Tool Sharpening

Park Tool cutters, facers, reamers and taps are precision made using only the finest materials and are machined to exact standards. The use of dull taps, facers and reamers can result in damage to the frame and to the tools.  Cutters that are regularly sharpened are faster, safer and easier to use and produce better results.   The Park Tool Sharpening Service will sharpen Park Tool brand cutters back to factory specifications.

Here’s how the Park Tool Sharpening program works:

  1. Download and print the Sharpening Order Form, fill in the applicable information
  2. Send your tools with the completed worksheet to Park Tool
  3. Tools are sharpened and return shipped on Wednesdays. Plan your shipment to Park Tool accordingly
  4. Tools are sent to you via UPS. Indicate shipping instructions on the Sharpening Order Form (overnight, 2 day, 3 day, ground service, insurance)  Send only the cutter or reamer, do not send back handle.
