About Us

My name is Brian Barron. I have been a custom knife maker for 25+ years. I have learned this old-time trade from many different makers throughout the country. My love for knives grew as my Dad and I would collect and trade knives when I was a child. He showed me the proper handling and care needed to be a responsible knife owner. He also showed me how to sharpen and maintain an edge on knives and tools.

During my tenure as a knife maker I have professionally sharpened knives, scissors and tools for a wide range of customers. What I discovered is it is hard for my customers to take time out to bring their knives to my shop for sharpening. This is why I started Barron’s Mobile Sharpening Service in which I and all my sharpening tools go directly to your home to sharpen your items on site. 

My prices are very affordable, often less than it costs to take your knives to a local sharpener. And being a knife maker I am also an abrasive specialist, always using the proper abrasives and never taking excess material off an edge that I sharpen. You will be satisfied to know I have entered my work in many competitions and won many awards for craftsmanship and quality.

From Wayne: Brian is a five-star pro who represents the neighborly values we treasure at Blueberry. He is a true craftsman, whose work becomes much more accessible through locally grouped events.

What’s Next:

When you join a group event, Brian will call you to assess the scope of the job, answer your questions, and schedule a time for your service.

I definitely recommend Barron’s Mobile Sharpening Services. Brian was super easy to deal with arranging a time to stop by. He is really friendly, talks you through his service and what he thinks needs doing to the knives you need reconditioning.

He worked on my chef’s knives and a couple of vintage chisels, and they now have edges honed to a ‘better than new’ level.

Will definitely be using him again. Thank you Brian, for your fantastic service.

We used Brian to sharpen our kitchen knives.  What a life saver.  We were on the verge of buying  a whole new set of knives as our old ones were not doing the job anymore.  A friend had recommended Brian so we gave him a call.  He was professional and very detailed in his service.  Our knives are like new and I highly recommend using Barron’s Mobile Sharpening Service!
