A great cook’s knife may be the single, most important tool in your kitchen
A sharp knife makes food prep easier, and safer. A sharp knife means more control and less slippage when you cut, leading to more consistent slices. Plus, cutting with a sharp knife is just more fun!
Our knife sharpening service is provided on-site twice a week. You will need to leave your knives with us. Please transport them safely (many wrap knives up into towel). We sharpen all brands, double and single bevel. We also provide repairs of tips, bolsters and edge damage for an extra charge. Sorry, no serrated knives.
Fee for Sharpening is based on length of blade:
$5.00/knife for blades less than 5 inches long
$8.00/knife for blades more than 5 inches long
