The Sharpening Guy LLC

Expert Knife Sharpening

Knife sharpening is my specialty. I custom sharpen and test each individual knife using state of the art equipment and techniques 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!
