Do they do a good job of sharpening knives, I have not used them in over 20 years. (Moved out of state) Going to be in the SF/Berkeley area for a week and I thought I might drop some knives off for sharpening.

Thanks

    Last time I brought my knives, which was 2-3 years ago, they did a fine job.

      I use them for my knives and they do a great job for a good price. The last knives I had sharpened were about 6 months ago; it's about time again.

            They were mentioned favorably in a New Yorker article recently on "edge geometry." I wish I lived nearby.

              We have just rotated all our knives through them. They did a fine job.

                They do a great job, and for a very reasonable price!

                    I think they're more expensive than Columbus.

                    I think the last time I brought a 9" chefs knife, a paring knife and a petty knife and it was $18 for same day turnaround.

                      That's the only place I will take a knife. I was reluctant to trust any knife sharpener for years after getting a botch job from one. Then I finally ttried CC, taking in an old knife which needed significant work to remove a nick. I was completely satisfied and now have used them a few times and also bought some new knives and such. The owners are nice folks.
