If you prefer us to sharpen your blade, or if you may have neglected to maintain your edge for a while, simply ship your knife to us. We’ll not only sharpen it, but we will also inspect the knife for any warranted repairs and “tune” the knife for optimum performance.

Please enclose your return shipping address with $5.00 for first knife and $2.50 for each additional knife, to cover handling and return shipping charges.
