About RW Sharpening & Services

In 1986, the journey of RW Sharpening began when a professional dog grooming salon was in search of a dependable sharpener. Since then, RW Sharpening has expanded its services to include sharpening salon tools, garden equipment, woodworking tools, fabric-cutting implements, kitchen wares, and much more!

Under the leadership of Suzy Lankin, a second-generation sharpener, RW Sharpening has evolved into a family-owned and operated business. With pride, they have been serving customers across Canada for over 30 years.
