We Sharpen Knives the Right Way
The key to professional knife sharpening is understanding nuance. Just as many locks and keys are uniquely different and each requires a uniquely attuned professional eye, very few knives are exactly alike. For example, some knives are manufactured using a softer metal than others, depending on where they’re manufactured or the purpose they’re used for.
The amount of steel or carbon in a blade can impact how quickly the knife dulls as well as the durability of the knife when sharpened at a certain angle. This is why pocket knives and hunting knives are able to cut through much denser materials than their culinary counterparts.
The blades we sharpen at Minneapolis Lock and Key include:
- Hunting knives
- Hatchets and axes
- Kitchen knives
- Pocket knives
- Detachable scissors
- Garden shears
- Straight razors
When a knife is sharpened correctly, it will last longer. One of the most common mistakes knife owners make when sharpening their knives is to sharpen the knife at a more acute angle than the knife needs. This causes the blade’s integrity to become compromised and reduces durability, especially when you’re cutting through something with more density.
Our experienced knife sharpeners draw on craftsmanship and expert knowledge of blade material, manufacturing, and design. We understand that different knives require different angles and approaches depending on the type of edge, metal composition, and thickness of the individual knife. Contact us today to get started!
Restaurant & Foodservice Knife Sharpening
When you’re in the middle of a busy lunch shift, the last thing you need is a dull knife. Having your knives sharpened professionally will help to prolong their lifespan, saving your restaurant money in the long run.
Every chef appreciates the value of a perfect blade edge. That’s because food prepared with a razor-sharp blade looks better when plated. Giving your staff the right tools to do their job well means you’ll have less food waste and happier guests. When you have your kitchen knives professionally sharpened, you’ll get the benefit of completely standardized equipment quality, and this, in turn, means more standardized food quality.
Dull edges can increase the chance of food-borne illness and injured employees.
