Welcome to Precision Knife Sharpening! 

Too often, the most used tools of both the home and professional kitchen are not properly maintained. Precision Knife Sharpening was founded by chef and culinary instructor, Dave Arnold, so that cooks could realize their potential in the kitchen using tools that perform at their best.

How does it work?
This is a mail-order service. After placing your order online, simply package your knives and mail them directly to Precision Knife Sharpening. Upon receipt, skilled craftsmen will sharpen your kitchen and sport knives to the perfect angle and mail them back to you typically within one business day. You will receive email communications throughout the process informing you of the status of your order. (Note: Customers in the Washington, DC area may drop off their knives in person.)

Why have your knives professionally sharpened?
All knives lose their edge over time, even if you use a sharpening steel on a regular basis. Periodic sharpening by professionals will ensure that your knives have the proper angle and will help the blades maintain their edge longer.

Craftsmanship and Service
We use a state of the art sharpening system that removes the least amount of metal from the blade and provides a consistently sharper, durable edge at the proper angle. Your knives will be sharpened by experienced craftsmen who will help you protect your investment.
