ISO Reasonable Knife Sharpening

  • 7

I'm between Hancock Park and Koreatown.

I'm looking for a reasonably priced but good knife sharpening place.

  1. If you search the boards, you'll find lots of discussion. This is my go to place and, yes, his work is very good and reasonably priced:

    2. Second the recommendation to Ross. I had a dozen blades sharpened there and it ran me under $100 bucks. Plus, it's right next to the Bradbury building and across the street from El Mercado Centro, giving you a perfect reason to browse through both places . . . and DO browse.

          I've seen this guy at Int'l Silks and Woolens. It's very close to me and the prices are good.

          Have you used him?

            No but I intend to. Did you watch the video of his wife? LOL

        2. There's a guy who has a booth at the Studio City Farmers Market on Sunday mornings and he charges $5-6 per knife.

          Excellent results.
