we_can_sharpen_itIn 1978, an ambitious man started a small humble industrial knife sharpening shop in his basement, with one sharpener and one customer. From these meager beginnings, SGSI was born.

Twelve years later this man and his new business partner, thrust their foot into the printing industry by buying their first knife grinder. From this experience, SGSI diversified into specialty grinding jobs leading the company to become a full service, versatile sharpening shop intent on providing quality. In 2014, SGSI is still a family owned business. Their pursuit for perfection is displayed in each personally handled product. SGSI still holds to their humble beginnings, in not striving to be the largest but the best in the sharpening world. If it has an edge, SGSI can sharpen it.
