Top Sharpening related questions

Sharpening services can be done on-site (e.g. your home or restaurant) or in a workshop. Your Tasker can go to you, bringing along their sharpening tools. As another option, your Tasker can collect your tools or knives. After sharpening your items, your Tasker can then deliver them back to you. A third option is to wrap and secure your knife in a box with bubble wrap. Then, send the knife to your Tasker.
No, honing is different from sharpening. Sharpening involves grinding a blade’s edge against a sharpening stone. Meanwhile, honing is the process of maintaining an already sharp edge. You can request honing or sharpening services on Airtasker.
Specialists sharpen lawn tools or garden tools with a file, whetstone, or sharpening stone. Your Tasker may use one method to sharpen pruners, shears, and loppers. Holding a tool firmly in place, a specialist passes the sharpener over the blade’s edge.
Yes, some specialists may be willing to de-rust your tools. Your Tasker may use steel wool, crumpled tin foil, or a brush to scrub off the rust. Once the tools are rust-free, your Tasker can proceed to sharpen the blades. Attach a photo of your rusty tools for restoration so that Taskers can advise you on the best materials and methods to restore your tools.
Yes, feel free to provide your own sharpening tools. Airtasker is also the place to go if you need someone to do the tedious work. Sharpening tools include whetstones, files, sharpening steel, and electric knife sharpeners. Specify what tools you have in your listing. Taskers can then advise you on the best tools to use. They may recommend buying a different tool or offer to bring their own equipment.
Blade sharpening services can take as little as 10 minutes. But the working time depends on the condition of the blade and the type of tool they are sharpening. A chainsaw or very dull knife could take up to 20-30 minutes to sharpen. Experience and skill can also factor into a specialist’s working time. Post your sharpening request today to find rated, reviewed, and trusted specialists near you.
