At Nella we have 109 years of knife sharpening experience – over that period of time we have helped many businesses become more productive, cost conscious and also safer.

Why you need to keep your knives sharp.
Health & Safety in the work place
Knives which are continually used on commercial premises must always be kept sharp - a blunt or dull knife is dangerous because it requires more pressure and is more likely to slip and cause an injury. This is the single most important reason to keep all knives sharp.
A knife, which is sharpened on a regular basis, also means that the person using it will be able to do a better, faster and easier job: in summary their productivity will increase. It will also enable that person to work neatly and more accurately, which will mean less wastage.
Never use a damaged or chipped knife - it's both dangerous and could be a potential refuge for bacteria & germs of all types.
The Nella knife sharpening service will ensure that wherever you are in the UK, whatever the type or size of business we have a solution which will ensure you always have sharp, clean, quality knives.
