Knife Sharpening

If your knives aren't as sharp as they were when new, don’t worry - almost any good knife can be bought back to life with proper professional knife sharpening.

We’ve got plenty of options in store to do the job, from traditional steels and whetstones to simple-to-use pull though knife sharpeners. Click to see our range of knife sharpeners.

If you’re unsure how to use a knife sharpener, either bring your knife into any of our shops (we’d recommend you sandwich it between a folded piece of thick card, blade side down, and use parcel tape at the top to form a sheath when you’re carrying the knife) - and we’ll show you how to sharpen it, or see our knife sharpening guide online and knife sharpening videos here for a whetstone, here for a steel and here for a pull through or electric knife sharpener. 

There will be times, though, that home knife sharpening just won’t do the trick. If the blade hasn’t seen a knife sharpener for years, or has had a mishap and suffered a chip, you’ll need to get it to an expert such as ourselves!

What can we sharpen?

  • Any good quality, taper ground knife
  • Japanese or European blades
  • Even the most blunted knife can be restored to a good cutting edge

What can’t be sharpened?

  • A lot of inexpensive knives have a ‘hollow ground’ edge – these can’t be resharpened without putting a whole new edge on the blade
  • Serrated knives can be very difficult to resharpen
  • Significant chips in the knife or bends in the tip

Top knife care tips:

  • Regular knife sharpening and honing to maintain the edge on your knife
  • Always wash by hand as soon as possible after use & dry thoroughly
  • Store in a knife block/rack this will help the knife stay sharper for longer and is a safer way to store out of reach of children too
