Tool Sharpening in Japan DATE OF NEXT SHIPMENT TO JAPAN: Nov. 30, 2014
Any tool purchased from McClain's can be returned to the Japanese manufacturer for professional sharpening. Please do not send tools made by other manufacturers. Our manufacturer only sharpens the tools they make. If you send other manufacturer's tools, they will be returned to you unsharpened.
To hold down shipping and handling costs, the tools are returned at the same time that an order for more tool inventory is placed; then all of the tools, new and re-sharpened, are shipped back to the U.S. together. So allow at least six to eight weeks for the round trip. The price for sharpening is only $6.00 per tool.
In the package with the tools, please include a note telling us you want them to be sharpened. Do not include payment. We will send the tools to Japan and notify you of the total due, including return shipping, when the tools come back.
Please send the tools to McClain's, 15685 SW 116th Avenue PMB 202, King City, OR 97224-2695.
