Suitable name for knife sharpening business?

My husband would like to start a local, home based knife sharpening business and I would like some suggestions of creative yet smart business names. We were thinking "Precision Sharpening" or something but it seems abit boring. Also, could you please tell me:

If a mobile sharpening service arrived at your door and offered to sharpen your kitchen knives, scissors and chisels for $4 each, would you consider it?

We are thinking about doing the above mentioned but aren't sure if there is a market for it, especially as we are in a small town, QLD Australia.


What about if we charged $4 for a professional sharpening and $3 to polish up the el cheapos? You can still get a good cutting edge on Woolies brand knives. Even if you just got one of them fully sharpened for good use and not the others?

    What about "The Leading Edge" "Razor's Edge", or "Straight to the Point" for names?

    Would I pay to have$4 to knives sharpened? I might if I had a good set, but mine are cheapies from the supermarket. I do have dressmaking scissors that I might have done though.

    Perhaps you should look to offering your services to professionals requiring it. Like tailors, dressmakers, chefs, etc.

    By the way, I'm Aussie too.

    If it's going to be a legit business then it needs to be registered and although you might have one name in sure to have at least 10 ready.

    Your motto could be "The sharpest knife in the drawer" Your business name could be A Cut Above or Sharpies or Blades of Steel or Knives R Us (I'm running out of could find the rhyming website...just type in rhyming words and you'll find numerous sites)

    Be sure to hit your local fish shop, butcher and hairdresser too. Good Luck! And if this dosen't work out on a full time basis..this would also be an awesome p/t business venture for extra dough. I think your husband will do great!

    G'day, Mates.

    I've friends in QLD.

    I think $4 each may be stiff.

    Names that come to mind:

    "Another Sharp Idea"

    "Get to the Point"

    Good luck.

    I'm a hairstylist and yes I use a mobile guy who does my shears, he charges $15.00. So make sure to stop in at all the local salons too. Best wishes.
