacement set knives and whetstone when I stumbled upon Robins' web site. I called Robin on the Tuesday and popped round the next day for a sharpen- while-you-wait service. My knives are now as good as new at a fraction of the cost of a replacement set - Perfect!
David Sunter from Bristol
Appointment made for early evening; arrived at Robin's workshop with 20 kitchen knives of various sizes, shapes and age. An hour and a quarter later I left with sharp and once-more useful utensils, even those of many years standing. An efficient, friendly and economic service which I wholeheartedly endorse.
Bridget Sterling from Bath
I took my chef's knives and a pair of pinking shears to Robin to sharpen. I don't think they've ever been this sharp before. His work is meticulous and of a very high standard. He is without question a master at what he does. Thank you Robin.
Sean Bowen from Bristol
Dropped both my hunting knives in to Robin at 3pm on Monday, Robin called me that evening to say he had sharpened both knives. Collected them the next day and must say what a fantastic finish on both. Robin understood my request and both knoves are now up to the task. The scratches were even removed at no additional cost. Will definitely use the service again.
Colin Campbell from Perth & Kinross, Scotland
Thoroughly pleased with the service received. The initial contact was responsive and helpful, the web site instructions easy to follow and, most important of all, my knives were expertly repaired and returned promptly. More than happy to recommend this service to anyone considering it.
Tamara from Bath
I just wanted to give my thanks to Robin, who sharpened my hairdressing scissors a few weeks ago now.
They were really blunt.
Now they are just like new.... even sharper than when first brought and let me tell you, saved me a fourtune as new scissors are not cheap!
I would and have recommended Robin to fellow hairdresser's and yes Robin I got the job, thanks to you!
Excellent service and very good customer service!
Graham from Bungay, Suffolk.
I would recommend this service to anyone.
I sent off a number of hunting knives recently and got them back in well under a week and to say they're sharp is an understatement!!
Give The Knife & Scissor Sharpening Service a try and you won't be disappointed.
Dave Clark from Scotland
I was most impressed with this service,not only did my hunting knives come back very sharp,but also with the speed of them getting back to me.From Aberdeenshire and back within 48 hrs cant ask for better than that.
Dennis Childs From France
I live in France and I was very pleased to find that I was able to get my thicknesser blades sharpened and returned to me all in less than 10 days - and more cheaply than having them sharpened here.
I'm the idiot whose Global knife is highlighted third on the photos page with the one in 'very poor' condition after I hacked at a bone with the knife. I had written it off as a lost cause but came across Robin's website and saw what was possible, sent off my complete set of knives and just got them back, three days later. I'm quite honestly amazed that this sort of service still exists, at such a reasonable price and at the results. Fantastic, keep up the good work!
Rob from Cardiff
Just to say all the knives were really sharp. The service was excellent and you also repaired the broken tip for free. Thanks so much. I'll be back in touch if i need anything else sharpened.
Pat Manning from Bingley in Yorkshire
Sent two Global knives for sharpening on Wednesday, received them back on Monday sharp enough to shave with. Excellent service and a lot cheaper than buying new knives!
Carl Emary from Cardiff
Wow wow woo wah! Amazing sent 2 globals and a reguler chefs knife, sharp is not the word. Fantastic service and all my queries were answered will full profesionalism and all in all a fantastic service, have advised family and friends now this is the place to get your blades sharpened, Now got to go get my cook on !
Stephen Butcher from Bedfordshire
Three gentleman's pocket knives received from a bespoke custom knife maker are now razor sharp thanks to Robin - will be using your services again!
Paul Brown from Cardiff

What excellent service! I sent my kitchen knives to Robin and he sharpened them brilliantly and returned them within 24 hours. Much better than my local hardware store, which takes 2 weeks to sharpen knives! I will definitely use Robin again and recommend him to others.

Whilst kitchen knives are not the ‘tools of our trade’ for my Wife and I, over the years we have invested in a set of very expensive Shun Kaji blades so as you can imagine, the thought of someone putting them on a ‘grindstone’ was quite off putting. Needs must though and the service, expertise, care and professionalism delivered by Robin meant all our fears were non-founded!
I was able to take the knives to Robin’s workshop and watched as he carefully restored each knife to razor (and I do mean razor!) sharpness, polishing and finally degreasing each with equal care.
If anyone has any concerns about the care, attention or value for money that Robin offers forget it! We will definitely be a long term customer and can not recommend the service enough.

Thanks Robin for a really quick, efficient and friendly service. The knives are now superb!
Greg Roskell from Preston
I sent a selection of work and hunting knives to Robin to have them re-honed. I found the service from first contact to receiving the knives back was first class, and the knives.....well, like new. I would use their services again and have no reservations around recommending them.

Delighted to recommend Robin who provides a first-class service. Super fast, cost-effective and lovely sharp knives again! What more could you ask for?
Paul Brown from Cardiff
thanks robin it came back amazingly sharp and polished to mirror shine..a true master at work..AAAAA++++++++++
My husbands global knife had a huge chip in the blade and had not been used for years. I sent the knife to Robin and he quickly restored it to former glory! The blade is better than new and the service Robin supplied was second to none!
My large kitchen knife was in very poor condition, so I took it to Robin, and while I waited, he restored it to its original sharpness. He gave very good value for money and I would recommend him wholeheartedly.
Robin responded for my request for a quick service with ease and politeness.
I was with him as he worked (in ever growing cold conditions) and he kept me fully informed of what he was doing with each knife, and why, throughout the whole process. His communication skills are to be admired.
I had 5 knives sharpened this afternoon and have already enjoyed the experience of using some of them.
I will certainly use him again and have no hesitation in recommending him.
All I can do is thank him for the very good service I have received.
A really fantastic service from Robin. Very quick and my knives have come back like razor blades. He is also a very good communicator. I'll be using his service again for sure! Thank you.
Fantastic service. Amongst the knives that I had treated, a couple of them in particular were very blunt and they have literally been transformed. I would not hesitate to recommend Robin to anyone.
what an amazing service - 6 knives sharpened for 15 quid! To replace them, it would have cost about £150. Fantastic value for money.
Robin provides the best service your professional knives can have.
It is the second time I had my knives serviced in one year and once again they are sharper than ever. Twice I have been received with very short notice and have been able to watch him working, very interesting.
The level of service has been increased since my first visit with the three recently added polishing/ finishing wheels giving the knives an extra absolute finish and shine (sorry if I don't use the proper technical words!).
Robin's great customer care, his passion for sharpening, drive for perfection and very competitive pricing are all reasons why he provides the best service a blade would dream of! There isn't anyone in my area to provide such a level of service and I would definitely and happily do the 30 miles again when needed.
I highly recommend The Knife Sharpening Service to any chef who really cares about his knives (you should see what he can do with a blunt Global knife ! ) and to any professional or passionate DIY with a blade.
