Knife Sharpening in Portland, ME

Does anyone have a place they recommend for knife sharpening in or around Portland, Maine? I'm coming up with nothing in the yellow pages or online. Sorry if this isn't quite about food, but without good sharp knifes, the Home Cooking section is only dangerous to me!

  1. I'm sure someone does. I would contact Leroux Kitchen on Commercial Street. If they don't do it, I'm sure they know a place that does.

    1. I don't know of one in Portland itself, but the Freeport Knife Co. in Freeport is supposed to offer the best local sharpening services.

      1. Most Hannaford meat departments will sharpen knives for free if asked. They use an in-house grinder that gives a very sharp edge but does tend to take a fair amount of metal in the process.

        1. Shaw's doesn't do a bad job for free. They have asked me not to bring all my knives at once.

          1. I would ditto Freeport Knife Co.--they are the area experts.
