Perfect Edge Cutlery & Sharpening Services

Part of our innovation has been creating a diversity of access points to all for professional sharpening and restoration services. We provide this not only in our local region but also around country!  



At our San Mateo location, you can drop off knives for sharpening. Typically, the turn around is the next business day, but during the COVID19 pandemic, we have sharpening while you wait. Click here to see service prices and times of availability.
This is the number one choice for all cutlery owners, but also for non-knives: we regularly sharpen food processor blades, mandolin blades, immersion blender blades, scissor and shears of all types, including professional hair-cutting/grooming shears, axes, chisels, chipper blades, and of course gardening tools like pruners and loppers - and yes, even decorative swords. If it has an edge, we likely can sharpen it.
If you are not sure, please contact us with your questions about sharpening, and we will be happy to help you.  



Over the years, Perfect Edge has established regional partnerships that serve as alternative locations for sharpening service.
Customers can access the same service provided in our San Mateo store, at different places across the Bay Area.
Specific locations vary with their service dates: some hold weekly, biweekly, or monthly recurring appointments. Please plan to drop off any day before the scheduled service date, and pick up any day after. Due to variance in our commercial routes, the sharpening technician visiting that day cannot guarantee times for service.
Please check out our drop-off locations here for the specific times and place.



One of the earliest efforts at expanding access to our sharpening services, Perfect Edge hosts monthly appearances at different Farmers' Markets regionally.

Currently, we are hosted by three in the Bay Area: Temescal in the east Bay, Palo Alto on the peninsula, and Saint Helena's in the valley.

25 years ago, the original business model was simply this service; and out of an old station wagon too!

Our comprehensive service offered today is a product of Perfect Edge's origins and its prized innovative vehicle, pun intended. Mobile sharpening has now become the staple model for many professional kitchens. 

We run daily routes up and down the San Francisco Bay Area, maintaining appointments and independent service calls. Click above or here to find out more.


The Perfect Edge Cutlery has done more than sell and sharpen knives. The PE Network has crisscrossed the country over the years. Like our regional drop-off partners, but more like us as a business.

The Perfect Edge Network, therefore, came about by partnering with aspiring entrepreneurs who demonstrate the skill and dedication to the trade, and the creative spirit to grow.

It only made sense to network our service product, proprietary technology, training, and support so that professional, reliable, high-quality sharpening came to the towns and cites across the country.
