Profiling options in the UK/Europe

Recommended Posts

I've got tired of the uneven and inconsistent sharpening that often comes from my local shop (and the only place that I can get myself to without taking a day off work), as the blade's profile itself now is completely off compared to how it came stock, and doesn't appear to be intentionally profiled.

The other concern I have is that I have two pairs of Bauer holder STEP Blacksteels, which are now a limited commodity, and so am looking to have them re-profiled, knowing that if they are mangled up there isn't much a store could do to replace them, even if they wanted to.

Are there places in the UK/EU that would be able to do this, and what should I expect the cost to be? I'm not looking to tinker massively, just "reset" for the start of the season before my team's SPARX machines arrive to keep them as they are. I realize the majority of people on this site are in NA, but hopefully some of the info would carry over the Atlantic.

I’m waiting for our ProSharp machine to arrive after which we will launch a mail in profiling service (out of the Netherlands). End of next month we should go live with our website.

I profile my runners with Greg at Puckstop Sheffield. They have a Prosharp there. And Blackstone to sharpen the blades if you need FBV.

Puckstop in Sheffield have a Sparx I believe. 

This has been the way I went with this. It's frustrating that Puckstop don't state all their services and options online, but they were very happy to explain the services they can do once I sent them an email. Thanks both.
