Orange county mobile Japanese knife sharpening?

A while back, someone mentioned a mobile OC guy that uses whetstones to sharpen. Does anyone know of a place that does whetstone sharpening in the OC?

I last had some knives sharpened at Anzen in Japantown, but I am not impressed at all by his work...My MAC & Global knives came out marginally sharper; it is a good thing I did not drop off the Konosuke.

      It was not, and from my memory, his website was sort of Wordpressy. His website did explain that he used whetstones exclusively and can do certain grids upon request...

      I have mine done at Chef's Toys. They claim they only do it with a whetstone. I have been mostly happy with it.
