Our History

Prairie Sharpening began when Tony Polk first met Jim Wright. A Master Sharpener of almost 20 years, Wright was looking for a successor.

While Tony had some sharpening experience on his own equipment, it took mentoring and training from Jim, for Tony to learn the craft. These two still maintain a friendship and often work together on projects.

PS most recently purchased Hurt’s Sharpening. Roger Hurt has a background in tool and die making prior to his 15 years of sharpening experience.

Tony and Roger collaborate regularly, particularly for larger industrial clients like meat processors.

Our three main areas of specialty services include:

  1. Animal grooming tools- shear & scissors sharpening, clipper blade sharpening, and clipper repair.
  2. Restaurant knives- culinary knife blades for restaurants and home chefs.
  3. Commercial accounts for meat processors and wood working.

Absolutely LOVE this company, I’m a high volume groomer and do a number on my scissors and blades, not only were sharpened amazingly, they were all cleaned immaculately and piled, I will never ever ever trust another sharpener with my equipment you 100% have my business for life!
