"Turned over my late 80s vintage knives to Juan and had them back two hours later. None had ever been professionally resharpened and three had serated blades. He did a fabulous job. Better than new! And the mobile van made it so convenient."

"He brought my kitchen knives back to life! 4 knifes in about an hour razor edge. Will use him again when my kitchen knives get dull again."
