Knife Sharpening Services

We provide premium whetstone sharpening for your kitchen or hunting knives, woodworking tools, or any edge requiring a high degree of polish. We can sharpen high end steels with high Rockwell hardness ratings and specialize in honing the perfect, razor sharp edge on your cutting tools. Regular sharpening is an important part of edge maintenance. Whetstone sharpening keeps your knife edge cool with water so there is no chance of ruining your knife's temper. Give us a call today to have us professionally sharpen your favorite cutlery or tool.

For knives requiring a less polished edge we offer "Quick-Sharpening." This is a great option for softer steels or less expensive knives and leaves a courser, toothy edge suitable for the home chef.
