There is also information on scissor and garden tool sharpening that is not in any book. We explain how to sharpen pinking shears and re-serrate a worn bread knife.

We also include a copy of our book Sharpening Made Easy and our the 53 page booklet How to Start a Knife Sharpening Business.

Finally you will receive the same discounts that our students enjoy. If you equip your business from us you can save over $280 in equipment discounts, more than the cost of the package.  See list at bottom of this page.
