Mac factory resharpening

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a couple of Mac knives I bought a little over two years ago. They are holding up well, and I use a honing rod regularly. I haven't taken them to be sharpened because I haven't found any one local I trust to not screw up the angle. I was noticing that Mac offers a sharpening service at a great price. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go this route, but I was hoping to hear feedback from someone who had done it.

Anyone have any experience with this service?

I have been using MAC knives for over 10 years now. I do my own sharpening, but I have spent over an hour, on two separate occasions, talking knives and trying out different ones with Harold and his son Brian. Harold definitely knows his stuff and is genuinely a nice man.

 

He considers himself not only an educator, but a student as well, when it comes to kitchen knives. His experience and knowledge are the result of talking with tens of thousands of people, testing out every knife he can get his hands on, working with the factory, and reading many books on knives.

 

While I haven't availed myself of their sharpening service, I can't imagine it to be anything other than top notch, and no, I am not connected with them any form nor fashion. I just truly admire their product and the way they conduct their business.

Thanks for the replies. I haven't got around to shipping them off with the Holidays and all, but I should get them out this week.

 

I'm going to ahead and send them to MAC and see how it turns out, although Korin did look like a nice option as well.

 

 

I'll be sure to post back with the results.  I also think after this I need to start looking for a nice set of stones and figuring this out on my own.

 

I have a few German knives as well. Am I going to need two sets of stones ?
