  DC Sharp practices the centuries-old method of sharpening blades by hand on Japanese waterstones (aka whetstones).  This method ensures your blade is returned with the sharpest edge possible while minimizing the amount of metal that is removed from the blade.

 Our methods also allow us to repair bent, chipped and twisted blades, and the ability to customize your edge to your specific needs.  

  We are the only shop in the DC metropolitan area that specializes in the sharpening of Japanese single-bevel chisel-ground blades.

  Below is a list of our prices.  Bring your knives to our main shop at Union Market or our drop-off location at Annie's Ace Hardware. Contact us for mail-in service estimates.
