Free Tool Sharpening Event @ Asheville Tool Library
Jun 1 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

Free Tool Sharpening Event! There will be library volunteers on site waiting to sharpen your dull tools.

You can bring your pocket knives, kitchen knives, axes, pruning shears, lawnmower blades or any other dull tools with a straight edge and they’ll be ready to send you home with sharp, and therefore safer, tools.

While we’re confident we’ll be able to sharpen most tools that people bring in, we do reserve to right to turn away any tools they feel cannot be safely or properly sharpened. For example, serrated blades are difficult to sharpen. Also, if the waiting lines are long, we may not be able to sharpen time-consuming items like chainsaw chains or carbide circular saw blades.

We can’t wait to see you and we will update presenters, vendors, and schedules as we go along.
