At Market Sharpening Company, we offer two levels of sharpening services to meet the needs of all our clients. Our standard sharpening service provides a polished 1000 grit finish, which is suitable for most western-style knives. This service is ideal for those who use their knives in the kitchen for everyday kitchen prep and want them to be sharp and reliable. The Standard edge has a more aggressive bite when cutting and will remain performing at a high level for 6 months to a year with daily use.
For those who have high-end knives such as Japanese, hand-forged, or carbon steel knives, we highly mandate our premium sharpening service. This service includes a polished 4000 grit finish, which provides an exceptionally sharp edge that can handle intricate tasks. With our premium service, your knives will not only be sharp, but they will also retain their sharpness for a longer period of time. It is crucial to polish the edge to this level on these knives as the steel is harder and therefor more brittle. If they were only sharpened to the Standard polish they would be more likely to chip and crack.
All sharpening is guided ensuring that each time you get your knives sharpened they will have the same cut feel. The guided sharpening process increases the accuracy of the sharpening and results in less material needing to be ground away leading to longer knife life. Standard sharpening starts on a CBN diamond wheel on a low speed grinder. CBN wheels generate little heat in the sharpening process ensuring your blade will burn and loose its hardness in the process. Once a burr is formed with teh CBN wheel it is then removed on a stropping wheel for the standard sharpen bringing it to a 1000 grit finish; where as for the premium service it is further polished on a 4000 grit Japanese water stone bringing the edge to a mirror finish. The premium finish is then stropped to remove the burr and left razor sharp. Broken tips or other profile damage is always included in the price of sharpening.
Both our standard and premium services are completed with the same level of care and attention to detail. No matter which service you choose, we guarantee that your knives will be returned to you sharp enough to shave with, making all your tasks easier and more enjoyable.
