Stay home. Get sharp.
Rolling into Waterloo Region this fall is a fantastic new service that brings the joy of sharp knives right to your front door. Yes, Sharp My Knife, is a mobile sharpening franchise that will sharpen almost anything from kitchen knives to scissors, vegetable peelers to food processor blades, paper cutters to garden & workshop tools. If it has an edge, chances are we can sharpen it.
Am I dull?
If you regularly cook at home and cut on a wooden cutting board, your knives should be sharpened every 3 – 6 months. Plastic, glass and marble cutting boards dull knives faster so if one of those is your usual cutting surface you might need to sharpen more frequently. Cutting tomatoes is always a good test; when they start to squish, it’s time to give us a call.
To best care for your knives, never put them in the dishwasher (sorry!), store them in a knife block, and try to hone them between uses with a sharpening steel. Working with sharp knives really can make cooking for your family easier, faster and more enjoyable.
What makes Sharp My Knife unique?
Although we were inspired by the ‘old guys in vans’ that drove through neighbourhoods ringing their bells, we were often too slow to catch them or weren’t home when they came by. So our approach with Sharp My Knife was to modernize the ‘biz’ by setting up appointments, using email, Twitter & Facebook to share our route for the week and making sharpening as easy and convenient as possible for our clients.
Do you sharpen in my area?
We’re a mobile company so the short answer is, yes. We service Waterloo Region, Hamilton, London, GTA, and Guelph. We’ll head further afoot to Niagara, cottage country or Grey/Bruce by special arrangement.
How much does sharpening cost?
Knives are priced at $1.00 per blade inch. We ask that for mobile service you meet a minimum of $80.00.
You might consider hosting a Sharp Party for your friends – they bring their knives and you save! Check our website for details.
We also offer preferred pricing for commercial clients so if you are in the restaurant, personal chef or catering business, give us a call!
How do I make an appointment?
