Lamar Sharpening is the premier knife and shear whetstone sharpener in North Carolina.

I’d like to send out a thank you to my customers .

I also want to thank them for having the patience and understanding with me on the turn around times on my services.

This year has been challenging due to medical issues.

It has been tough but knowing I’m letting down people who have entrusted me with their valuable (sentimentally or monetarily) possessions is the toughest. I do treat each one as if my Grandparents had left it to me. For many, that is the actual case.

I am now up and working on your knives. Thank You for the kind thoughts and wishes. I will be in the forge, drop by for a glass of Sweet Tea.
