Sharpening Your Own Knives Vs Professional Knife Sharpening


Budget vs. Business

  We understand the importance of making a budget and doing everything possible to stay within that budget. We also understand how busy you are. From the moment you go to work, you’re inundated with demands for your time. Phone calls, emails, people that need to see you, inventory, ordering, problem solving and you haven’t even begun preparing your kitchen for another busy day. The last thing you want to do is add another chore to your plate.  

Is it worth it?

 If you’re considering a knife sharpening service (or thinking about cancelling our knife service to save some money), here are some things to consider first: 

How much will you really save? Let’s consider some of the expenses:

  Cost of:   - Knife sharpening machine or equipment and maintenance

- Inconsistency using an electric knife sharpener

 - New knife inventory: (purchases are on-going due to damaged, lost and worn knives)

 - Paying an employee to sharpen the knives – daily or weekly

 - Additional safety risks of working with blade edges

 - Employee’s time to sharpen removes them from their function.

Now consider that for one low price, Grindstone;

  - Provides your kitchen with a custom knife rental and sharpening program

 - Delivers knives sharpened by a skilled professional using state of the art equipment 

- Proactive replacement of worn knives

 - Replacement of broken and lost knives

 - Sharpening your knives onsite adds an unnecessary risk of injury liability. Just one medical claim could eliminate any savings.  

Cutting Costs has its place...

But not when it means adding another chore to your never ending list of things that must be done. Our low delivery minimum of $25 is easily met.  Let Grindstone Sharpen & Supply Ltd. Co. do what we do best, and make your life easier!
