You sharpened my cooks knife yesterday at harwich Market. I will be back next week with some more knives. Brilliant. So pleased

Excellent service. I took a pair of long handled shears to Gabor whilst he was at Burcarts corner last week. He sharpened them whilst I went into the shop. It was convenient, affordable, efficient and he also offered helpful advice. I will definitely use his services again and can thoroughly recommend him.

Excellent service. The shears and scissors actually cut now.

Had a home visit with quite a number of items to be sharpened. Very easy to book/message to arrange date & time. Very happy & very professional service.

The sharpener man has just brought my push mower back to life, Thank you so much. Great job, well definitely be using for all my sharing jobs

Gabor came to us and sharpened a range of knives and gardening equipment. He was very professional and did a first class job. Everything is as good as new and perfectly sharp.

Incredible service, messaged just before 5pm on a Friday night and had my knives repaired, sharpened and back before 7pm

Took along a pair of "loppers" and a pair of shears to Gabor at Burcarts and he sharpened them to better than new. Have now been able to cut back my sprawling buddleia. Couldn't get through the thick stems before!! Highly recommended.

Great service and excellent value. Gabor was very helpful and it took no time at all to straighten a slightly bent blade, sharpen & oil 2 pair of shears. I shall definitely be using him again for other items.

Excellent friendly service, cannot believe how sharp our knives and scissors are, very good price, plus good information for aftercare.

Good man and hard worker I am happy with my experience

Fantastic service! My tools and knives are now sharper than when they left the factory. Everything Gabor has done for me is faultless. His service is fast and professional. If you have never had your kitchen knives or tools professionally sharpened, you are in for a treat.

Excellent knife and garden implements sharpening service from Gabor… better than new!

Whoa! Kitchen knives amazingly sharp now!

Friendly, professional service. Would thoroughly recommend

Easy to book and excellent sharpening all done in my driveway in Gabor’s mobile workshop. A few of my neighbours also brought some tools to sharpen. Really pleased with the work and will definitely be calling him again. Thank you Gabor.

The Sharpener sharpened my old rusty lawn mower blade and bought it back to life! Thank you!

Gabor did a really good job sharpening my four garden tools. He was based at Hilltop garden centre at Weeley on a Saturday afternoon. Friendly service too. I really recommend him.

Dropped off various garden shears an axe and my wife’s hairdressing scissors to Gabor who done an amazing job of sharpening them all. Definitely recommend him for a very professional service and wouldn’t hesitate to use his sharpening service again.

Unbelievable sharp ever,my knifes and tools are better then new,very professional ,good service,highly recommended!!!!The best in Essex

I had my knives sharpened today by Gábor and they are brilliant, better than new,very happy with the polite and professional service he provided. Highly recommended, if you need your tools or knifes serviced he is your man. Thank you ever so much Gabor

Really nice and friendly got my knife brilliantly sharp 10/10 would recommend

I took all of my knives to be sharpened. Around 16 or 17 & I was very impressed. You kind of getting used to a dull blade, but when it's sharpened by an expert you realize what you've been missing. Thank you Gabor. I highly recommend this business.

Courteous service, two pairs of shears sharpened to perfection, thank you.

Sharpened garden tools, great service. Will definitely recommend and use again

Wonderful sharp job on our shears, secateurs and knife. Thanks. And this week he also sharpened a cleaver and a mezzaluna - nice job. Thanks.

I dropped off some knives and secateurs in the morning. He had them ready for pick up within a few hours. Would use it again for sure.

What a fabulous service, Gabor was friendly, efficient and full of excellent advice on how to look after my kitchen knives! One thing I have learnt is don’t put them in the dishwasher. Will definitely be using him again.

Brilliant service. The knives look good and are sharp.

Excellent service. Kitchen knives now sharper then when first purchased and, damaged tip also repaired to like new standard. Couldn’t be happier, will certainly use ‘The Sharpener’ again as and when the need arises.

Absolutely 5 star service from Gabor. He sharpened both a pair of garden shears and a much loved and elderly kitchen knife. Garden shears were cleaned of rust and oiled as well. Both tools now a pleasure to use. Thoroughly recommend The Sharpener.

Great job and reasonably priced!

I gave Gabor 15 chisels some had chunks out of them and wouldn’t cut butter let alone wood as I’ve abused them he had them a day now they are razor sharp better than new I would recommend his services to anyone and will definitely use him again

Absolutely brilliant! I was glad to find Gabor as I had many items desperately in need of sharpening. As a keen gardener I like to keep my tools sharp so I had these done, some kitchen knives and scissors and wow what a difference, Gabor has done a marvellous job. My knives were sooo sharp and sliced through the veg effortlessly. I will definitely be using Gabor again and would highly recommend his service.

He came in his mobile workshop and sharpened lots of kitchen knives and garden tools. Everything sharp around the house now works. Once blunt knives slice cleanly; restored and oiled choppers, secateurs and shears (some previously unusable) now cut crisply, rather than mangle and crush. Good advice asked and given on choosing steels and caring for knives and tools.

Lovely man and a great job of my chisels

100% value for money I have used this service for my diner & my home knives and a set of worn out chisels and every time they come back like the day I bought them, if not better. Do not hesitate book your sharpener today and stay away from the diy sharpeners, thank you again for a great service, and love the plaster with the magnet great touch

Very useful advice given on top of an excellent service.

Saw a couple of recommendations for this service and decided to follow it up with some neglected garden tools, chisels and knives. They are now much improved - with some minor repairs and some oiling done where necessary as well. Impressed at the result! Dropped off my items and collected the next day, exactly as arranged. Very pleased to extend the life of some old tools. Many thanks!

Excellent service , took my kirschen chisels to Gabor They have been sharpened so precisely they are better than when new, Super sharp ! And cut like hot knife through butter Can’t recommend enough !!!

No idea how to remove my lawnmower blade..The Sharpener had the right tools there and then, blade is sharp now! Great service!

My kitchen knife is soooo sharp and 2 pairs of gsrden shears actually cut. Very pleased.

Excellent Door step service COVID friendly and compliant Variety of tools & knives sharpened Thank you

Great job on my garden tools. Sharper than when I bought them. Meticulously done with care and attention. Very professional job. Wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

Brilliant service sharpened 5 pairs of scissors cut better than new.

Great local service, amazing man. Köszönöm (Translated by Google) Great local service, amazing man. Thanks

A quick and efficient service. I’m so ready for another year of garden maintenance now! My shears are like new. Thanks Gabor - must have been frozen at Hilltop this morning. Hope you’ve thawed out.

Gabor was really helpful and quick, good service at reasonable prices

Quick and professional work,thank you Gábor

What an amazing service! Not only our knives are much better, but our lawnmower is working perfectly. Highly recommended. Thank you

I saw Gabor and his business advert on mynextdoor and liked what I saw and read. After contacting him, he made an appointment within a few days and arrived exactly when he said he would. I had 6 kitchen knives of various sizes and 2 long garden shears that needed sharpening. The job was done outside of my premises and took around 80 minutes. I am extremely pleased with the service provided by Gabor and the tools and knives are lovely and sharp again. Highly recommended and will use again in the future. Thank you Gabor

Great service from Gabor, sharpened my chisel set. Was very polite, Covid safe and friendly. Would 100% recommend and will be using his Services in the future.

Gabor has sharpened some of my knifes and scissors. The result of the job was amazing. Without any exaggeration they are sharpened than they were new. He gave them back in impressive packing too. I strongly recommend him and his service to everyone.

I was looking for someone local to sharpen my knives when I came across Gabor, who is mobile - perfect! He turned up on time, was very polite and friendly and worked his magic on 13 of my kitchen knives - two of which I thought were beyond repair. I'm very pleased with the service and the price was very reasonable. My knives are better than brand new - thank you Gabor!

Very pleased to have found this company. Did a beautiful job on all my gardening tools. All set for work now

What a find ; Was looking for a a local sharpening company / mobile sharpening services and found this guy. Made contact via the advertised email and then arranged to take them to him on a Sunday ! A couple of hours later, they were ready for collection, yes same day , on a Sunday! I had 5 woodworking chisels sharpened, and quite frankly 4 out of the 5 were very poor: They needed grinding first, before even contemplating getting them sharpened. 5 chisels ground back to health and then sharpened for under 20 quid. words of warning .: Be careful they will come back very sharp. Will definitely use him again, thanks.


Absolutely excellent service! My scissors are now amazing! Reasonable prices too! Highly recommended

Very fast, good value and nice man.

Dropped shears at Burrcarts where van was set up outside. Could have waited while they were being done but opted to collect from The Sharpners house in Harwich road a bit later. So pleased with results, all good as new.

The Sharpener was very pleasant, explained various things about how to keep your knives sharp and what not to do ,, to damage them. My knives are as good as new now and the price to pay for a “brand new sharp” cut was very reasonable.

I will be having my knives sharpened again by The Sharpener. Brilliant

The Sharpener managed to transform a pair of very worn out sheers that my mum had which previously had been my Grandpas. I thought they were done for before but he made them look like new. Great service too!

Just had my Global knives brought back to life. Fantastic job, great service with a smile and a good price. One very happy bunny, who can now slice things without causing muscle ache . Thankyou so much! Highly recommended.

This guy is good at his job I'm the owner of R J Locksmith and of course I use chisel and this guy sharpened mind to the sharpest point ever

Home visit by this lovely man. Sharpened all my knives, scissors and garden loppers. COVID safe precautions. Delighted with service this gentleman offers. Will definitely use again.

Texted this person late Tuesday night got back to me with in half a Hour.. My scissors needed sharpened badly.. and he

Came out the next day and done a amazing Job.. highly recommend. Thank You top man

Great service. Reliable and friendly and I now have super sharp knives and garden tools. I will definitely use again.

Absolutely amazed by the sharpness of my chisels now!

After 6 years of abuse and poor sharpening of my own, I decided to have them sharpened professionally. They are now better than new. Gabor is a knowledgeable craftsman that offers a great service with great value.

Saw this gentleman at Hilltop nursery Weeley this morning and very good service, reasonably priced for my small hand shears

Brilliant job of sharpening my blades only lawn mower, Great friendly service and quick Highly recommended.

Very pleased with the service, my chisels came back sharper than ever! Would highly recommend the sharpener! Quick efficient and superb work! Thanks!

It is a 5* service when you need to cut off anything and the blade is obsolete. We had a lot of useless knives in the household and now they look like new and sharper than ever. Definitely a recommended service

I boxed up a bunch of my knives as per Gabor`s instructions and sent them off to him. A few days later I got them back. I was pretty amazing at the turnaround time, and the knives, the knives! They looked sharp. I grabbed a newly-sharpened chef knife and immediately tried what I’d seen the guy in the YouTube video does. Oh, yeah. Right through paper, not only without resistance but not leaving any roughness either. The cut edges of the paper were perfectly smooth—like I’d used a pair of German scissors. I zipped through a tomato—the first time in years without a serrated knife in my hand. This was as true for the Zepter knives I’d sent him as my Finland-made Marttiini. The bonus is: My never used, tactical/surviving knife comes back incredibly sharp. Now I can wait for the future zombie attack with no stress.

Very polite ,efficient and provide an outstanding service. If you need knifes sharpened Gabor is your man

EXCELLENT SERVICE everything came back razor Sharp will definitely use again. Same day collection next day drop off 10/10

Sharpened three sets of knives for me and they are sharper now than they ever have been. Thanks for getting these done in less than 24 hours. Top service

He picked up our kitchen knives from our home and brought them back the day after. They were better than new! Never had sharper knives. Highly recommended. Reasonably priced, I will use his services again.

Wow, my husband has just come back with secateurs, loopers, chainsaw and shears which are as good as, if not better than new. Fantastic service at very reasonable prices. He’ll be back with more garden tools and kitchen knives to sharpen.

Outstanding service. Knives were only cheap ones so I didn't expect them to stay sharp for long. However, over a month later they are still sharper than when they were new! Gabor said that there is a difference between sharpening a knife and reshaping the edge of the blade. And it's so true! He did not just sharpen them, he reshaped them. Wow. I am very impressed. Worth every penny!

Excellent work!...I have never had sharper knives in my lifeHighly recommended

Absolutely first class service, no issues whatsoever. Will use again when required with no hesitation. I have a thinning scissor which was originally not good and he could even fix that. Keep up the good work!

Gabor came to collect our knives and brought them back the next day. They were as new - he’s done a great job. Would happily use his service again. He’s friendly, professional and the results were excellent.

Gabor did an excellent job on all of our kitchen knives. Very happy with the results. Actually, these are much sharper than when they were new.

If you want your knifes ready for Xmas, just contact him. 100% COVID-19 SAFE service. Thank you. Will use this service again.

Great service today from Gabor. I had a number of gardening tools and kitchen knives to be sharpened. He parked on my drive and set to work; kitchen knives are super sharp and I can’t wait to get out in the garden to try out the much-improved garden tools. Prices very reasonable, I’ll be booking again and can recommend without hesitation Mr Sharpener.

We had a job lot of sharpening done this morning. Excellent service, really friendly guy. Thoroughly recommend him; I even had a couple of tools sharpened that I inherited from my dad that now look the best I’ve ever seen them!

Thank you Gabor.

Excellent service a true professional All items now like new ready for Christmas
