This is Bradley Thibodeau, the founder & owner of Best Edge Sharpening.
Welcome to our home page! We specialize in hand crafted sharpening for professionals, home chefs and a carefully curated selection of new and vintage knives, tools, shears and accessories. I can sharpen all blades with a hand-crafted technique.
A fine-tuned technique allows me to identify subtle differences while approaching each knife sharpening differently.
My technique also allows room for modification, at not only the edge of the knife but the blade design as well. Modification is extremely helpful is the knife has sustained past damage.

Best Edge Sharpening
Hand-crafted finish, EVERY SINGLE TIME
This is the standard service and cheapest service. If you are a weekend cook or just want to extend the life of your blades, this is the service! This service can be completed within a day or two and will make the dullest of blades slicing like brand new.
All single bevel knives are sharpened by hand. This process is taken to ensure the best edge is put on your knife. Depending on the knife style, Best Edge Sharpening will finish on a different stone grit which is similar to the medium and fine stone sharpening for double-beveled knives.
Chips happen, but this doesn’t have to be the end of the road for your trusty knife. Depending on how severe the chip is, we can repair your knife without removing too much metal. This will exponentially increase the life your knife. Routinely, if the chip isn’t too large, we can remove it in our knife sharpening process without the need to charge any additional fees. If you’re not quite certain if your chipped knife of tool with cost extra, email or text us a picture of your knife and we can let you know!
After the wear and tear of repeated use and knife sharpening service, the edge of your blade will tend to move higher and higher onto the thicker handle portion of the knife. Once this occurs, the geometry of your knife will be changed such that it often can feel dull even if the edge has been freshly sharpened. When the blade starts creeping into the handle of the knife, we recommend thinning you knife. Through this process, we remove metal from the side of the blade, typically two-thirds of the way down from the bottom. Blade thinning creates a thinner bevel that will take a sharper edge and allow your knife to slice rather than wedge as you use it.
If you don’t know whether your knife is in need of thinning to restore its original blade, we recommend attempting to slice a carrot. You should be able to cleanly slice the carrot without any wedging or cracking occurring. Just like the rest of our services, if you’re not sure where your knife stands, text or email a picture to us and we’ll let you know what service (if any)
