Learn to be a self-employed professional sharpener with our hands on 5-day course.
We will teach you how to professionally sharpen:
Plus lots more.
You will be taught in our purpose-built Sharpening Training Centre using the latest equipment. Each student has their own large work space, with their own tools and machines, with an absolute minimum of 2 metres of free space from any other person in any direction.
In 2018, and again in 2022, we went to America to visit the Headquarters of both Wolff Industries and The Edge Pro to receive intensive training from the sharpening machine manufacturers. Meeting these high standards is a requirement to be become an approved trainer. We met those high standards, so we can now proudly say we are both authorised and approved to provide sharpening training for both manufacturers. You will be taught how to sharpen using factory approved methods, having full confidence that you are being taught correctly. Plus, we will provide ongoing support for as long as you need it.
We teach you on the same machines that the trainer uses day in, day out, in his own sharpening business. They are all proven industry recognised sharpening machines used by professional sharpeners throughout the world.
Wolff Industries and The Edge Pro produce the sharpening machines that we will use for the training. We are the sole UK warranty centre for both companies, so if you purchase your machines from us, we can also repair them very quickly if ever the need arises.
All the sharpening machines and supplies you require to start your business are held in stock and are available to purchase. You will be given assistance starting your new business venture.
Our sister business, The Sharpening Service offers a sharpening mobile and postal service for both domestic and commercial customers. We travel to Bath, Bristol, Taunton, Frome, West Super Mare, Trowbridge, Melksham, Chippenham, Wells and all surrounding areas.
We have a fully fitted mobile sharpening van, as well as our sharpening workshop. Examples of what we sharpen include kitchen knives, dog grooming scissors, hairdressing scissors, dressmaking scissors, dog or horse clipper blades, gardening and woodworking tools.
