Knife Sharpening in Farmington Hills [Detroit Area]

I don't know if this the correct board for this subject. A hardware store on 12 mile Rd in Farmington Hills offers knife sharpening. I just had 4 knives sharpened and the bill was just $6.10. The hardware store is Jean's Hardware, a True Value store, across the street from Harrison High School near Middle Belt Rd.

    Always welcome news to know where to take our knifes. :)

    I have been getting mine done lately at the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market @ 2$ a knife. The same guy does knifes at the Okemos Farmers Market.

    I may end up trying your Farmington guy as I do not have to be there during such a narrow window.

      Jean's is a great hardware store. It's about the size of the paint dept. at a Home Depot, but they always seem to have what I need. I've seen the sign for knife sharpening, but haven't tried it. Did they do a good job - I assume so, or you wouldn't post!

        Archfan, they did a very good job. I brought the knives in on Monday AM and they called me on Tuesday PM to say they were ready.
        I also love that hardware shop. There is always someone there to answer my questions.

          Archfan, they did a very good job. I brought the knives in on Monday morning and they were ready for pick up on Tuesday afternoon.

          Thanks so much for the tip! I've been looking for a place to have my knives sharpened! Great price too!

            I was in McNichols Electric (13725 W. McNichols, Detroit) picking up my rice cooker when I saw the sign that they do knife sharpening as well. I talked to the owner and he uses a grinder (rather than a belt sander) and said he has good experience with the better French and German knives but little experience with the Japanese style (harder steel normally). I didn't use them for sharpening but it's another possibility.

              A couple of weeks ago there was a knife sharpening guy at the B'ham Farmer's Market. I don't know if he's there every week.
