Rates & Services

We specialize 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 will adjust edge geometry and blade thinness if necessary to provide improved geometry for increased performance.

We offer walk-in service for the general public and appointments for industry professionals.

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

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.

Our current turnaround time is approximately 2 weeks for standard service. Rush service is typically 48-72 hours depending on volume of work. Thinning work is ineligible for Rush Service.

Please clean your knives prior to drop off. Dirty knives will be assessed a $5 per knife cleaning fee.
