It's been over 3.5 yrs since we raised our sharpening prices and the time has come to do so again. I've also been considering making some adjustments to our pricing structure to make it easier to understand as well as more fair across the board.
An example of what I needed to fix was how we were charging the same price for a 150mm petty as for a 240mm gyuto, that's neither fair to me or the customer. Also, the pricing I had on single bevel work was way out of line with the actual time spent. There have been way too many instances where I would have been better served by doing something else. Since I do get a great amount of single bevel repair work in I decided instead of dropping it I would raise my prices. Not an easy thing for me to do but something that I feel is necessary.

You'll notice that we're now charging per inch vs per job type alone. This allows for a smaller knife to be charged less and a larger knife to be charged more - a directly proportional relationship.
In the past when I raised my sharpening prices I offered the forum members a chance to purchase sharpening coupons at the current pricing and I'm doing so again....
