Knife sharpening in Raleigh

I used to know many places to get my knives sharpened when I lived in Chapel Hill, but now that I've moved to Raleigh I haven't found anyplace. Suggestions? Inside the beltline preferred (I live in Boylan Heights). Thanks!

  1. Last year someone posted about a shop in Cary (IIRC) that sold good quality knives and also sharpened. When I later tried to look up the posting it had been deleted (some of the post delved into support of independent/local businesses). Hopefully they will repost, as it was the only referral I've seen for the area!

      Here is the old thread.

      Beck's Cutlery in McGregor Village seems to be the place you want but you're gonna have to get outside the beltline.

        That is the place! Thanks - I never could find the info from the post I remembered, but the details of this thread sound like the place.

    2. I took all my knives to Becks in Cary just last week. Prices seemed reasonable ( I think I paid $22 for 7 knives) and I am very happy with the results. When I called he told me if I brought the knives in on Saturday morning, he'd have them back to me the same day. That's why I brought all of them in and we killed time at the Farmer's Market and goofing around in Raleigh. All in all, a very good experience. Becks is on 64 in McGregor Village.

      1. Inside the beltline, I had my knives sharpened at Capital City Grocery one Saturday afternoon, by Terry Bozon. I have his flier here in front of me. His phone is 919-779-5129 and e-mail is He does clipper blades ($5-6), knives ($1.75-3.75) and scissors ($4-5).

        He was to be in Cap City Groc. one Saturday per month, but alas I forget which Saturday!

        Hope this helps. He did a good job and, as you can see, his prices are very reasonable.
