Japanese knife sharpening

Nyleve | Feb 28, 2009 08:31 AM

I know, I know - I've searched through all the posts on this subject. I know I should learn to sharpen my own knives properly but I can tell you right now it's just not going to happen. We have to pick our battles and this one isn't going to make my list.

So, given that, where can I take my knives? I have two Japanese style knives - one is a slicer with those dimples along the side and the other is a small but very handy damascus steel utility knife. They both need sharpening. Any suggestions at all? I have gathered that Nella isn't recommended for this. What about someplace up near J-Town? I don't want to ruin the knives but, at the same time, I'm not obsessive either. Just has to be a decent job - not Nobel Prize-winning.
