Training for Professional Sharpeners
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
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.
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.
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.
