Please see our Hours & Location page for the most up-to-date drop off schedule, turnaround times & procedures. 

Choosing the right edge geometry and finish are key in producing a sharp and durable edge for the desired use of the knife.

Bernal Cutlery specializes in wet grinding and Japanese whetstone sharpening using techniques that provide edges specifically suited for the knife or tool, factoring in its steel type. We can adjust edge geometry and blade thinness if necessary to provide improved geometry for increased performance.

Turn around time varies for our sharpening service depending on how much work we have in. We tend to stay very busy even with several full time sharpeners working, but we are happy to offer loaner knives when available.

We also offer an expedited rush turnaround for an extra 50% fee. The turnaround time for this service is at the discretion of the sharpeners and the queue for the day.

If you are a professional cook or culinary student we can schedule your knives for industry rush service at the regular rate. You must be on our Industry List to qualify.

You will be contacted via text when your order is complete and ready for pickup. We are not responsible for sharpening orders left over 90 days.
