Dull Knife

Looking for a local knife sharpening to put a good edge on my kitchen knives.  Anyone have any suggestions?

there used to be a local service called mr. knife guy, but it's long gone. my suggestion is to get a stone and figure out how to sharpen them yourself.  it would be a great skill to have, and you would never have the inconvenience of trying to find a knife sharpener. plus, you could sharpen my knives and charge me a small fee! (just a thought.)

Marshall Hardware can get your sharpening done.  I think they run the gamete from saw chains to pairing knifes.

git yerself a geen-u-ine ouachita whetstone and doit yerself!

my dad had a really nice set of sticks that mounted into a really nice base. it was easy to use and did a pretty good job of keeping our kitchen blades sharp.

Sweet.  I knew I loved Marshall Hardware for reasons I had yet to discover.  I'm all about learning it myself, gang, but need to start with a sharp edge.  They're really bad.

there's a bead place out in lakeside (47th-ish?) that (improbably) sharpens knives.  it was four dollars a knife and they did an excellent job.

@ Greg: that's Puukko Cutlery inside the bead store, just down the street from the New London. Nice little selection of knives, mostly puukkos from Kauhavan puukkopaja in Finland and Helle from Norway. 

I picked up my Helle there last year, and the Kauhavan puukos are excellent high carbon steel work knives. I really wish I hadn't lost mine. My guess is that it's sitting underneath a bunch of dirt in a flowerbed.

Yes, Puuko is great. The store sells other neat stuff like brain-tanned deerhide. 

That said, I really have to go over the Marshall and find out how to run that gamete!
