About

Welcome to Vivront
We love home cooking. It's better with sharp knives.

You’ve found a kitchen place ready to sharpen your knives by mail.

At Vivront we love to bring vibrancy to kitchens, meals with family and friends, gadgets, goodies and primarily sharp knives via our mail-in sharpening service. After all. The sharpener, "near by," is actually in your mailbox and your USPS truck with Vivront.com. 

We started Vivront (a future tense for “they live" in French) with the observation that dull knives are in nearly every kitchen passively working against home cooks and cooking successes.

No one buys dull knives but nearly everyone puts up with them. Let's change that. The current sharpening models are broken for ~95% of our households that have dull knives. With regularly serviced knives, meals at home are easier, more joyful and take less time. We make servicing knives really easy. 

Further, when you use Vivront you also support paying off individual nutrition account balances in our schools. Some 75% of schools report debt on their student accounts. The average debt is $170 and it follows students from year to year to graduation in many districts. Together we can make meaningful impact on that debt. More details on school nutrition debt challenges can be found here

 

 

The Give Back Program
It could have been "Free" Lunch. 

Our founder, Joseph, very gratefully grew up with "reduced" lunch. Things were tight. He resolved to one day build a company that would work in support of school lunch efforts for awareness and in paying off school lunch debt. With Vivront, that day is today.

Generating Funds

For every kitchen knife set we sharpen we also donate to pay down debt. When schools run fundraisers the amount can be even more. We're glad to be able to help out. Join us by running a fundraiser or simply by sharpening your knives with Vivront

 

So, how do we go about it?

We’re a bit like a poodle in that we’re pretty smart but also really eager to be with and help people.

If we had a famous spokesperson, it might be someone like Mrs. Paltrow, because she engages the world aspirationally, with authenticity and intentionality.

If we picked out the perfect outfit to represent us, we would be wearing a hip-ish apron (you know the one), over a white shirt or dress and a pair of simple kicks, in the kitchen with confidence.
