The Diamond Edge was created in 2008 to provide a knife sharpening service to the area's residential customers. We have evolved to include the area's commercial customers as well Explore our website and you will see we offer three ways to use our service. "No appointment " business hours drop-off, and a five knife mininum pick-up, sharpen and delivery service, both available to residential as well as commercial customers.
If a commercial customer, a knife rental program is available which provides the knives and semi-monthly sharpening for one monthly fee. The demands on residential knives are different than a commercial user, but the sharpening of the knives is the same. The sharpest edge possible. Welcome to The Diamond Edge.
From the day you purchase a new knife or have it re-sharpened, the first time you use it, it is beginning to go dull. There never has been a knife which never needs sharpening. Ask any Chef you know, they will tell you that their knives have to be re-sharpened. Many customers come to me, almost apologizing for the condition of their knives edges and wonder if they are worth saving. First, I don't sharpen sharp knives. Second, you bought knives loving them when they were new. Well, lets bring the love you had for them back. Lets get them sharpened, and enjoy cooking once again.
"We have a Commercial Program but We love our Residential customers"
How do we sharpen them? We feature the "Edge Pro" the"Cadillac" of
manual sharpening systems, and the Swedish built Tormek T7 wet wheel
grinding system. Both methods result in, no burn marks, no distortion, no
weakening of the metal from excessive heat........just a very sharp and
polished blade edge.
" We will treat your Knives as if they were our own"
We now sharpen serrated knives, however there are a few limitations. Knives with serrations with greater then 1/8 inch such as the bread knife shown above, we can sharpen. The steak knives included in a set with serrations so small that they were created by the manufacturer rolling a dye on the edge of the knife, we can not sharpen. If you have a favorite bread knife or any large serrated knife and it has lost its ability to cut, The Diamond Edge can bring it back to life.

Cleaning, Care and Storage of Knives
We recommend that, to preserve a knife's edge, you wash it by hand with warm water and detergent, rinse and dry by hand with a towel.
To extend the edge's life, we also recommend that knives be stored in a knife block, or if stored loose in a drawer, the edge be covered with a blade guard.
Finally, the use of a good ceramic "steel" is recommended, to straighten out the thin edge which even simple everyday use can distort. It will extend that sharpness of your knife. Use it often.
Keep your knives sharp and Enjoy cooking once again!
