HOLY you are good. I need to stand on the roof and sing your praises. You have a level customer service you just don’t find any more. Dude I am impressed. Thank you, Josanna D.

Phil, You resurrected my knives from the dead! Thank you!! I bought my Henkel chef knife 20 years ago when I was stationed in Germany. Aside from honing the edge once in a while, it’s never been sharpened. I think it’s even sharper than when I bought it! The santoku knife is also back to life and better than new! I will definitely recommend you to anyone and send my knives to you again … if they ever need sharpening again (which I doubt because you did an outstanding job). I have a carving knife and a couple steak knives that’ll need some attention soon. I know where I’ll go for that. Thanks again! Kevin W.

I received a set of Henckel knives as a wedding gift from my best man. For nearly twenty years I used them almost daily, to the point where I couldn't even cut bread. I therefore delved into the great Internet expanse and found The service appeared in writing very professional, the cost reasonable and the promised turn around superb - so I took the plunge and I'm glad I did. I mailed my knives off on a Wednesday, and they were received on a Friday. I immediately received an email confirming receipt of my knives and offering me the option to pay via credit card. The very next day (a Saturday mind you!) I received an email that not only were my knives complete, but that the job cost less than had been approximated; and furthermore, that they had already been shipped back to me! Two days later I was back to use my wonderfully sharp knives on Monday evening's family dinner. Thanks Thumbs way up. Martin Q.

Hi Philip: The knives arrived today. My wife couldn't be happier. She's in the kitchen now, cutting anything she can find just because the knives are so easy to use. Thanks for doing such a great job! Mike A.

Hi Philip, I received the knives in the mail today, thank you for the quick turnaround time. You did a wonderful job putting the edge back on and they’re a pleasure to use now that I have sharp knives again; much appreciated. Tony D.

Awesome! Thanks for the quick turnaround! I am very pleased with the results! Joe H

Hey Philip, The chipped Henckels Santoku I sent you the other week is better than when it was new. We thought it was ready for the trash; our Wusthof sharpener did nothing to help it. After seeing the work you did, I am reluctant to use that hand held sharpener again. Thanks for your expert work. We will continue to send our knives to you. So pleased! Tom D.

Dear Philip, Thank you for the quick service over the holidays. Shirley H.

You guys do a great job. More headed your way. Keith H.

Hi Philip The knives came today. Thanks very much for the great job and quick turnaround. Some time ago I purchased a Chefs Choice 315S electric sharpener for asian knives, but have not used it. I think I'm afraid to take a chance and ruin my knives. Might get the courage to try. Thanks for the advice on how to care for my knives. Will certainly keep you at the top of the list for future needs. steve b.

The knife arrived & is great - thanks for your excellent work! Sally A.

Wow! Thanks for making that Global knife even better than when I bought it. Jerry

Hi Philip, I've been away from home since you sent my knives back. Just wanted to thank you for the great job. It's like having a new set of knives. Thanks so much, Bill C.

Hi Philip, I received my knife yesterday - that's a great job you did. I'm glad I did not try it myself even though I like to sharpen my own knives free hand with water stones. First, I do OK, but I'm not that good; and second, there was just too much material to remove on that old butcher's knife. I really like the polished appearance of the edge. Regards, --Jim

Hello Philip, I just returned home after vacation and found my knives. Thanks for a great job, they are perfect. I learned a lesson! Have a great new year, Olivier P.

Philip...I am so glad people like you are around...Thanks for the hard work, can't wait to use them. I will get the ceramic hone, been using a steel for 35 that 35 years I met only one chef that knew how to sharpen knives .... he moved away. Thanks again..... Jerry W.

Dear Phillip, Just wanted to drop you line to tell you that your blade renewal on my wusthoff and heinkel knives is really great. Thanks for the expert job !!! William B.

Hello Philip, Just wanted to say the knives arrived home safely. And Oh Luxury!!!!!!! What a pleasure to use. Thank you, thank you! Joanne S.

Hi Philip, Thank you so much, we truly appreciate your quick response! Have a happy Thanksgiving, Mark & Lisa G.

Thanks Philip. I really appreciate the quick turnaround, especially with Thanksgiving coming up. Shirley

Thank you! I have received them...and they look great! Thank you for the quick turn around and for nice sharp knives again! Trudy O.

Hi Phillip: Our home computer has been in for service, so I wanted to respond to your email for Susan. We received the knives and they are like new, maybe better! Thank you very much for the new blades. We will pass on the word of your service. It was great, especially all of the communication. Regards, Andrew G.

Philip, Thank you for the super fast response. It is nice to know that there is someone that still knows how to sharpen knifes as it seems to be a lost trade. Thanks again, Dwight R.

Philip, Thanks again for the prompt turnaround. I am a bit of a fanatic when it comes to sharp knives and I know I drive my family crazy insisting that every knife be as sharp as possible at all times. while knife sharpening is certainly not my hobby, it could be characterized as an obsession of mine. The serrated bread knife came back today, and I must say I was impressed. it was put to use at dinner tonight and I must say, it has never cut a slice of bread as well or easily short of the day I bought it. Serrated knives are a bit more challenging to keep sharp, hence my search for your service. Thank you again for the great work, I appreciate your passion for all things sharp...Best Regards, Tom G.

Hi Philip, Thanks so much for the super fast turn-around with my knives. So that's what a professionally sharpened knife is like. WOW. Will definitely be a repeat customer. Thanks again, Kirk

I received my newly sharpened knives today. Wow! They are like new again. The high carbon stainless blades are great again, but the Sabatier carbon steel blades are like razors! I will keep up with edges with my honing stone and will definitely be sending back wo you when they need sharpening again. Thanks again do much! Andrew K.

Philip - Received my knives back today and as advertised, they are dangerously sharp! Thank you so much, your service was extremely fast, communication was excellent and the service was simply exemplary. Thank you from an extremely satisfied customer who is already spreading the word about you to all my friends and colleagues. DC Burch

Thanks, Philip! The knives arrived Friday and they are fantastic! We'll be telling everybody about you. Paul is REALLY picky about his knives, and you surprised him. Expect return business and referrals! Becky J.

Thanks for the quick turnaround !!! Wendy M.

Hello Thank you for the quick work! Liam D.

Hi Philip, I wanted you to know that I used my knives for the first time since you sharpened them and... WOW! My Henckels haven't cut like this in years. What a huge difference. I'm going to post about it on my Facebook tonight so my friends will know where to get their knives sharpened. Thanks so much! Have a great night, Jasmine C.
