We live in Chapel Hill and have had a heck of a time finding a good professional knife sharpener. I used to take my knives to the butcher in Eastgate who would then send them out. But they've long since closed and since then, all sorts of places keep referring us to Yarnell-Hoffer. I've taken my knives there twice, but my blades came back in pretty bad shape from the guy, whose hours were unpredictable and prices were high. I think he is more of a lawn tools blade sharpener. Any help would be appreciated.
