Well I messaged A1 regards sharpening some kitchen knives. They were of a reasonable quality and I have looked after them and sharpened them myself.I must say I have never had knifes so sharp.I could not believe how sharp they are. The service and pleasant way I was advertised to look after my knifes and maintain there sharpness Was very useful.. I would recommend any one to use this rather unique service…  Highly recommended and very knowledgeable information regards looking after your sharp knifes.


Thank you Martin for a fantastic, efficient service! Same day turnaround which is brilliant and at a very reasonable price.. blades are now cutting like new! I will definitely recommend A1 Sharpeners and be using you again.


A1 Sharpening fantastic service, contacted Martin to ask about clipper sharpening . Sharpened while I waited. 3 sets . What a service no hassle with driving a distance and then having them sent away.


Service was really fast and efficient. Great person to deal with straight forward and honest. Def use again.


Hired the quiet clippers to try on my very flighty mare they are amazing! Barley hear them ideal for nervous horses have booked in again to get my other horse clipped, highly recommend.


I hired some clippers today: Brilliant friendly service, I have never hired clippers before but will definitely be hiring these again! Lovely Lister clippers with sharp blades!, not too heavy or noisy and didn’t get hot so we’re perfect for my daughter’s young pony. I have used several different types of clippers and found these were the only pair to never leave a line, very smart finish.

    My mother has a clutch of shears and long handled cutters which she has had for years. She is ruthless in the garden and wields them as though they are weapons of war. Needless to say they become not only blunt but hideously deformed and bent out of shape as a result.
    So Martin and A1 has become an integral part of their longevity and well-being.

    Thank you, Martin, and all the best with your back!

    I just had all my chisels and planes (4) sharpened by Martin and all I can say is wow they’re brilliant. I’m a time served carpenter and I can sharpen my tools, but nowhere near this good.
