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

What an amazing service. I was ready to ditch my lovely high quality Japanese knives because they could no longer cut anything, the edges had literally worn away after years of use & infrequent sharpening at home. Lance came to my house …

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.

We had our knives sharpened before the lock down and what a life changer! With all the home cooking imagine the frustration if we didnt have a full set of razor sharp knives.
Also had a great knife missing the top end which has been reshaped like new! Great result! AAA+++


Excellent service and soooo good to finally have sharp knives 🔪
