Knife sharpening

Salt Lake City, UT

Professional Knife Sharpening

We offer professional knife sharpening on-site. Schedule a date to drop off your knives and we will contact you to pick them up when they’re finished. Knives are usually sharpened by the next business day.

 *Please note: The cost for professionally sharpening knives is $3.25/inch. Not all knives can be sharpened.

Basic Knife Skills Class

Sharpen your knife skills too! If you haven’t taken a basic knife skills class, we highly recommend it!  You’ll learn how to care for knives, choose the proper knife for the job, keep your knives sharp, properly wash them, and more! Plus, you can bring one knife to class and we will sharpen it for you (for free!)
