 I manage a cooking and nutrition education program where we offer cooking and food skills education to low income Mainers. We used Knifing Around to sharpen ~60 knives. Asa came to our office and picked up our knives to sharpen. Asa is professional, quick to respond and very polite. I highly recommend Knifing Around for knife sharpening.
