Closed to New Customers


I am no longer taking new sharpening customers. Booked with other work and guided by my aspiration of becoming a toolmaker, I would like to take Rathkamp Tool in a new direction.

I can still sharpen for past customers, and will do my best to maintain quick turnaround.

I will keep this domain (www.rathkamptool.com) for my business; if you want to see what I'm up to in the coming years.

Best,
Dylan R.
