Training for Professional Sharpeners

hands-on sharpening training The Sungold teaching philosophy is to equip each student with both the skills and the tools to tackle any kind of professional sharpening job with confidence and skill that keeps clients coming back again and again.

Taught in small classes of one to five students by Master Sharpener Jason Pintel, our sharpening courses are designed to teach you every aspect of the fine art of sharpening and upon completion to equip you with the skills, tools, and business know-how necessary to work whenever and wherever you want.

Our Method

At the heart of Mr. Pintel's instruction method, is the art of sharpening the Japanese style shear totally by hand without power equipment. To our knowledge, this aspect of hand sharpening is taught by no one else in the world.

professional sharpening skills Yes, you will learn how to use power equipment properly, but it is only the true sharpening professional who can produce a beautiful hand done edge with total control of the work by the stroke of the hand. But more importantly, learning this skill will give you a thorough understanding of the physics of sharpening as well as the knowledge of what a fine edge is.

This may not sound important, but without this knowledge, in the hands of unskilled technicians expensive shears and knives are ruined every day by the improper use of power equipment - with little or no understanding of the art of sharpening, they proceed to remove most of the blade with improper angles and excessive speed of the abrasive on the steel.

When you complete Mr. Pintel's training you will have the skill and confidence to handle any sharpening project with the quality that keeps your customers satisfied and coming back for more. This is the Sungold Advantage when you choose Sungold for your professional training.
