GREETINGS

Happy Holidays! Welcome to our newly beautified website. All of our knives and stones are available for sale with prices on the Shop Page. We have added a line of beautiful Japanese carbon steel (not stainless) knives to our lineup. They are Suisen and are fantastic! Easy to sharpen yourself and they keep a great edge. Feel free to call with questions about the different knives. All knives are available to try out on carrots here in the store. It’s a great way to see what knife fits best for you before you buy. You're also welcome to a loaner knife so you can drop off all of yours instead of making 2 trips. Call ahead for availability. 

 

MY NAME IS BOB TATE,

And I sharpen knives. I currently sharpen knives for a number of restaurants here in Seattle as well as for many home cooks throughout the Northwest and beyond who appreciate a sharp knife. The knives go through a 6-7 step process which leaves them razor sharp.

I learned my sharpening technique from master Bladesmith Bob Kramer www.kramerknives.com. Bob sharpened my knives for years when I cooked for a living and recognized my passion for the craft. He generously taught me the sharpening techniques that he has perfected over the last 20 years.
