Following the theory portion of the class there will be hands-on sharpening with your instructor.

How it works:
-The fee for the class is $75 + tax.
-Classes start at 10am and run until 12pm.
-We encourage our students to bring their own water stones, but we will also have stones & equipment for you to use. This will give each student an opportunity to figure out exactly what they need at home to be successful in their sharpening journey.
-There will be a 10% discount on all sharpening gear and knives the day of the classes.
-Please bring your own knives to practice on. We do not supply knives for you to sharpen. A chef knife is the easiest to sharpen, a flexible knife is difficult. No serrated knives please.
