Are you a Chef or Fisherman who works and depends on your knives daily? A knife sharpened by a bladesmith who understands your needs can significantly improve your productivity. The results can be astounding and best of all, your specialty knives and tools will be returned to you in better condition than when they arrived. You’ll soon appreciate how quickly a professional sharpening can positively affect your daily grind. Always remember a sharp knife is a safe knife!

Here are a few guidelines to help you get an idea of the cost for sharpening services. Please note that this guide is a “ballpark” estimate… the amount of wear/damage to your blade can effect the final price.


Most kitchen knives follow my $0.75/inch of blade length($0.30/cm) pricing scheme. So an 8 inch long chef knife would be $6 to sharpen(8×0.75=6). Some finely/micro serrated knives are too difficult to sharpen… I need to be able to get in between the serrations. 


Hunting, fishing, tactical and pocket knives run $1.00/inch of blade length($0.40/cm) If I feel they are of simple design and geometry, I will use the kitchen knife price scheme. Axes and hatchets run about $8-$10

Home and Garden

Gas / Electric Mowers (Blade OFF) $10
Garden Shears and Pruners $10-$15
Spades, Hoes and Edgers $8
Scythe $15-$25
Woodworking chisels $3-$5
I can also sharpen most drill bits above 1/16″(2mm) but need to see them, first
***I cannot sharpen planer, jointer or other precision machine blades***

Specialty Blades

Hair Cutting Scissors/Shears and Straight Razors can be of many different geometries and construction. I can sharpen most but these require a bit more attention. A very rough estimate would be $15-$25 for scissor and razors.
Swords and all other blades of unusual size, please inquire.
