Knife Sharpening Services in Northern Burbs??
This has probably been covered before, but I'm new to the CHOW and didn't see anything recent on the boards. Anyhow, I know everyone raves about Northwestern Cutlery on Lake Street in the city, but what if you're stuck up north in the suburbs? Anyone have any recommendations/good experiences up north?
This is who a friend uses - he has a restaurant - and they come to his door.

There used to be a guy who set up in a park across street from my house in Evanston. Unfortunately, I never knew when he was coming and have no idea how to reach him and it only worked for me if I noticed him there and wasn't at work that day.
Maybe someone else knows. He probably sets up all over the North Shore.
Tony lives in Oak Park, but travels all throughout the Chicago land area. He has a van and loads his cart into it, drives to different neighborhoods and pedals around sharpening knives, scissors, garden tools-even my lawn mower blades! Only problem is, you never know when he's coming. He comes to my Evanston block every summer. I just hear his bell and start gathering blades!
Wow, old topic!
Last year, Corrado Cutlery opened on Main Street in Evanston after many decades in the Loop. We recently had them sharpen a kitchen knife. They redo the entire edge, and it came out great, the way a knife should be. We were so pleased with the results that we brought in several more, and those came out great as well. We're much happier with the results than with the sharpening by To The Point, the folks with the booth at the Evanston Farmers Market. Corrado Cutlery all the way!
