I just received and unpacked the knives you sharpened for me. I had wondered if the stainless Zwilling knives were worth the effort to sharpen. I will never wonder again. Unbelievable is the only word that remotely describes what you did to them. I'm almost afraid to use them. They look like razors and feel even sharper. Thanks for the remarkable job.
This is a bit delayed, but about a month ago you sharpened some of our knives. It was the first time we used your service via the UPS store on Capitol hill. I did it as a surprise for my hubby who was about to return from a 2 month trip back home in Italy and who is the primary cook in our house. Our knives have never been sharpened professionally, which I'm sure you could see, and they came back so beautiful, honed like jewelery! It has been such a pleasure to use them and feel them effortlessly walk through anything we are preparing. I've shared my experience with friends and will be back soon with the rest of our knives, and then regularly after that. All the best to you and again, thanks for the beautiful work and quick service.
Bob Tate, you have ruined me forever. I'm not sure I'll be able to use a knife you haven't worked on ever again. Seriously. I have some seriously sharp knives, but none of them cut like the low to mid-range knives you worked on and returned in only a couple of days. I usually prefer thin blade Japanese style knives, but the thick blade Mundial you sharpened cuts better, cleaner, and without any sort of splitting action than almost anything else I've used. And the knives look great too. The little bit of polishing really improves the look and seems to make the knives cut more smoothly as well. I don't know how you do it, but please don't ever stop.
Bravo sir, bravo.
"Better than new" is an oft used phrase, but seldom literally true. This is one occasion when it is! Thanks for the great work sharpening my knives. I'd forgotten what a pleasure it is using such well honed tools.
I have just used your service for the first time and I'm extremely pleased with the results. I sent you my worst knives, the ones that caused a frown when they were used and never held an edge. It was easier to just use a boning of fillet knife for everyday use. So they just sat in the block for years. I can now reach for my chef's knife with confidence, knowing that I will actually be able to slice a tomato!
I've just finished washing all the Global knives you sharpened and they look great. The principal reason I'm e-mailing you is to express my appreciation for your work on my 2 Smith and Wesson knives and my K-bar. The finish on my Smith and Wesson knives is much better because of you work, but most importantly to me is the work you performed on my K- bar knife. I was given that knife when I was six and my grandfather didn't allow me to sharpen it until I was nine. I started climbing mountains when I was 14 and that knife went with me to every mountain including Mt. McKinley in Alaska. That knife is very special to me and I've now passed it on to my son. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the beauty you've restored to my K-bar.

I just got my knives and food processor blades sharpened by Bob. He had my knives done in 1 day! One of my wood handles was splitting and he did an amazing job repairing it and now it's almost like new. I can't recommend him enough.

For Christmas this year, I gave my son a Shun 8 inch santoku. He dropped while cooking and broke the tip. He was really frustrated about it and didn't know what to do about it. After I suggested that a knife sharpener might be able to fix it, he found your website. After receiving the knife from you, he was amazed at how you'd restored it to it's original condition and he suggested I try your service. I picked up the five knives you sharpened for me and was similarly impressed with your work. The henckles you sharpened for me were every bit as sharp as the new Shun and those blades had a few miles on them. Most impressive. You certainly have a new devoted customer and some who will highly recommend your service to others. Thanks.
