I love the feeling of being next to the wheel or at my water stones. It’s calm, precise, even meditative at times. As a proud member of the National Beauty Tool Sharpeners’ Guild, I’ve spent more than ten years refining my skills via training, seminars, theoretical discussion with other professionals in the field, and practice, practice, practice.
I learned the basics of sharpening as a teenager in southern Colorado. I came to Austin to sing and play music, and I still do that. In 2009 I educated myself further about sharpening and began offering the service professionally. Slowly and surely I’ve gained trust from clients here for over a decade.
I make a great effort to come to an understanding with every single person for whom I work. The relationship between sharpener and client has to be one of earned trust.
I’m grateful for Testimony:
Visit Knife Party and get your knives sharpened by a true craftsman at a great price.
He even re-edged a blade that was nicked and chipped to restore it its brand new look. Craftsmen like Devin are rare. Have him restore your blades to their proper cutting glory.
Our knives were sharpened to perfection…probably sharper than when originally purchased!
Right now I am in safe sharp knife heaven.
I’m now sitting in my kitchen laughing while slicing through potatoes with ease. It doesn’t hurt that he’s a really nice dude too, and seems to really care about his craft and customer.
