I saw good reviews for Standard Cutlery & Supply Co, Ross Cutlery, and Gary's at the Culver City Farmer's Market. Has anyone actually used more than one of these places and can recommend one over another? Ross seems a bit pricey.
I'm trying to find someone who will make my kitchen knives *scary* sharp. I've had good results using a diamond stone myself on smaller knives, but I'd like to leave my expensive kitchen knives to a professional. If it matters, they're symmetrical European - not Asian - knives.
