MSP Knife Sharpening

I hope this is within the acceptable topics for the board.

Are there any places around town that offer free or inexpensive knife sharpening - and do a decent job? My knives are woefully dull.

      I should clarify, Lunds and Byerlys does it for free. It is an overnight deal though.

        I second Kitchen Window. Took my Global chef's knife there once, thought it was a drop off and pick up in a couple days type of thing.....NOPE, the lady did it for me on the spot while I shopped around. It was done very well!

        look at SoupKitten's response of a knife sharpening business in NE mpls.

        1. We've been very satisfied with this place. And they have an awesome selection of sharp implements and related merchandise.

            that's who I used and I can vouch for their speed (I waited while they sharpened 3 knives) and cost ($3 each).
            Lovely people.

              I agree with the others, Eversharp did a great job on my knives. I blogged about my experience in a post a couple of months back.

              When I was there I found out they're one of the few authorized retailers to sell refurbished Wusthof knives that they get direct from the HQ in Germany. So you can get a deal if you need to add to your collection.

                Beware - they are putting a "utility" edge on your knife. Which is great if it's something you found at a garage sale but if it's an expensive knife you truly care about, learn to do it yourself with a stone. After 2 or 3 passes on the Eversharp grinder, there won't be much left.
