We repair your broken blades
How do we work?
Everything starts with an appointment arranged by email or phone. We discuss your knife sharpening request, assess the damage, and suggest the best solution for you. When your blade could no longer be sharpened, we would state that at this point.
To repair a knife, e.g., with a broken tip (above 1cm), large nicks
(up to 3mm), or severely damaged blades, we grind all the affected areas so that a new blade is created. To do this, we must use dry grinding. (Please note that after such procedure the blade will be smaller).
During this process, we take great care that the material does not overheat. After the
reconstruction, it is up to you whether you prefer dry or wet grinding. We recommend a refinement after such an operation. With this, your instrument will be re-born. Please bear in mind that this procedure makes the blade naturally matt. However, we can revive its gloss for a surcharge.
Consequently: For the repair done in our workshop, we use a sharpening machine with rotating stone and grinding belt.

Treating your blade with 4,000 grit Japanese whetstone provides smoothest cutting edge possible.
Using a special sharpening system, the knife is pre-ground into an ideal form. Afterward, it is ground and polished, so that you can enjoy working with your knife again.
