Knife Sharpening: Where to go in Vancouver?

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry to anyone who opened this thread and found no explanation, i swear i wrote a post, somehow it didn't get posted!

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any reputable places in Vancouver to get knives sharpened? I have pretty good quality knives (global, henckel) that desperately need sharpening!

Thank you

Megan

Not sure where you live in Vancouver but Market Meats -2326 W. 4th in Kits (across from Safeway) sharpens knives and does a decent job. I would ask them about the Globals though as I'm not sure if the angle is the same as the German knives.

There used to be a mobile knife sharpening service that was well reviewed called Knifex but I think they have either changed names or are out of business.

I just took mine to House of Knives in Park Royal. I know it's a chain, but they did an excellent job.

I'd also be interested to know if anyone in Vancouver is good with sharpening good Japanese knives.

Anybody have their knives sharpened at the Sharpening House on West Blvd? The Meat Market is in my neighbourhood, so that is an option as well. Where did the original poster end up going? Were you happy with the job? For what it is worth, my knives are henckel.

I've had success with a mobile truck called "Mobile Edge", Rod was very professional, but don't know if he's still around.

For Japanese knives, check out this guy:

You can always try to contact kitano enterprise. Their provide a decent service. However, I recommend that you buy yourself a sharpening stone and do it yourself.

I was at Knife Bar in Calgary, and they're talking about opening a place in Vancouver. If so, they're qualified to handle Japanese knives (I'd trust them with mine).
