Tool Sharpening

Park Tool cutters, facers, reamers and taps are made using only the finest materials and are precision 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 most 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 cutters with the completed order form to Park Tool. Send only the cutter. Do not send the handle.
  3. Cutters are sharpened each Wednesday and will be returned via you choice of UPS Ground, 3-Day, 2-Day or overnight shipping. Indicate shipping instructions on the Sharpening Order Form.

Important information

  • We are able to sharpen PARK TOOL brand cutters only.
  • Because the sharpening process affects the diameter and/or length of the cutter, there are a limited number of reamers we do not sharpen: 738, 744, 756S, 761S, 788, 789, and 799. We also do not sharpen small metric frame taps, pedal taps, cable cutters, fork dies, or pizza cutter blades.
  • Additional charges may apply when sharpening excessively worn or damaged cutters. Some cutters may be too worn or damaged to sharpen.
  • This service is for U.S. addresses. Contact us to inquire about service to Canada.
  • Return shipping insurance is available. See Sharpening Order Form for details.

Optimization

Production cutters are designed to work well on all common metals in the bike industry. Our standard sharpening service duplicates our production specifications. Nearly all our cutters can be sharpened to optimize performance for a specific metal (steel, aluminum, titanium) for an additional charge (see pricing below). Note that, after sharpening, an optimized cutter should be used ONLY on the metal for which it is optimized. Contact us for more information on optimizing your cutter(s).

Taps: $10 additional charge each
Facers: $10 additional charge each
Reamer/facer combo: $15 additional charge each
Crown race cutter: $10 additional charge each
