A few words from our clients


Hi, Kevin. I told my husband about your service today and he wanted me to add to what I said. So please include below: It was so convenient being able to drop off my knives, go do my errands, and come back to pick them up! Kevin made it easy for me to maximize my time today. Really loved this mobile sharpening service! (We really like your mobile sharpening)

Jude Thorn


My gardening tools needed to be sharpened. Kevin came by the same day and sharpened everything on location. His prices were fair, too!

Roy Smith - Gardener


Any restaurant not investing in On Point Cutlery's knife exchange service is missing out on a key time and money saver.

Marsha Singer - Professional Chef


We were going to buy new knives to replace our old ones but Kevin saved the day and our money.

David Allen - Bar Owner


I am a professional dress maker and I needed my dress shears to be razor sharp. Kevin impressed me with his knowledge and helped answer all of my questions.

Lindsay Spice - Bridal Dress Maker


I started a small teaching kitchen to teach people the skills of cooking. After using our set of knives for many classes it was time to get them sharpened. I had no idea we could have someone do it for us. Thanks, Kevin!
