The Edge Sharpening Company

Their Philosophy

Tom and Laura Saxby have owned and operated The Edge Sharpening Company since 2005, and their business philosophy is simple – provide the highest quality sharpening services and the most positive experience they can to their customers on Vancouver Island.

Range of Services

It often takes a bit of explaining before new customers fully appreciate just how much time and money they can save using The Edge Sharpening. Spending some time with Tom or Laura and allowing them to walk through your business operation can often pay huge dividends. More

Customers often don’t realize what can be sharpened (see the extensive list on our Sharpening Services page), and that, in many cases, it can be sharpened many times over before it requires replacing.


Because business integrity is so important to the Saxbys, they will always advise you as to what the most cost-effective approach is. Usually that means sharpening your blade, bit or tool. However, when its useful life is over and sharpening is no longer cost-effective, they’ll tell you. In that case, they can either sell you a new one, or send you to someone who can. More

It is this “putting the customer’s best interests first” attitude that has garnered them the intense loyalty of a steadily growing base of customers on Vancouver Island.

The Environment

Tom and Laura care about the environment, and pride themselves on just how “green” their operation is. Sharpening gets the maximum life out of a tool, blade or bit, and their precision sharpening facility allows you to maximize the number of times you can sharpen a piece before its life is over…and they carefully sort and recycle all metal that can no longer be sharpened.
