Give a Gift of Sharp Knives!

A sharp knife, scissors or tools is something anyone will appreciate. So why not gift them a Sharp Choice gift certificate!

Marty's knife sharpening skills are incredible! He is professional, has a quick turnaround time, and pleasant to work with. I will definitely be using his services in the near future again for more knives and scissors.

As a butcher, Marty knows what matters when it comes to knife edges.

He set up and BOOM! 10 or 15 minutes later we had sharp knives. The quality of work was excellent; the knives were super sharp and deceptively smooth.

Have Sharpener Will Travel! 

There wasn't a time in my life that I didn't have someone close to me complaining about a dull edge, whether it was my mom the quilter complaining about her dull scissors my dad who loved to cook, or the butchers I work with at New Leaf Market in Capitola.

And so in 2019 I decided to take the leap and start my own sharpening service business. I completed a 2-week intensive training program and invested in the best tool available – a water wheel sharpener.

What's so good about water wheel sharpeners?

It's simple. Water wheel sharpeners don't heat the blade. That, in turn, allows for the sharpest blade that retains its edge the longest. 

And so it was a no-brainer. I had to have the best so you could too. 

Sharp Choice really is your best choice when it comes to sharp knives, scissors and garden tools. But don't listen to me. Read what my customers have to say.  

"For 30 years we had sharpened our knives with a Chefs Choice sharpener, but things got a lot sharper when Marty Lucich came by and put fine edges on our extensive collection of kitchen carving gear."
