I see that most of these posts are really old! I have been talking my knifes there the last 6 years. Now that Cliff has bought the business a lot has changed, Anthony who works in the shop is REAL ANAL when it comes to sharpening. REAL perfectionist. Slip him a a couple extra bucks "per knife" in the tip jar and tell him you would like the finer belts and you will get an edge you can shave with and a mirror edge.. Too bad they lost their lease and are looking for a new location. I hope they won't go the way like other Austin institutions of the past.
If you value your knives do not take them here to be sharpened. They will grind to much of the blade to get an edge that does not last. Of the six knives I took in to be sharpened five of the blades was ground till the blade lost its original shape. It took less than twenty minutes for them to ruin almost $700.00 worth of blades. Two Benchmade, two HK's and one Boker.
