Our artisans train longer and more extensively because we are passionate about giving you an edge better than the factory grind that came on your tool. When you come to Moleta, you are guaranteed to get a skilled artisan every single time. Why throw something away when it can be better than brand new at a fraction of the cost?
Most sharpening services offer a factory flat grind, but there are two specialty bevels that last longer and cut finer; convex and concave. At Moleta we ONLY offer specialty grinds. Here's why:
At Moleta Artisinal Sharpening we offer the most durable convex grind lasting 3-4 times as long as other sharpening services and removing less steel. This is ideal for items like kitchen knives, gardening tools, scissors, and more, but can only be achieved by hand and it takes more training than you think.
Most sharpening services available produce a flat bevel via machine grinding or using a jig to hold the blade at a certain angle. At Moleta we train our sharpeners to do the same thing by eye and feel which allows us to press into the slack of the belt and produce a convex bevel which lasts 3-4 times as long as a flat grind while removing less steel. The reason you don't see this more often is that it takes several years and an artistic eye to master.
And wait! There is still another benefit to this style of sharpening.
Broken tips? Gouges and nics? No problem! We can fix them so quickly and easily that we don't even charge you extra. Serrations? Don't make us laugh. They don't slow us down. No extra charge there either.
Our convex grind yields an incredibly sharp blade with a durable cutting edge suitable for everything from your favorite kitchen knives to axes and lawnmower blades. Your blades with stay sharp longer, meaning you get more use from your knives and tools before resharpening.
Let Moleta sharpen your dull blades, and discover the difference a convex grind can make on your knives, gardening tools, and scissors.

At Moleta Shears we offer precision concave, convex beveling, and true flat honing with mirror finish. This is ideal for hair shears, thinners, and texturizers, but not all shear sharpening techniques are created equal.
Our shear specialists use the highly coveted and rarely found, Rapid Edge Sharpening system. The system is water cooled with five honing heads and a patented jig capable of producing angle accuracy within 1°. Every shear is disassembled and cleaned. Then each blade is sharpened independently by hand before being reset, balanced, and adjusted. Last, we do a final inspection of all moving parts with additional cleaning and lubrication.
High quality shears feel like new and your economy shears will literally be better than new when our artisans are finished with them.
Our goal is simple; to provide the best sharpening and the best shears available today.
