getting knives sharpened in LA or SFV?

I know some of the Sur La Table culinary stores have people who come in to do professional knife sharpening..
I've used the one in Newport, but don't know if the other stores have the same people.
It was a while ago, so you might want to see if they still do it.
Question: I have a set of Shun knives I need sharpened. The knife guy at the Cutlery in Manhattan Beach mall stated that since the steel is a bit harder, they have to use a different machine or something along those lines??? It was a little more expensive but he seemed to know what he was talking about.
And to keep it LA-centric, anyone get their knives sharpened here? Do they do a good job?
see, on their website it states that Shuns are $2.00 per inch...specifically mentioning shuns is kind of odd??? this is versus the $.75 per inch for other knives.
I've heard sometimes the people at Sur La Table don't know what they're doing....dunno if that's accurate or not.
