Our pitifully neglected Sabatiers wouldn't have cut our 4 year old's play-doh - but thanks to your superb TLC they now boast razor sharp edges and we''re delighted! Super fast and friendly service, very efficient, and really helpful advice on the purchase of a new steel. Will definitely be passing your details out to friends and family.

Just a quick thank-you. I’ve had my knives back for two weeks now and am currently sporting about ten tiny cuts on my left index finger after halving olives on to a pizza without using a chopping board.

Tom Thank you so much for the expert sharpening of my two Henckels Four Star 10" / 260mm Hollow Edge Slicing Knives. My chef son told me to replace them at £80 each (Henckel's price), but you have saved me nearly £150 and they are as good as new. I'll spread the word Regards Don and Mair

Dorata Paluch - London SE
Dear Tom Thank you for sharpening our knives and herb cutter (which you said were in a very bad state) and returning so quickly. You brought them back to tip top condition. Perhaps you could advise me on what is the best knife sharpener to use in the kitchen on a regular basis so that I don't get them back into such a mess again. Do you supply them? I will definitely continue to use your service in the future and will recommend you to friends and family. Many thanks Dorota

My knives are brilliant and I can’t believe the difference in the bread knife which I didn’t even think needed sharpening! Am being so careful with them all now and making sure I only cut on ‘knife friendly’ surfaces. Thanks your very good service.

Hi Tom Your service was recommended in last Saturday's ''Guardian'' so I packed up my severely blunt Sabatier knives and posted them to you on Monday. I was really surprised to get them back within the week and they do really look brand new and have passed the tomato test easily. Will be sending you my dressmaking scissors very soon. Am happy for you to post the above comments on your web site and will be recommending you to friends and family. Many thanks for your excellent service.

Ian Blackman Gloucester
Dear Tom I can confirm that the knife has been received ok, and looks (and cuts) as good as new. When my "helpful" child had finished smashing up a bone with it, I thought the resultant damage to the blade was irreparable, but thankfully you proved me wrong. Hopefully I won't need to use your services again, but I won't hesitate in recommending you to anyone else. Best regards, Ian.

J Billinger - Burnley Lancashire
Dear Tom, I received my knives back yesterday and I am very pleased. Not only are they now razor sharp but the unsightly scratches caused by my amateur sharpening efforts have been removed. I did not request this but it was done anyway - a service which I find brilliant. My query on a return date was answered promptly and courteously and the knives were received extremely well packed. Many thanks for an all-round excellent service which I will most certainly use again in the future. Kind regards, Jeremy

I didn't really believe they'd come back to us so quickly, or that your sharpening would make such a difference, but they the time-scale was great, and they're like completely new knives! so thank you again. (And I really appreciated your quick and helpful reply to my query before I sent them off as well) Julia Edward

K Lobo London
Re Can I Make My Knives As Good As New? (Saturday Guardian December 8), I had the same problem and was told my knives had to be reground. I trawled the internet and eventually found, which sent back my five sharpened knives within a few days for less than the price of one new knife. Their standard is that a sharp knife will slice a tomato without moving the knife - and it worked. I was delighted. Tom says - We must be doing something right!
Kim - Canada
Hi Tom I cancelled my emails but it’s nothing personal cause you are the best. Sadly I moved to Canada in 2010 so it’s no longer viable for me to send you my knives! But there is no one as good as you here so it’s my loss. Best wishes. Kim

Dear Tom, Thanks very much for returning my knives and scissors so promptly. I hadn’t realised how blunt I’d let everything get – even though I have a knife sharpener it didn’t do the same superb job that you do. All my knives are super sharp. Thanks again. I shall recommend you to all my friends.

Dear Tom You recently sharpened a damaged Henckel knife for me. I just wanted to thank you for a very good job done. This knife was a present from a dear friend and I was worried it would never be the same again. I am also very pleased with the two Victorinox knives I bought from you. They arrived so promptly and do a good job. I will be sending you more knives to sharpen for me soon. Many thanks Patricia Harbottle

Phil Simpson - Belfast
I''m a difficult customer and I know that, regardless of this I took Tom up on his price beater challenge on a knife that he didn''t stock normally.The other online price I''d seen the knife for sale at was quite low and to be honest I didn''t think he could match it or may not even want to as it wasn't a regular stock item for prosharp, well he was courteous throughout my many questions and queries and came up trumps with a price and speedy delivery. I was very pleasantly surprised just how efficient he and prosharp were, no point in shopping anywhere else now, prosharp does it all. Phil

Philip Wright - Newnham
I own a set of 6 Global knives all of which I use regularly and one in particular daily. As I have owned them for some time I recently felt that it would be a good idea to have them sharpened and so I took them to my local kitchen supply shop to do this. Unfortunately shortly after getting the knives back I found that they became blunt quickly and even though I sharpen each knife every time I use it the knives would not keep a sharp blade nor pass the tomato test. Having read Rose Princes article some time ago in the Daily Telegraph about Prosharp I thought I would give them a try and what a result. Even with extra work required to repair some damage made by the kitchen shop the knives came back ultra sharp and very quickly. This service and the turnaround time was very impressive and as a result I will most certainly do this again next year. In addition at 4 per knife, for knives that can retail at upwards of 100, this is great value for money especially when the knives come back just like new.. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this service to any of my friends. Many thanks Tom for doing such a great job. Philip Wright, Newnham

Stuart Lea - Congleton Cheshire
It''s not often that companies exceed my expectations, but you certainly have done. I had a range of knives, some of which I''d tried to sharpen (badly) and some were one step away from being binned and Tom turned them all around (even the one which I''d broken part of the tip off!). £20 to have 6 knives back to pristine condition is a bargain that I''ll be using again and will certainly be recommending to others....A job well done and turned around in a week. Thanks.

Susan Hathaway - Northumberland
Excellent service - knives and pinking shears back with me less than a week after I posted them off. Knives re-pointed and have a very keen edge to them and shears work where they previously did not. Good job done! Susan Hathaway PS - My knives were minus their tips for safety reasons and I would have happily had them re-edged without re-tipping had I been asked, but then I didn''t say anything about them when I sent them so mea culpa!! I'll just keep them out of the children's way! Cheers, Susan. Tom says --- Whoops! If you had told me I could have put a rounded safety tip on the knives. However pleased you are happy and your custom and feedback is valued. Best Regards Tom

Dear Tom, Just a quick note to say a "big" thank you for dealing with our awful knives. Not only were we shocked with the quick service and return but when we tried the "tomato test" they won hands down!! Glided through the toms like butter - marvellous! Our only problem now is watching our fingers! Great service you provide - feel proud! Regards, Sylvia

Hello Tom Belated thanks for returning the Globals. I cannot believe what a transformation you have made. I am sure that they must be twice as sharp as when they left the factory.
