Bruce, Torquay - Hairdresser
I can thoroughly recommend Richard  who has sharpened my hairdressing scissors on more than one occasion. He provides an excellent service and takes the utmost pride and care in his work. Richard services the scissors  whilst sharpening them. If you have any questions he will answer them honestly and carefully. I am so pleased with his work that I make a special visit to Exeter each time to get my scissors sharpened and recommend  Richard to any  of my freinds and colleagues without hesitation. Thankyou Richard, I look forward to seeing you again.

Thankyou Richard for sharpening the scissors and for supplying a pair you have renovated. The scissors are going to help to set up sewing and hairdressing projects in Yala, Kenya. The people there are desperately poor and this will help them to feed their children.
A special thanks to Sarah the barber of Crediton, who generously donated 4pr. hairdressing scissors to the project via Exeter Sharpening.

Heather, Exeter - Gardener
The tools are all marvelous and work really well. The garden looks so much better. Regards Heather.

Naomi, Tiverton - Hairstylist
Was amazed at how sharp my scissors were after collecting them, they wouldn't cut through hair and now it feels like I have a brand new pair of professional scissors. Very professional personally and great hospitality, would recommend to anyone. I haven't had my scissors sharpened in 8 years, now I feel I can work again with ease and confidence. Very impressed, see you in 12 weeks for a re-sharp. Thanks

Martin, Devon - Hospital professional
Just wanted to say how impressed I am with my knives after they were sharpened.
I bought some good quality knives as I wanted sharp blades that stayed sharp. I work in a surgical role in a hospital, so know the value of a keen blade. I'm convinced that after Richard sharpened my knives they're sharper than when I bought them, money well spent, thank you.

Mark, Hemel Hempstead
Just sat down after our sunday meal of roast beef. Excellent, complimented by the quality of the carving, which was only possible by the excellence of the knife blade-hand washed in soapy water prior to use. My very best wishes to you. 

Sarah, Jersey - Dog groomer
My scissors are just great, thanks.

Laura, Exeter
I've just used the knives and they're better than new!! Thank you so much, I will be recommending you to everyone, see you in 6 months. All the best, Laura.

Chris, Chudleigh - Hospital professional
My straight edge razor. It's absolutely spot-on and providing a great shave, yet again, with no drag or razor burn at all.

Andrew, Exeter - Operating theatre professional
Found an old knife that belonged to my father, but was ruined. Richard restored this beautifully, keeping its old character and giving it a very sharp edge. Thank you.

Translation: For a long time we wondered what to do with our old and treasured dinner knives, which were blunt. In September 2015 we came to England and visited Richard and Caroline, bringing our knives for repair. With his sharpening expertise Richard restored the knives, which now cut as new. We are both amazed and recommend this firm in the highest order.

Allan, Exeter - Chef                                                                                               
Thanks again for doing a superb job sharpening my knives.

Alan, Moretonhampstead / London - Former Chef
Hi, you sharpened my knives earlier today which I'm using now,   just wanted you to know I'm speechless. Thankyou.

Scott, Newton Abbot - Straight Razor and Wood Plane blade
Exeter sharpening responded to my query within the hour! I'm amazed how sharp my razor is now. Richard also suggested that I get my own whetstones in order to maintain the blade edge regularly.
Small wood plane blade - the blade is sharper now than when I bought it new, leaving the wood surface as smooth as a glass top.
Great guy and brilliant work, cheers mate 10/10.

Wow my kitchen knives had a new lease of life at a competative price. Better than having to replace them all! I was unaware of how blunt they previously were. Thank you Richard for your considered and careful approach as well as the advice on future care of my set of kitchen knives.
