I had a lot of expensive knives that needed sharpening so I paid Rod a visit and he sharpened my knifes to the point that they are shaper than when they were new. This guy did a great job. If you have knives please have them sharpened by Rod, you will be amazed how sharp he will make them.
Had a set of vintage Wusthoff chef’s knives sharpened about a year ago, and I am amazed that they are still holding their edge with regular use. Just went back to have an extra long pair of scissors sharpened that I happen to use daily for work. They cut smooth as butter now. Excellent while-you-wait service at a more than affordable rate. Definitely will recommend to friends.
We found Rod’s Sharpening Service at the Olney Farmers Market 3 weeks ago. The following week we brought them 3 pocket knives, a pair of pruners and an old chef’s knife. (Pocket knives are Benchmark ATS-34, Cold Steel Recon1 w/ serrated blade, and an H&K mini w/ serrated blade. Pruner is a Felco 912.) The pocket knives were sharpened better than new – especially the serrateds. The Felco cut through our rose stems without any shredding!!! As for the chef’s knife (10″ Oxford Hall Cutlery – Japan) I cannot be MORE THRILLED with the end result. I had purchased this nicely balanced knife 25+ years ago. As well balanced as it is, it has NEVER been able to get an edge, much less maintain one. From sharpening steels to oil stones it was only so-so. Rod’s craftsmanship changed all that! The edge is now like a single-edge razor thinly slicing garlic! (Yeah, “Goodfellas” reference.) And slicing tomatoes…perfection! I cannot forget Liz at the front of the tent! She not only takes your order and requirements, but reminds you – especially if you are a first-time client – that the new edge(s) are going to be more sharp than you are accustomed to. HOW TRUE! And the bonus is you can drop off your blades, enjoy the market and vendors then come back to pick them up.
I couldn’t be happier with my knives! This was the only place a could find that was able to do serrated knives. My cheap knife set now cuts like an expensive one. Just call beforehand because the location listed is actually a coffee shop they use as a drop off. I called and they met me right away. Fantastic experience! I highly recommend! Also, they said that they are vendors at the Olney Farmers Market. Hope that helps!
Rod keeps my Messermeisters in great shape. He always sharpens until the knife can cut paper. No joke- I can shave with the finished product.
Thanks for an excellent sharpening experience. You did a great job on my 10 best knives. (I’ve even put warning notes on my knife drawers to ensure everyone in the family is careful!)
Rod sharpened two nice Shun chef’s knives for me last Wednesday during my lunch break, and I couldn’t be happier! The minor cuts on my fingers while getting used to sharp knives again are a small price to pay for having these important tools back in shape. Thanks, Rod. Wonderful service!
Last minute request to have my kitchen knives sharpened was graciously accommodated. Owner sand his wife were very pleasant; will return when I need my knives sharpened again.—
So helpful and great job
Great service and our knives are very sharp, thank you so much!
