Carbide saw blade sharpening
DeKalb Saw and Tool sharpens tungsten carbide tipped circular saw blades. We service all brands of industrial woodworking tools and table saw blades, including Forrest. We sharpen every variety of circular saw blade, dado set and groover, preserving original specifications. Our approach is minimally invasive to extend the overall life span of saws. Circular saw blades can be sharpened over a dozen times. A sharpened table saw blade can be at least as good as new or superior, depending on how good it originally was.
Tool resharpening has traditionally been among the most cost-effective, frugal ways a business can cut production expenses. Nowadays it's also seen as the green way to conserve energy and reduce wasted materials. In today's world it's smarter than ever to keep a watchful eye on the bottom line while maintaining excellent quality control.
Knife sharpening service
The balance or feel of a culinary knife in your hand is an individual artistic preference. It's only natural that diverse chefs will prefer either German or Japanese knives, carbon or stainless steel knives for different needs. We sharpen each cutting tool at an angle suiting its unique purpose. Very little metal is lost, except to correct a broken tip, nick, concave bow or protruding bolster. The artisan will hone it flat, give it a strong micro bevel, then strop it to a smooth, brilliant mirror edge. You can leave your abrasive steel in the kitchen drawer.
We deliver your own chef's cutlery to you, not a knife rental exchange. You keep ownership of your culinary instruments. You don't have to be locked into a contract renting knives that you don't really need all the time. We understand why you might not want to be tied to a cutlery rental lease if it doesn't fit your budget. DeKalb sharpening service is an uncomplicated, affordable alternative to knife rental. We can pick up and deliver weekly at your restaurant, or to meet your seasonal catering needs.
We put a razor edge on woodworking knives, chisels and wood carving gouges. Our services include resharpening and balancing of high speed steel planer and jointer knife sets.
