Joe & Sandy Lentz, Joe's Sharpening Service

Joe’s sharpening experience began while working in an upholstery shop during high school, where he learned to sharpen upholstery shears.

Later, he spent many years drag racing, and worked in the natural gas industry. He assembled and calibrated precision instrumentation, which prepared him for the expertise needed to sharpen convex style shears.

After retiring in 2013, he and his wife started their own business, and moved from CA to IA.

Joe received training from Deb Finck, Dennis Brooks, and Bob Schiessel. He also certified with several shear manufacturers and the NBTSG in 2016 and 2017.

Joe’s goals are to provide excellent workmanship, integrity, and customer service. He has chosen to do the majority of his sharpening in salons so stylists can observe and ask questions.

Joe services all areas of Cedar Rapids, IA, as well as surrounding areas including Dubuque, Davenport, Iowa City, Marshalltown, Cedar Falls and Waterloo.
