  1. Wow! What a great service! Josh is very customer service oriented and so easy to work with. Dropped off my Wusthof knives on Friday and got them back on Monday. He sharpened all the knives in the set including the santoku and the bread knife and all of them can back perfectly sharpened. Also sent a set of 6 Chicago Cutlery steak knives and those turned out beautifully as well. Be warned, when your knives come back they are VERY SHARP! I cut my finger the first five minutes I used them! Just wasn’t used to having such sharp knives! I will be sending my knives back to Josh the moment they get dull again. Thanks again for a job well done! Gail D

  2. I dealt with Josh for the entire process. The experience was wonderfully smooth. I mailed my straight razor on 3 April, it arrived at REK the next day. After mailing it i realized that i had failed to pay for return shipping. I emailed Josh and let him know that I had forgotten to do so and he informed me that he would just add the cost of shipping to the cost of the honeing. One day later he had mailed it back to me and emailed me before and after pictures of my blade’s edge. Todazy is 7 April and I am waiting on the USPS to deliver the razor today. I would highly reccomend Josh and REK for anyone looking to sharpen any blade they have.

  3. I have dealt with other online sharpening services in the past with mixed results.
    Not so with Razor Edge Knives; my favorite Buck skinning knife was returned quickly and with an edge that is superior to any I’ve seen. Their customer service is second to none. It was a pleasure doing business with Josh and I will recommend REK to all of my friends. Continued success and thank you again!

  4. Just got back my Strider Karambit from Josh. This knife was used hard and had only been sharpened with a file. Blades were in Bad Shape. Josh brought the Knife back to life. Thank you Josh


  6. I had Josh Cerakote and re-profile (w/ Wicked Edge) sharpen my Gerber bowie knife. The blade was dull and rusty. He was able to bring it back to life. I was very impressed and pleased! Josh is easy to work with and is very communicative and responsive whether by email, phone, or text messaging. I will certainly turn to him for future jobs. His prices are also very reasonable when compared to other companies, I did shop around.

  7. Josh was amazing to work with I found his website about 9+ months ago. Gave him a call and spoke with him for about 45 minutes about my knives and the services he offered. He took the time to answer my questions and educate me on the geometry of knives and the difference in his sharpening methods, as compared to his competitors and the difference between my different knife styles (Traditional VS Japanese). Due to an unfortunate mishap the 1st time I got my knives professionally sharpened (they were ruined and replaced by shop), I’ve been very leery when finding someone new. Through our talk and his website I felt comfortable with his services, but as life often does it got in the way and it took me almost a year to send my knives in. We sent in 3 Viking, 3 Shun, and a set of Kershaw kitchen shears. He emailed us when he received them. Called us with different sharpening options, and emailed us when they were sent back out. He also answered my 3-4 emails I had in the interim within an 8 hour period. All of the knives prior to being sent out couldn’t cut a regular sheet of printer paper. After I got them back they could all cut a piece of paper from the telephone book which is considerably thinner. Hands down the best service, I wish shipping was a little cheaper (not that he can help these cost), but I felt his prices for sharpening considering the turnaround and quality are very fair. Try Josh’s services out, you won’t be disappointed.

  8. It has been over 30 years that I’ve owned my Wustoff-Trident cutlery set. It also has been a long time since I had such ease in using them. Folks a sharp knife is a Godsend, and the man to get them in proper order is Josh! I am so pleased with how they came back. I will be a repeat customer!

  9. Just wanted to say that Josh put an incredible mirror edge on my Schrade SCH42, and I had it back in my greedy hands in two days flat! I then added a set of custom Micarta scales, which brought a budget knife into a “custom knife” state of being. Thanks again Josh for the quick and fantastic job you did on my SCH42! I’ll try sending a few pictures through your contact section.

  10. Praise the Lord… I finally found someone to sharpen my scissors! I’m a professional window treatment gal and had to keep buying scissors because they got dull & didn’t know where to take them. Fabric shops will sometimes have a “free-lance” sharpener there for a day or two but I always missed my opportunity. Finally found Joshua on the internet & was amazed he was in such close proximity & the drop-off & pick-up system he has with the UPS store worked great for me. And boy when he says ‘razor sharp” he means it! These scissors are sharper than they ever were. My favorite pair are from Cutco & I paid dearly for them but absent-mindedly tried to cut through a pin…… totally ruined the cutting edge! I was so distraught since I had only had them a short while. I am soooo grateful for Josh’s precision sharpening. Thank you Joshua!

  11. Josh is the man !!! Not only did he do an absolutely amazing job sharpening and repointing many of the knives I sent him but his anodizing skills left my heavily worn ADV mini butcher looking like a brand new knife. His attention to detail and constant communication left me feeling like I was sitting across from him and not 800 miles away. Thanks Josh.

  12. Amazing edge! Amazing price! Amazing turn-around! Amazing customer service and knowledge! Did I mention an amazing edge!

    Highly Recommended!

  13. I found Josh’s service from my knife forum and watching other knife collectors from YouTube. I have always had problems with thinning out the edges on my Buck pocketknife made in the 1970’s. The steel was so hard, I could never get them hair popping sharp. Not anymore! I sent Josh my Buck Cadet 3-blade slip joint, and WOW! It is razor sharp! Much better than any factory edge I have ever seen. Josh puts a 15-degree profiled edge on that you will be able to maintain for a very long time. Try his service, you will not be disappointed!! Fast turnaround and mail time as well. Thanks so much Josh!!

  14. I was blown away by the quality that josh put into sharpening my buck knife. Great customer service aswell. Josh has my business from now on. And I will be telling all of my friends.

  15. I just got my strider smf back from Josh, he did an amazing job. Its sharper than when it was brand new.


  16. ridiculous, josh is a magician.I have never seen such a good sharpening job. Had it back to me in a week . He is great you wont be dissapointed. Changed the bevel angle after a bad sharpening job. Razor sharp and completely symetrical…. amazing….

  17. Got a used Sebenza 21, my grail knife, with a bad edge. Didn`t want that semi convex stuff, so i sent it to Josh for reprofiling and sharpening. Now, what can i say? Well, the term “beyond words” don`t even cover it! Not only is his work over the top in quality. He is also fast, polite and professional in everything revolving his business! I sent my knife from Norway. And, without me asking for it, he sent me a mail when the knife arrived safe at his place, just to let me know! So from now on, this is THE guy my knifes will be sent to for work! I guess it also speaks quite a bit of how happy i am with his work, when i gladly pay over 60 USD just for the postage, to have them sharpened here!

  18. Sent in my ZT 0804CF because I had seen a previous example of REK’s work on that model. I asked for a sharpening choil to be added, stonewash/remove DLC, and reprofile of the edge. REK did an amazing job and I love the knife even more than I did.
