A Long Line of Sharpening…

M & M Sharpening began as a project to obtain an Entrepreneurship merit badge for Patrick’s scout troop. We had talked about starting a sharpening business for years, and decided to make our dream become reality. We wrote a business plan, spent many hours perfecting our techniques, and bought the necessary tools. With an extensive background in professional tree cutting, Chainsaw chains are our specialty.
