OUR SHARPENING METHODS
Back to Top
Tools with slicing, shearing & chopping blades are COLD HONED (NOT simply ground) grinding overheats the steel of the blade, softening the cutting edge.
We use a superior method called Double Bevelling. Double bevelling enhances the blade’s penetrating ability while maintaining a good strong cutting edge.
First we cold hone a 15° bevel down each side of the blade, this is called a relief bevel. Then using a fine commercial oil stone a 20° bevel is added to the tip of the 15° previously honed relief bevel. This 20° bevel is called the primary bevel.
The 15° relief bevel gives the blade good penetration and the 20° primary bevel gives the actual cutting edge strength & durability.
The 20° Primary bevel is very small (hardly visible) but it’s there and it’s VERY effective.
Bad Chips, Damaged Edges & Broken Tips on Knives & Cleavers can usually be repaired
Both blades are cold
honed at the optimum angle for the particular type of scissor being
sharpened. Then the blade tension is checked & adjusted if required.
This is Very important, if the tension is too loose, the edge life is
dramatically reduced. Too tight and the tool is hard to use and painful
on the hand.
Then the hinge pivot is lubricated with long lasting light oil, we service both right handed & left handed scissors
Scissor Action Tools
Like garden shears & pruners, are sharpened similarly to the scissors method outlined above.
Secateurs & loppers
The tool is
disassembled & cleaned. The top cutting blade is cold honed at the
optimum angle of 20°. The bottom anchor blade is honed to remove any
chips or burrs. We lubricate the pivot or pivots with a long lasting oil
& reassemble the tool.
We service both right handed & left handed secateurs.
We disassemble the tool, clean & cold hone the cutting edges. Then most Importantly the blade alignment is checked & corrected if malaligned.
Hedge Clippers are prone to blade malalignment due to the long blades & type of work they are doing (often they are used as secateurs).
