Knives in the Triangle

I'm looking to buy myself some new knives. Where in the Triangle can I go to check some out? I'm planning on trying them out in a store, then buying online, as they appear to be cheaper online.

I'm especially interested in checking out Shun knives, but it would be nice to have a selection to choose from.

Any advice is appreciated.

  1. There is a great knife shop in McGregor Village, Cary, called....I think....Beck's Cutlery. They seem to have just about everything.

    1. I second that Beck's has a great selection and great personable service. Also if you are into collecting dolls they have that too. I wouldnt go anywhere else for either.

        1. Williams-Sonoma at Southpoint carries Shun knives.

          A related question: How about knife sharpening? Who do you trust with your knives? I'm on the Chapel Hill/ Durham side, so prefer not to drive to Raleigh or Cary if possible. But I tried one place, I won't mention names, with one of my cheaper knives and was not happy.

            I get mine sharpened at Kitchenworks at the University mall in Chapel Hill. They are reasonable, too, at 50 cents per inch.
