    Default Blade sharpening via the mail?

    Asked my trainer, she buys new blades, I got unlucky and got the brand new out of the box dull clipper blades so I have two sets blades need sharpened.

    I'd like to try sending them out if anyone can give suggestions for a reliable and timely sharpening service. TIA

    Depending on what brand they are, you can also get them sharpened by the manufacturer.

    I've gotten my Oster blades sharpened by Oster. They also refurbished the clippers, which including sharpening one blade in the cost. When I got them back they looked like brand new clippers.

    Red Horse Sharpening is a pretty reasonably priced mail in company. They also do drop offs at some horse show venues.

    Love these guys. I've used them for years and always recommend them when someone asks on here. $6 for small blades, $7 for large. They are timely, have very good customer service and always do a good job on the blades.
