How to Wrap your Knives for Mail-in Sharpening Service

Everything that we sharpen locally can also be sharpened with our Mail-In program.

Chefs, stylists, groomers, barbers, veterinarians, surgeons, quilters and homeowners send their tools to us with confidence that they will receive prompt and professional service.

Wrap your items individually in newspaper, bubble wrap or as shown below and place more packing material around and between the items to insure that they will not move around during shipment and cannot pierce the box.  Please do not put corks on the tips of your knives when shipping. Invariably, the tips end up bent, despite your effort to protect them. Use whatever means you can to ensure the tips do not penetrate the sides of the box! This is very important. Please insure the package for the replacement value of the contents.

Please provide us with a list of the items, your contact information and any specific instructions about sharpening or repairs.  Keep a copy and place a copy in your package.

Please send your package to the following address:

Sharp Again
322 Village Glen Drive
Arroyo Grande, CA 93420

We recommend shipping with a company that provides a tracking number such as UPS or Fedex.

Return shipping via ups or usps standard ground unless otherwise requested.
