Knife Sharpening Service

Knife Sharpening Service

Almost any good knife can be bought back to nearly new with proper professional knife sharpening and Abraxas Cookshop can provide this service in any of our stores.

We can resharpen any size blade of knife and give it a new lease of life.

We can sharpen any good quality, taper ground knife with Japanese or European blades. Generally, even the most blunt blade can be sharpened to an almost new state.

Unfortunately we cannot sharp serrated edged knives, or those with a “hollow ground” edge. Also chips in the blade or bends in the tip cannot be resharpened.

Tips to keep your knives in good order

  • Sharpen and hone regularly
  • Always wash by hand and immediately dry thoroughly.
  • Store safely in a proper knife rack or block.
