Sharpening Services

Albert Edmonds has over 18 years of sharpening experience. He sharpens all blades free hand -- no jigs or angle guides are used -- for two reasons: 

  1. Knives have different angles, requiring different techniques. Albert has learned to identify subtle differences to approach each knife uniquely.

  2. Free hand sharpening allows modification, not only of the edge but the blade design, especially if the knife has sustained damage. Albert's acclaimed skill set ensures precise bevels and clean edges.

To produce the best edge possible, Seattle Edge tools are custom made for its proprietary multi-step process. A chef's knife will be sharpened and finished differently than a sushi knife, which will be different than a father's fishing knife.
