Sharpening as Recycling

Hello again.

   People talk about "going green" a lot these days. Having your items sharpened instead of replacing them is a great way to save money, and landfill space.   When we hear that folks throw away and replace items like scissors, chainsaw chains, or kitchen knives when they go dull, we cringe. A chainsaw chain ($35.00 new) can be resharpened many times for $6.00 per sharpening. It can be recycled when it is too far gone to sharpen.
  Scissors, knives, and other "cheap" items can also be sharpened inexpensively, and last a very long time.  Yes, you can buy a pair of scissors for $1.00 at the Dollar Store, but when it is dull, will you just toss it in the trash? The same goes for lawn mower blades, pruners, and hand saws.  They can be sharpened. and then recycled.
The next time you are frustrated with a dull tool, don't throw it away, call us or another sharpener. When we say it is dead, THEN you can recycle it or throw it away.  Keep it sharp and safe.

Never A Dull Moment!
