Town Cutler sharpens each knife using multiple steps on Japanese Whetstones – typically starting off at 1,000 grit and finishing between 6,000 grit and 16,000 grit. After polishing on stones, the knife is brought to a razor finish on a leather strop, similar to what you might see in a high-end barbershop.  With precision whetstone sharpening each knife is sharpened differently depending on the type of steel and its use.  Sharpening never takes longer than 24 hours.  Same-day sharpening depends on the amount business we have for the day.  If you need a rush job please call first. 

We also offer sharpening for most wood working tools.

Return on sharpening is never more than a 24-hour turnaround. On Saturdays we offer a limited amount of same day knife sharpening at no extra charge. Knives must be dropped off by 3pm for same day service. Offered on a first come, first served basis.
