We visually inspect each knife bladeWe will check for particular areas of damage or wear to either the blade or the handle. We are looking for small nicks or dents and we will check the tip of the knife to see if it needs repointing. We will also check the blades shape to assess whether the blade has become ‘arched’ through heavy or prolonged use.Repointing
We will put a new tip on all knives with a worn or broken tip (where appropriate!).We will reshape the blade to remove any ‘arching’. This is quite common in large cooks knives that get the heaviest and most prolonged use.Once the blade has been repointed and reshaped as required, we then sharpen the blade edge bringing it back to its ‘as new’ condition. All our sharpening is done by hand. There is no better way to ensure each and every knife gets the finish it requires.Stage one sharpening is undertaken on a specialist water cooled knife sharpening wheel, which puts on a new set of bevels at the appropriate angle for the knife being sharpened.Stage two sharpening involves sharpening the knife on a superfine wet stone. This smoothes the bevels off and puts a light polish on the blade edge. This ensures the knife cuts very cleanly and that the edge is strong and long lasting.
