Best knife shop in Rhode Island or nearby?

Dear NE Chowhounds,

I'm looking to give my Dad a gift card to an excellent knife shop for his birthday. I would rather not go with a big chain as I want him to have the opportunity to hold the knives, get advice from knowledgeable store staff and be able to return for sharpening, etc.

Does anyone know of a good shop like that? My Dad lives in Providence but anywhere within reasonable driving distance will do.

I'm not from the area so any advice is greatly appreciated!

      Do a search. There is a good one at Providence Place Mall. I can't recall the name.

        Thanks, all! This is exactly the kind of advice I was looking for! I'm glad it's in Providence Place Mall because he can easily get there.
