    Got mine done at the knife shop in the providence place mall, they did a great job. In a stunning display of cleverness, I think it's called cutting edge?

      Thanks for the reply. What was the turn around time on the sharpening?

        I'm not sure. A couple of days.

          I think they also have a place in the emerald sq mall; admittedly Mass not RI, but depending on where you are it might be closer.

        Do you remember what the cost was at the cutting edge?

        If you do a search for knife sharpening on the boards, someone mentioned that they can get their knives sharpened for free at (at least their) Shaw's Supermarket... That might be worth a try.

        I don't know if they'd take off too much of the blade or not, but if you don't have superb knives to start with, I wouldn't worry much. The cost of paying someone to do sharpening probably wouldn't be worth it.

        Best, of course, would be to learn how to sharpen your own knives with a sharpening stone -- it isn't too hard.

          There is a place in Newport called Colonial Fix It Shop - on Washington Square, next to the Jane Pickens theatre.. he did a great job on my knive, even flattened out the bent tip (a fall onto a tile floor). Don't remember the cost or the turn around time though.

            Has anyone tried Cove Cutlery in Charlestown? Do they sharpen knives?

                  I found a man in the East Side Monthly who comes and will pick up and deliver knifes with a turn around time of 24 hours. It was Charles Cutlery Service. 831-6187 Don't know if he works outside Providence Area

                    I bring mine to City Saw in Providence, on Cranston Street, near the Cranston border. Last time it was $2.50 each and they had it done in a few hours.
