For a long time Shady Side Bonsai has offered sharpening and alignment services to our
local customers. We have decided to expand that service to all our customers near and far.
A sharp clean edge on a bonsai tool is essential for you to do the correct job. Not only
is it horticultural sound but it is a must for aesthetic reasons. A dull or misaligned tool can minimize all the hard work
you put into your tree. This valuable service will extend the life of your tool and protect your investment as well.
The service is a simple and basic one. Shady Side will sharpen, align, buff and polish any
bonsai related tool that you send us. Each tool is evaluated individually for what needs it may require. Such as filing, sharpening,
honing, and alignment of tools. After the cutting edges are serviced all tools are buffed with jewelers rouge to rid the tool
of rust and bring back its original luster. The final step is to oil each tool to protect it from the elements.
