Knife sharpening for Japanese knives

tazia | Feb 20, 2012 07:42 AM

I have a number of Shun knives that are woefully dull. I've been putting off getting them sharpened by sending them in the mail because of things like packaging and going to the post office, so I'm hoping there might be somewhere local that would make the whole process less of a pain.

I read some reviews of local knife sharpeners, but I noticed some people complaining that the Japanese knives were not being sharpened properly. Are there any local sharpeners who are good at handling the harder steel of the Japanese knives? (preferably T-accessible)

I will probably learn to sharpen myself eventually, but for now, I need my knives back to working well.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
