Hi all, I wonder if anyone knows of a reliable knife sharpening service in the UK, or if not the UK then Europe ? And I'm talking about someone who could tackle with confidence for example expensive Honyaki style yanagiba knives which I understand are hard to sharpen. Don't need one now, just want to know if one exists, when the need arises.
In London there is a shop called Japanese Knife Company ( http://www.japaneseknifecompany.com/
) that sells high endish Japanese knives and do sharpening as well, I went in to talk to the guy, and he didn't inspire me with confidence, so I'm not sure (but he was not the owner, just an employee there).
