Kevin Noon has been sharpening most of his life. Taught as a young child by his father, he has continued to hone his skills over the years.
When he was laid off from his career in 2009. he decided to sharpen for the general public and pursued venues such as Farmers' Markets, groups and store fronts. From those simple beginnings, Noon Sharpening, Inc. has grown to a very fulfilling career. Kevin is one of the only full time sharpeners.

He also sharpens for schools, groups, businesses and individuals.
