Knife Sharpening Services

Japanese Knife Imports is now offering a knife sharpening service. For those of you in the Los Angeles area, you are more than welcome to stop by our shop and have your knives sharpened.

For those of you who live a little further away, we may also be able to help you though a mail order service (please contact us if you are interested in taking advantage of this mail order option). Please do not send anything in to us without speaking with us first.  We have very specific directions for sending in knives, and we use an address different from our store address.

Each knife is sharpened entirely by hand using Japanese water stones. I tailor the edge to each customer, based on his/her needs and personal preferences. We utilize a mix of synthetic and natural stones, from 60 grit to over 20,000 grit, as necessary to achieve the edge our customers are looking for.

At this time, Japanese Knife Imports is only offering sharpening services for Japanese kitchen knives. If you are interested in having other knives sharpened, please check with us first. We reserve the right to refuse any knife for sharpening.
