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 great niece Ella (Mrs Sharp) Stodart 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

Excellent service and soooo good to finally have sharp knives 🔪

Amy Burton

Lance was really responsive with my enquiry and came out to our work and sharpened a number of our items. My expensive chef knives have the most beautiful keen edge on them, we are stoked. Fantastic work and Lance really takes great care.

Danielle Hancock

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.

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.
