About Smiths

Smith's, the Edge Experts since 1886

From our humble beginnings as a small Arkansas stone company to our current position as the market leader in the knife and scissor sharpening category, Smith's has become the fastest growing, full line supplier of great sharpening products.  Our simple goal is to provide consumers with the best edge for whatever task they are performing, while also providing outrageously good customer service.

We have the broadest line of knife and scissors sharpeners available, ranging from simple,fixed angle pull through sharpeners for consumers that want quick and easy sharpening, to sophisticated Precision Kits designed for the knife sharpening enthusiast.  Our offering includes both manual and electrical sharpeners that incorporate many different abrasive materials including diamond, carbide, ceramic, bonded synthetic abrasives and, of course, natural Arkansas stones.  We are constantly striving to identify improved methods for providing consumers with the best edge as shown by our recent launch of an electric sharpener incorporating interlocking diamond coated wheels that insures a factory-sharp edge to your knife with only a few quick passes of the knife.  We also offer designs that are appropriate for the field or for your gourmet kitchen.

Smith's sharpeners can be found at most major mass, sporting goods and hardware retailers, as well as many independent sporting goods and housewares dealers, or you can also purchase our sharpeners online from this and other websites. 

We are confident that we have a sharpener that will meet your needs.  We also provide a wealth of educational material to help you understand how to select the right sharpener and how to use it correctly.

Everyone at Smith's is dedicated to insuring you have the best edge for your task.  Come back to this site often to see what's new from Smith's.  If you have a question that is not answered by this website, please feel free to contact us directly.  We would love to help in any way we can.
