HOW IT WORKS

Best Edge Mobile Sharpening uses a technology called MIRROR CUT®. This is a wet linishing process that sharpens your implements like no other process can.

Up until the advent of MIRROR CUT®, knife sharpening methods had not kept pace with the major changes in technology that were applicable. The Dry Grinding processes used by most sharpening providers today are the same as they were over 30 years ago. However, modern knives are very susceptible to heat related damage caused by these now outdated methods. Modern Stainless Alloy knives require a totally different approach regards sharpening.

The MIRROR CUT® wet linish process does not produce any heat which means no chipping or cracking. The reduced friction makes for easier cutting and a superior edge with remarkable cutting retention. Knives sharpened with this method suffer less ‘Steeling’, are easier to clean and don’t have to be sharpened as often. Which means a boost to your back pocket!

"This guy is really good hit him up I got mine done all the way up in Coles bay. "

 

Cale

"John came to my home and sharpened my knives and secateurs. My knives are now back to what they should be (the safety sheet he provided is a great idea). He also ground down a paring knife with a broken tip - you wouldn't know it has been fixed as it looks perfect. He's got EFTPOS too which is very handy. John is friendly and professional and I'd highly recommend his service. "
