Frequently Asked Questions

Some Frequently-Asked questions our first-time residential customers often Have about our
knife-sharpening service.

FAQ #1: Are my knives worth sharpening?

Some are and some aren’t. Our rule of thumb is that if you like it, and you can’t replace it for $6, it’s worth sharpening.

At SHARPVAN, we’re just like you. We don’t want to throw knives away if we don’t have to. Quality knives are not inexpensive, and even modestly-priced knives from reputable manufacturers can be sharpened many times during their useful lifespans. So, chances are, if you have us sharpen your knives, you’ll end up with virtually new cutting edges for a tiny fraction of the cost of replacing your current cutlery. And yes… we repair knives, too!

FAQ #2: How much will sharpening my knives cost?

Curbside sharpening is just $89 for up to 10 knives, and just $7 per knife thereafter. Compare our prices to the cost of a new set of knives, and you will see why SHARPVAN customers keep coming back to us year after year. Save money while maintaining your investment!

FAQ #6: Can you sharpen knives with chips or broken tips?

Absolutely! We can repair and sharpen knives with chipped edges or broken tips. Our skilled technicians carefully reshape the blade to remove chips and repair tips while maintaining the knife’s integrity.

FAQ #7: How often should I get my knives sharpened?

The frequency of knife sharpening depends largely on how often you use your knives and the type of cutting you do. Here are some general guidelines:

  1. For Home Cooks: If you cook regularly at home, sharpening your knives every 6 to 12 months is typically adequate. This ensures that your knives are always in good condition, making cooking more enjoyable and safer.
  2. For Professional Chefs: In a professional setting where knives are used more intensively, sharpening might be needed more frequently, such as every 2-3 months. This helps maintain the optimal performance required in a fast-paced kitchen environment.
  3. For Light Users: If you use your knives infrequently, you may only need to sharpen them every 1-2 years. However, it’s still important to periodically check their sharpness.
  4. Regular Honing: In between sharpenings, it’s beneficial to use a honing steel regularly (like once a week for home cooks or daily for professionals) to maintain the edge of the blade.
  5. Signs to Watch For: Pay attention to how well your knives perform. If they start to crush or bruise foods instead of slicing cleanly, or if you find yourself applying more force than usual, it’s probably time to get them sharpened.

FAQ #8: Is there any risk of damaging my knives during sharpening?

While there is always a minimal risk involved in any kind of knife maintenance, professional sharpening services like SHARPVAN minimize this risk significantly.

Are Saying

This guy is incredible!!

I have purchased knives from him twice and referred family to him as well. I have not had him sharpen for me, but his knowledge of different steels, blade angles and manufacturers is superb. I live out of his usual service area and dealt with him by phone. He had all the time in the world to help me select the right knives, and I received them within a couple days. If the service you receive is what I received, you will be thrilled with your experience

Steve M.

My Wusthof Knives are so sharp!

I have to warn guest before they use them! Jeremy did a great job. As well as fix a knife that was previously damaged due to sharpening from another company (that I will never use again) Will be using SharpVan everytime!

Angela Vaughan

Excellent service and work!

Jeremy puts a fresh edge on my residential Wusthof blades, elevating my home food-prep game.

While I use a steel to maintain an edge, I was overdue for a grind. Jeremy met me out the back gate of my condo development on his way home from restaurant sharpening. On my first visit, I met him in a restaurant parking lot. Good to know that he is trusted by professionals.

Erik F.

I am so happy I found this service!!!

We have a nice set of very expensive Japanese knives that were poorly sharpened by another service. Fortunately, Sharpvan was able to repair the damage done! Thank you for your kindness and patience. Most of all thank you for knowing your craft! Your pride of ownership shines through in your work. I will never trust another “professional” service with my knives. You have a customer for life.

Penny Brown

The absolute best service you can find.

Jeremy is the man. Super professional and very pleasant to work with. Pita valley will be a customer for a very long time!

Hussein Osman

First time user and very satisfied customer!

Jeremy took the time to tell me which knives and scissors were worth sharpening and why, as well as showing me a better technique for cutting more efficiently. He arrived on time, worked quickly, did an excellent job and charged a very reasonable price. I will add him to my annual list of maintenance tasks. Nice to have someone reliable!

Diane Monteser

What a difference in cutting. I am very pleased with the knives sharpened by them.

I went to a class on barbecuing and the chefs said to have your knives sharpened by a professional. Then tune them up after each using with a sharpening rod.

Richard M.

I had Jeremy sharpen my knives and I’m so glad I did.

What a difference a sharp knife makes! So glad I didn’t spend a lot of money to replace mine.

Sarah Moore

Jeremy made my knives like new again!

He is very polite and responsive. Called and he was able to sharpen same day. I highly recommend this service. It is not expensive and worth not having to invest in sharpening tools that can’t come close to how sharp Jeremy can get the knives.
