Knife Sharpening in Norfolk, VA?

Anyone know where I could go in Norfolk/Virginia Beach/surrounding areas to get my knives sharpened? Thanks in advance!

  1. I'm nowhere near Norfolk, but in Athens, GA, the local Kroger's will sharpen knives. The butcher department does it on the same machines they use for their knives. Free of charge. None of the other grocery stores in Athens do this and the specialty gourmet shops that will have a charge. I have no idea if this is a nationwide service or just something I'm lucky to have at my local. Couldn't hurt to call and ask.

    1. You may want to call and ask Williams Sonoma in Macarthur Center. I know some of them do, but maybe not every location.

        Thanks, I'm actually going to the mall today so I will ask when I'm over there!

      2. It's been a while since I lived there, but there used to be a place out toward Pungo that had a sign saying they sharpened knives. I'll try to remember the name of the road and post it.

        1. The butchers at Farm Fresh supermarket will sharpen your knives.

          1. Officially the grocery stores will do it...but they make you leave your knives and won't get it done til the next day typically. There is a place in Franklin, VA if you are driving through there for any reason. Did you have any luck with Williams Sonoma?
