Knife sharpener at Berkeley Farmers' Mkt.

Has anyone brought their knives to this guy? I have a tryout this Monday and need my knives sharpened asap. I tried to bring them to HIDA on San Pablo, but they can't be done until the 30th.
I wish I had one of those 3 sided sharpening stones! I am very wary about taking my knives to people who take too much metal off the edge.
Thanks!

  1. He's amazing. He'll take good care of your blades. A real pro.

    1. I've taken my knives to this guy also. He's very good and the prices are very reasonable as well.

      1. I had good luck with the guy for a while but one time a knife came back concave and I had to take it to Columbus Cutlery to be repaired. To be fair, I had a problem at CC once, too, but they fired the new guy who was responsible.

          1. re: achefsbest

            A few weeks ago I asked him if he could sharpen my bread knife. He said he could and did a great job. I think his name is Eric Weiss, and he's also a calligrapher. Interesting guy.
