Welcome to A Finer Edge, LLC, a, mobile, professional sharpening service.

A Finer Edge, LLC services South Charlotte's sharpening needs for salons and homes. It is fully  insured, utilizing industry certified  sharpening skills received while taking professional sharpening training from The Sungold Group (http://www.sungoldgroupinc.com/) , a company that has been training professional sharpeners for 25 years.

My goal is to start establishing regular sharpening visits to neighbors and shopping centers, providing the Charlotte area with a reliable sharpening service that can be counted on.

Service areas include South Charlotte, Pineville and the Ballantyne area. If at all possible, I would like (for now) to service areas south of Fairview Road. I can go outside of this area but will require an additional trip charge depending on how far I would have to drive.

Because of the cost of gas for the large sharpening van, I need to have a minimum of $25 in sharpening before I can go anywhere in the van to do sharpening.

If you are outside this service area or you're in a hurry, you can bring your items to me for sharpening. Or, if there is sufficient work to justify driving the extra distance, I will travel outside my service area. Please call or email if you are not sure.

I specialize in sharpening for:

-Pet salons & groomers (shears, clippers)

-Homes (knives, scissors (household & sewing) and tools, lawn & garden tools (lawn mower blades, hedge clippers, etc.)

-Businesses and offices (scissors & paper cutters)

-Lawn and tree care (lawn mower blades, hand saws, manual and electric hedge trimmers, pruners)

-Veterinarian and animal hospitals (clippers, dental, surgical instruments & shears)

-Refinishing old wooden handles on knives. Many times, putting these knives in dishwashers will damage wood handles, especially handles made with layers of wood. I can refinish (but not replace) these wooden handles so your knives will last a lifetime.

"I can sharpen almost anything except your wits"

1. For your convenience, I come to you for your sharpening.

2. Do not throw it away just because it's dull!!! I can sharpen it for much less that what it would cost for you to replace it, not to mention the time, hassle and gas it takes to replace it!

I have been given many compliments on the edges I put on many items, including knives. This has changed...for the better.

I have purchased a wet honing machine with ceramic wheels. If you liked my edges before, just wait until you see what I can do now!!!

I did some charity sharpening for a Children's Home in Rock Hill. Check out the News page for what Wusthof did for them.


New sharpening hours:

Because I have a full-time job in addition to sharpening, I have had to revised the hours I can sharpen:
Mon-Fri: after 6:30pm
Saturdays: 9am-7pm
Sundays: 1pm-6pm
Please call during these hours.
Always...please call before coming to my home for sharpening to make sure I will be home.
Before ANY sharpening can be done, I will ALWAYS confirm your appointment (usually in an email), whether I am coming to your place, we are meeting somewhere or you are coming to my place. This way, it is understood where the sharpening is to occur and when. I do not come to a home unless the appointment has been confirmed first.

ALWAYS call first before coming to my home to make sure I will be there when you arrive at my place for sharpening.

I do not, however, sharpen chain saws or circular saw blades . I will not sharpen professional hair shears if they have been previously sharpened by others. There are too many so-called sharpeners who are not sharpening shears properly & have ruined many shears in the area. If improperly sharpened, hair shears may cut well at first. It is very difficult to sharpen these shears once they have been improperly sharpened several times.

CREDIT CARD USERS:
I have had to stop accepting credit cards for now. The credit card swiper on my I-phone has ceased working and they no longer make them for my I-phone.

I will have to wait until I can afford to get a new cell phone in order to accept credit cards again.
