Knife sharpening in Seattle?
Not sure if this is the correct forum to post this?.....but am wondering
if anyone knows of a place that does professional knife sharpening
in the Seattle area?
I have a set of 4 Global knives that are in dire need of a new,sharp edge.
You may want to learn to use a whetstone. I've had the same set of knives for about 45 years and I successfully keep them sharp with a whetstone has a fine and a coarse side. Here's a good website on how to do your own sharpening with various implements, including a stone. http://www.dmtsharp.com/general/basic...

Just to add to the options, the Edge Pro kits, while a significant initial investment (about $200 for the apex 3) are very easy to use because they control the angle of sharpening. There are videos on youtube. I can sharpen all my knives in about 20 minutes.
I have taken my knives to Seattle Cutlery in Pike Place Market (near Starbucks). They always seem to do a good job for a fair price.
I have also heard rumor that you can take knives to the meat department at QFC (and maybe other stores) for sharpening. I might try it with a less-favorite knife before leaving my Globals with them!
Thanks for Pike Place info-will look into it.
I did take a cheap Henkles chef knife to QFC years ago and they made it worse!
They use electric grinders and will sharpen up to 3 knives for free,for their customers.
I'll def. try a professional sharpener this time,not a butcher or fishmonger again!
Bob Kramer, a certified "Bladesmith," used to be the go-to guy. Now he just makes custom knives costing in the thousands. All his past customers got a recommendation from him for a well-trained alternative. Unfortunately, I lost that old email.
Maybe some other Kramer fan has it and could post it here.
Had my knives done at Seattle Cutlery-Pike Place Mkt.
Done in one day--very sharp--$1.50 per inch--not bad...
