Local craftsman brings Â?Quick, Simple and to the PointÂ? sharpening services to mailboxes nationwide.

– Ken Leonard of Mr. Leonard’s Sharpening Service LLC announces the mail-order availability of his professional knife sharpening services at Mr. Leonard’s “Quick, Simple and to the Point” services combine the convenience of the Internet, two-day sharpening and priority mail with the quality and knowledge of a professional craftsman.

Mr. Leonard explained, “I created the website to answer the question, ‘Where do I get my knives sharpened by somebody I can trust?’ Over the years, we have witnessed the demise of the local craftsman, the person who provided specialized skills for the services we needed. The site brings the local knife sharpener back to town and available across the nation.”

Premium knife brands like JA Henckels, Wusthoff, Sabatier, and Global are readily available across the country, but according to Mr. Leonard, it is not uncommon to see hundreds of dollars of this premium cutlery sitting dull and not performing to standard in the average kitchen. These brands are made of stainless steel and other metals that require specials skills and equipment to be sharpened correctly. As such, Mr. Leonard has invested in purchasing, designing and perfecting the necessary equipment for sharpening the premium brands, and even sharpens serrated bread and tomato knives in each individual arch.

“Research clearly shows that a sharp knife is safer and easier to use,” said Mr. Leonard. “A dull knife will slip off food, require more force to work, cut you worse and mash the food instead of cutting it. The results are shredded meat, cut fingers, and crushed vegetables which both wastes food and makes it less appetizing. Sharp knives are easier to use, stay in contact with the food, need less pressure to work, and give a clean cut that keeps flavors in.”

Mr. Leonard’s website at utilizes the convenience and ease of the internet to make his timeless craftsman skills available across the nation. Customers order a specially-designed Knife Shipping Package from the website, complete with return postage, special foam liner and shipping box, sending their collection safely to Mr. Leonard for sharpening. With shipping and Mr. Leonard’s two-day sharpening service, customers should receive their knives back in approximately a week.
