Sharpen Your Knives with KnifeSpa {giveaway}

About a year and a half ago I finally invested in a nice set of knives. And when I say invested, I mean that I asked for them for Christmas. They’ve been great (except for the one time I cut myself and had to get stitches). Having a great set of knives makes chopping, slicing, and dicing so much faster and easier. After a year and a half though, I started to notice that the knives weren’t feeling as sharp as they used to – even though Eric regularly sharpens them for me when he puts them away.

Coincidentally, I was contacted by a company called KnifeSpa right around when I started getting annoyed with my knives. They offered to professionally sharpen all of my knives for me. It was a pretty simple process. I sent in my knives for sharpening and got them back about a week later. I kept 1 knife at home because I knew I couldn’t live that long without my knives. I sent them out just before I went out of town for a weekend so I could have a couple extra days when I wouldn’t be needing them.

When I got my knives back I was truly impressed. I could slice through a bell pepper like it was nothing. Cutting sweet potatoes for our favorite sweet potato fry recipe was no longer hard work. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t used a service like this sooner. But it was only because I hadn’t heard of them before! Want to know more about how their service works? See here.

About KnifeSpa: KnifeSpa is a service of Master Grinding Service, Inc. based in Rockaway, NJ.
