Sharpening is local now!

Pioneer True Value Home Center


Mike Zanghi showing off some of the items they can sharpen.

We have a sharpener in town. Those who shop at Pioneer True Value Home Center know Mike Zanghi. He just completed training on the proper techniques to sharpen scissors, beautician and barber shears, and all kinds of knives from pocket knives to swords and quilters, he also sharpens fabric scissors! He also learned to sharpen axes, lawn mower blades, and other garden tools. He came home from his 30 hour class with the custom built machine specifically designed for sharpening scissors and the basics Mike learned from a master sharpener applies to all metal sharpening. Mike will continue to sharpen chain saw chains.

The whole idea is to get the best edge for each individual application without overheating or stressing the metal. Quality knives, scissors, and tools are an investment and must be treated properly to not lose that investment. Michael uses the freehand method to keep the edge at the proper angle for optimum performance and longevity. Michael and his machines have taken over the old key station and our key station is now at the front of the store.

We are always looking for ways to help out our customers and are expanding on the services we offer.

We offer rescreening and making new screens, glass and plexiglass cutting, rekeying locks (Schlage and Kwikset), custom color match paint, cutting and threading pipe, engraving tags, ripping and cutting lumber and plywood, and we sell one yard of pre-mixed concrete. We will be getting another key duplicating machine that can do the newer keys as well as a fob duplicating machine. And now we have professional sharpening at a reasonable price here at Pioneer True Value Home Center at 20901 South Street, Tehachapi, Calif.
