Knife Sharpeners


Family business

  • The “Mister Sharp” franchise was introduced to New Zealand in 1990.
  • Denis (the original Mister Sharp) Poppe is still operating “Mister Sharp” in Cambridge, Matamata and Morrinsville.
  • His son Lance (get the point) Poppe now operates throughout Auckland and the Waikato, from Hibiscus Coast down to Hamilton and all in between.
  • His niece Karen (Mrs Sharp) Gilbert now operates in Napier, Hastings and Central Hawkes Bay
  • His nephew Rusty (blunt as) Poppe now operates in Taupo, Rotorua & Tauranga, Bay of Plenty
  • The family business is growing with possibly another cousin jumping on board to operate in the Taranaki.
  • Over the years the systems, grinding machines and practices have been updated but the principle has remained the same – a mobile sharpening service that visits clients at a time and place that is convenient to them.
  • Whether it is commercial premises such as a restaurant or a private household – all jobs are important and part of the service.

What our clients think

Lance !!! What have you done.....The " axe " ( rather large chefs knife )
Hasn't been edging like this since the 80's
Youve brought new life to the kitchen drawer and a new zest and enthusiasm for cooking. Thanks for bringing back our knives.

Andrew Andersen

Fantastic service! Lance was nice and friendly, available within the week and worked quickly. I can't explain how good it is to be able to slice a tomato with ease! Knives were very cleanly sharpened and still holding their edge.

Rachel Simpson

Lance is a bloody nice guy and did a great job with my knives and axes. Also turned up bang on time. Will use again next season, highly recommended!

Reagan White

We put up with dull knives for way too long. Had I known sharp knives (and safer meal prep) was just a phone call away, I would have contacted Mister Sharp years ago. Lance appears very knowledgeable and will go out of his way to ensure his customers are satisfied.
