Knife Sharpening (Single or First Knife sent) on demand! Mail or Ship your knife in from anywhere inside of the continental US (does not include AK and HI); most folding knives fit nicely in a USPS pre-paid, but make sure you save your tracking (we take responsibility for your blade the moment it arrives). Once it gets to our shop space I will give it the Crazy-Sharp-Edge treatment.
What is the Crazy-Sharp-Edge treatment? Much as it sounds...your knife is first brought to a true edge on an electric slack belt. Some knifes forgo this step depending on the type of knife and the existing edge inherent to the blade. Some knives require manual honing devices or more delicate stones (custom and antique blades). From there the burr on the blade is removed and a detailed hone is applied using a fine ceramic crock or depending on the knife other very fine stones or laps. Greatness comes from years of practice. We are used to sharpening as many as 50 to 100 knives in a day. Each knife will receive careful and individual care. Our aim is always to remove the least metal while creating the most microscopic teeth that comprises your knife's cutting-edge.
Where many sharpening services use a wheel to polish the edge (for a mirror like surface applied primarily for cosmetics), the focus of the Crazy-Sharp-Edge treatment is not to create a cosmetic edge but instead a toothy fine cutting hone that will retain its cutting utility for as long as the quality of your steel will allow. Please contact Cascadia Cutlery directly if you plan on sending rare and custom blades, before sending them...probably want to slap some extra insurance on those on the way here.
Contact me in advance if your knife is going to require significant rust or cosmetic restoration (email pictures to email@example.com). Please also contact us prior to sending your knife in if you have custom grind requests or cosmetic blade clean up outside of the standard Crazy-Sharp-Edge. This service does include basic tip reshaping if you have a broken tip (if your knife is broken in half, you should be looking at your warranty and not this service). This service does include hand sharpening on serrations at no additional cost. This service guarantees as good an edge as your blade can take. This service does not include dis-assembly or mechanical repair of your knife. It is an edge service and we also have no interest of voiding your warranty. This service does not include cosmetic alterations or rust restoration of your blade. We cannot add material to your blade.
This is not a service for the hopeless...send in a blade with great steel and your knife is destined for greatness. Send a ten dollar gas-station-special for service and it will come back to you improved and with as good of an edge as it can take.
Please include your Name, Address and Phone Number in the special instructions of the check-out page (even better if you want to email it to me with tracking so I can anticipate your knife). Include the number of knives being sent and the type of knife with a good description (ie K-Bar USMC, Benchmade 940, Global 8" Santoku). Please include the same information on a neatly written or typed note inside the box you send the knife in. Note that padded envelopes are not a reliable or sturdy enough packing for most knives and usually arrive empty. USE A REAL BOX! Put packing around it...be smart about your packing so the knife is not cutting its way to freedom on the way to Cascadia Cutlery's Crazy-Sharp-Edge Treatment. We do not accept COD packages (post must be pre-paid on your end getting it here).
$25 covers return shipping inside the Continental United States (does not include Alaska and Hawaii) and sharpening of one knife. Note: If you have more than one knife you will need to select the Mail-in-Sharpening (Additional Knives) in subsequent quantity.
