Where's the best place for knife sharpening?

Please smack me lightly if you think i should have posted to "General Topics"...I posted here because I need to know place in NYC.

I got my best knife sharpened by the woman who sits outside the kitchen supply place in the Chelsea Market (Samurai Knife Sharpening). I'm sorry to say, she didn't do a very good job. After sharpening I cut myself for the first time with this knife because the knife didn't cut into the thing I was cutting but slid off it into my finger and wasn't even sharp enough to cut me very much! Jeez!

A friend went with me and had about 7 different knives sharpened and was also disappointed with the quality of the work.

Anyone have suggestions for a favorite place that does a great job of sharpening for a reasonable price? I see the Broadway Panhandler does it. Any good? Any borough would be fine. Thanks!
