Expert Knife Sharpening
Knife sharpening is my specialty. I hand hone every non-serrated knife using Japanese waterstones to give your knife a sharp and triangular edge. I am one of the few sharpeners in America who has the knowledge, the equipment, and the ability to properly sharpen Japanese knives. In addition to Japanese knives, I also specialize in sharpening western style knives, serrated knives, and straight razors. Let me sharpen your knives and show you the true meaning of sharp!

This guy knows what he’s doing. My chef knives come back in excellent shape and I am yet again able to cut whatever, perfectly.

My knives arrived today- thank you for the great work and speedy turnaround! I will keep your info and be sure to pass it on to my friends.
Just wanted to thank you again for doing such a great job on my knives. I cooked a meal today for a cooking club I’m in and it was SO NICE that the knives actually cut through things easily, for a change!
I’ll certainly pass the word about your services to my friends. Thanks again!

I got my knives back Saturday. They are fantatsic. They have never been sharper. I love the sheath you made for the scalping knife.
If you do not mind, I’ll start spreading the word about you down here. I know of a few people who appreciate sharpe knives.
I am one happy customer,

I had a chance to use my knife last night and it was awesome. I didn’t even know a knife could cut that well, (and it’s not even a very nice knife). I’ll definitely be back in the future.

Hello, Matt. Thank you very much indeed for the beautiful sharpening job you’ve done on my tired old knives. The newly serrated ones are very useful. My favorites, the two nearly antique Sabatier knives, have been given new life!
Again, many thanks.

You did me well! Hatchet cuts and shaved like you’d said it would. Thanks again for showing me your set-up and for answering my questions.
10 out of 10:
The Sharpening Guy’s superb sharpening skills can only be rivaled by his customer service skills. The manufacturer sent me a bent knife; The Sharpening Guy made me aware of the anomaly and tried to correct it. The damage was to severe to fix, so needless to say, I sent the knife back and requested that my new one be sent to his shop. He alerted me of it’s arrival and sharpened it on the same night. Two days later my knife arrived like a custom made knife. I asked him to round the spine and bolster, which he willingly obliged too. The edge itself was extremely sharp and beautifully polished. I would recommend The Sharpening Guy to anyone who truly cares about their knives and wants them wickedly sharp. A truly great experience and one that will be repeated.

Holy cow! My knives are so sharp!!! I think they’re better than when they were new. I forgot how much easier it is to cook with sharp knives. Thank you very much!
