Sharpening Services

Drop off sharpening anytime we are open. Appointments are not required.  Turnaround time is first come-first serve. Usually they are done within 1-2 days, sometimes they can be done as you wait!

If you would like to guarantee a quick turnaround, feel free to email us at info@uptowncutlery.com

 

Our Process

We use water cooled whetstone grinders to fix any damage on the edge and reset the bevels, followed up by hand with Japanese whetstones to bring the edge to the desired polish. We finish up on a strop to completely de-burr the polished edge. We are happy to work with folks to determine what’s best for them in terms of geometry and finish, as it can vary from job to job, tool to tool.

PLEASE CLEAN ALL KNIVES THOROUGHLY BEFORE DROPPING OFF!
