    Interesting article. I never realised there was so much to a knife! You on the other hand, clearly know your knives. 🙂

    I have used the same Sabatier knife for 34 years and was devastated when chunks were lost where the blade had thinned. This rendered it useless. Colin resurrected my knife. He re-heeled it, sharpened it and polished it. You should see the photos he took of the process. Once again my old faithful is back in service and is wonderful to use. Colin could not have been more helpful. He is professional, efficient, courteous and explained everything. I cannot recommend him highly enough. I will use him again at the end of the season to sharpen my lawnmower blade and edge trimmers. A gem of a find. Thank you. Linda, LS16

    Colin was great from start to finish. Good to communicate with, flexible on collection and delivery and clearly an expert who takes great pride in what he does. Not only sharpened superbly the knives I gave him, but also polished and reheeled where required. He even lent me a couple of replacements whilst he was completing the job which was fantastic. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    Fantastic service from Colin at Came to the house and re-sharpened all 10 of my kitchen knives with high quality equipment and skill. As an ex chef Colin also has the added knowledge of what a good knife should look like when its working at its best. Definite recommend from me. Thank you.

    Colin did a fantastic job on my old dressmaking shears, embroidery snippers and kitchen knife at a very reasonable cost. He is very reliable, pleasant and thoroughly recommended. Easy to find in Alwoodley.

    Dropped off my gardening shears and left them with Colin. Collected them this morning and they are like brand new. Trimmed my lawn for the first time this year and they cut like a hot knife through butter. Excellent.

  7. I took a range of Kitchen Knives to Colin for sharpening. He dealt with them immediately and now they are like new. Fantastic efficient prompt service at a very reasonable price.

    Colin called round to my house in Harrogate when he was in the area a few days after me getting in touch with him. He fixed five of my knives that I had not looked after very well, re-edged and sharpened them all for a very very reasonable price.

    I asked Colin what I was doing wrong and he explained exactly what to do to ensure I take good care of my knives in the future. Advice taken and put into action, six weeks on and the knives are still as sharpe and performant as the day Colin left.

    Thanks again Colin, I cannot recommend you highly enough.

    What a fantastic service. Promt, efficient, friendly, instructive and great value for money. I can’t recommend this company enough.

    I discovered them when I noticed their distinctive van livery. So please if you or someone you know needs knives or tools sharpening give Colin a call, you won’t be disappointed.

    Best Christmas present
    Report Review I decided to have all my kitchen knives sharpened just before Christmas. It was the best Christmas present I could have given myself and made life in the kitchen so much easier in prepping all the food. Colin managed to restore all my knives to their original sharpness and even reshaped the tip if a damaged carving knife which I had thought was beyond redemption!
    Colin is efficient, knowledgable and surprisingly reasonably priced. He showed me how to maintain the knives using the steel so I can keep them all sharp. I would thoroughly recommend his service to anyone who wants to avoid the frustrations of blunt kitchen tools. Treat yourselves!

    Sharper than ever
    Report Review My santoku knife needed sharpening, so another visit to CG sharpening, and I am so glad I did. Colin sharpened the knife whilst I waited and I got to see his latest top of the range sharpening machine. Colin is passionate about his work and that shows when you’re watching him ensure your knife is perfectly sharpened. The knife is now a pleasure to use again. Colin also provided valuable advice on the day about the quality of knives available and the issues of certain brands.

    Fast, efficient service resulting in super-sharp knives. Colin’s enthusiasm for his work and careful attention to detail made me feel really confident that the end result would be perfect. Thanks!

    Got all my knives and scissor sharpened this morning by Colin. Great service and very quick to reply to all queries.
    Colin has excellent knowledge and gave me a few tips for caring for the knives in the future.

  16. J Jagger says:

    Colin sharpened two pairs of dressmaking scissors for me that I had at sometime managed to get nicks in the blades. They are now perfect. Highly recommended. Fast and efficient, great service.

    Colin made an excellent job of our dining knives with damaged serrations, also secateurs and a pruner blade.
