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.
Typical for Knives: $1.70 per inch of blade
Don’t hesitate to email a photo of tools to be sharpened if you would like a cost estimate
Included with returned knives is the invoice and a prepaid self-addressed envelope for payment.
The average cost per knife is $10 in a set of kitchen knives. Scissors average $14. We care greatly about our customers and do our best to avoid surprises. Precision instruments are charged based on labor and materials.
Rathkamp Tool personally seeks continuous improvement in skill, knowledge, and workmanship. With our work so close to heart, mutual trust is essential:
We guarantee all items returned will cut with greater ease than they did new. If they do not, you don’t have to pay.
Occasionally a tool will be too damaged to economically restore to original function; this is resolved on a case-by-case basis.
