Star Knife Sharpening: sharpening
Different knives different angles. In short if it is a Western made knife such as Wusthoff, Henckels, Sabatier and others,
we will sharpen at 17 degrees primary bevel and add a 20 degrees secondary, if it is a Japanese knife, such as Shun, Global, Kikuichi and others, 17 degrees or thinner. Whatever the knife is, Star will always deliver a Japanese style edge, which we found
being much sharper, easier to maintain and more durable.
Yes, Star specializes in restoring knives, chipped blades, broken tips, bad sharpening, re-serration. Unfortunately Star does not fix handles, replacing/fixing a handle is pretty much the cost of a new knife.
Yes we can, by thinning the back of the teeth, we expose more of the teeth with a thinner edge the knife become sharper. If the teeth are worn out we will recreate a serration.
