Knife sharpening in Cleveland, OH?


Does anyone know of a place to take your kitchen knifes to have the edges redone and sharpened and the rates?

  1. I sent a message to a knife sharpener I know in Cleveland Heights....I do not think she is a user yet....but I forwarded her this thread. I am sure she will be with you soon.

    I am in Detroit so I am not sure of the name of her business off the top of my head.

      She said she is having issues logging onto Chow but would like me to pass on her Email.

    2. There's a vendor that comes to the Westlake Farmer's Market (not of much help to you in December, I know). Email the farmers market peeps, they probably know his name:

        I assume he's the same guy that occasionally shows up at Shaker Square:
        Steve Bottorff

        I've never used his services, but he's a knife sharpening rock star. By which I mean that he gives classes, sells books and is the most well know knife sharpener in the area.

          There are 4 of us independent sharpeners here in the Cleveland-Akron area.
          Steve Bottorff, south Euclid
          Garth Proctor - Euclid
          Pat Hartmann - S Euclid
          Kevin Noon - Kent

          Unlike a real rock star, you would not want to sleep with my groupies.
