Our Process

We use coarse whetstones to fix any damage on the edge then follow up with fine Japanese whetstones to bring the edge to the desired polish. 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!
