Knife Sharpening in Somerville?

Now that Siraco's has closed, I'm looking for a new knife sharpener. Any recommendations, besides my local butcher?

  1. They have several drop off points including ones in Cambridge (Leavitt and Pierce), Arlington (the Fabric Corner), and Everett. They also have a van outfitted for sharpening and someone mentioned they would be going to the Union Sq Farmer's Market. They gave me their card and said the number would not be changing -- 617-628-6071.

      I saw the sharpening van in a Cambridge parking lot (behind Shalimar in Central Square) the other day and there were a few people lined up to get mobile knife sharpening. I agree -- call them and continue to give them business. I would think not having the overhead of the storefront might make good financial sense for them, even though I'm sad every time I drive by the old shop.

        the siraco's sharpening van was at the union sq. farmer's market two weeks ago and if i remember correctly they should be there the day after tomorrow as welll, though it's probably worth a call to confirm that.

      2. Awesome. Thanks y'all!
