QUESTIONS WE GET FREQUENTLY ASKED

Where are you located?

Our shop is based in Gatineau, just 10 minutes away from downtown Ottawa. We understand that finding a reliable source to sharpen your knives can be difficult, which is why we also offer mail-in sharpening services.

How much does it cost to sharpen my knives?

Our wet-machine sharpening starts at 10$ per knife and our traditional Japanese Whetstone sharpening which includes polishing and stropping starts at 20$ per knife.

Can I wait for my knives during the sharpening?

Typically we prefer that your knives are left with us for a few hours to ensure they are done properly. Since we are a storefront, we have walk-in clients which could delay the sharpening if you are waiting.

What is the difference between machine and hand sharpening?

Machine sharpening typically takes less than 10 minutes per knife and removes more metal from the edge than the traditional hand-sharpening. Our hand-sharpening also includes additional blade polishing whichi is highly recommended for knives made from hard steel such as Japanese knives.

How should I bring my knives to you?

While bringing them here dull is usually the easiest part, bringing them crisp sharp back home can pose risks. We recommend that you wrap the blades in a towel and put them in a box. If needed, we also sell some blade guards and cases in store.

Is it hard to sharpen my knives myself?

Sharpening isn't hard per say, but it requires a lot of patience and practice in order to be mastered. We typically see that a proper hand-sharpening session takes between 30 and 90 minutes all depending on the condition of the blade and experience.

Do you sharpen more than just knives?

We truly specialize in knives and offer limited sharpening service on a few other products. We do not currently sharpen; industrial tools, saws, drills, scissors. If you have something outside of this list, give us a call to see if we can sharpen it: 819-317-1000.
