Knife sharpening - downtown

I acknowledge that I am not a *real* foodie until I can do this myself, but, I give up. I just have no innate feel for the tempering of metal. Didn't have it in Grade 9 metal shop class, don't have it now with a whetstone. It is what it is...
That said, any good recco's for where to bring my knives...?
I finally went and bought a Waring Pro brand electric knife sharpener. Paid around $100. I am a bit of a knife snob and got fed up with trying to sharpen myself.
Best thing I ever did. I get great edges on all my knives. It does leave some small scuffing on the blade but that doesn't bother me.
Really happy with it. I'm now also responsible for keeping my friends and family in sharp knives...
