Knife Sharpening at Skarpari

We are accepting limited knife sharpening by appointment & curbside drop-off/pickup only.​

We use the Tormek sharpening system. It utilizes a water-cooled stone to ensure there is no damage to the temper of the steel by overheating it. We use jigs to ensure we can reproduce any exact sharpening angle.
