Knife Sharpening Orlando

carrollwoodz Aug 23, 2011 09:48 PM

I have taken my husbands hunting knives to Bass Pro to have sharpened and he always seems happy with them. I would like to get his kitchen knives sharpened but I hesitate to take them to the outdoor store.

1. Is it ok to have them sharpened there?
2. If not does anyone have a recommendation for a local sharpener?

Thank You

    I recently used Tim at Top Chef Tools. He has a mobile unit and primarily works with restaurants. I met in the Tampa bay area, but he is in Orlando more frequently.

    I was very happy with the job he did. I met him on his route, he sharpened while I waited and the price was very reasonable. He knows knives! Also has some great kitchen tools available too.

      I have used Buddy Blades several times with nice results, they will come and pick them up and deliver them back when done. Just google their name.

      Good Luck

        Barbjorg & Meatn3,

        Thank you for your replies. I did call Buddy Blades and they were fantastic. They sharpened the knives and the price I thought to be extremely reasonable.

          Truffles and Trifles in College Park also has a knife sharpener stop by some Saturdays. She ususally posts the times on her website: trufflesandtrifles.com.

            Tried to call Buudy Blades their phone was out of service. Anyone know any other service that will pick up in Orlando (by Seaworld) and maybe provide loaner knives?

              Top Chef Tools sharpens while you wait. Tim is very responsive to emails and lets you know where he will be at what time.

          A friend told me that there is a knife sharpener who sets up at the Audobon Park Farmers' Market on Monday evenings, over by Stardust on Corrine Drive.

            It might be the same guy who is at the Lake Eola Farmers Market on Sundays.

            I can't remember his name off the bat but his company is Steel and Stones LLC.
