The man knows his stuff and is very reasonable . . .


5.0 star rating - Yelp - Amazing! Brought in two knives that had been sharpened by other places, but they couldn't restore the original sharpness. Laurence did. My knives are like new and he did it while I waited. The man knows his stuff and is very reasonable. What a find. 1/11/2012, Gary L., Santa Monica, CA.


. . . Laurence did the best job of anyone . . .


5.0 star rating - Yelp - As someone who spends most of their life in the kitchen, I have a lot of expensive knives.  New to Santa Monica, I needed a new cutler to sharpen them.  I found Laurence here on Yelp, read all of these glowing reviews, and confidently brought him two of my high-end santoku knives, and about six vintage Case Bros. pocketknives (my own, plus five others that I was giving away as Christmas presents).  I have been to a lot of cutlers over the years, but Laurence did the best job of anyone so far.  I brought him dulled knives, and when I got them back they were Weapons of Mass Destruction.  As a true craftsman would, Laurence even polished up the nickel silver bolsters on the vintage Case pocketknives, so they looked new again.   His prices are in line with all of the other cutlers in the area, his service is fast and friendly, and your knives are treated with the utmost care.  As long as I live in West L.A., Laurence is my guy.  Bring your valuable steel to him with confidence. 1/27/2014, Max G, Santa Monica, CA.

The owner does sharpen knives for a ton of local chefs . . .


5.0 star rating - Yelp - . . . I now get my chef's knife and paring knife sharpened at least once a year. If you have bought an expensive set of knives over the years like I have, a place to go to and have your set properly taken care of is huge. The owner does sharpen knives for a ton of local chefs. Solid. 1/27/2014, Mitchell I., Scottsdale, AZ.



Our old knives were sharpened to perfection - and he does it at very reasonable prices.


5.0 star rating - Yelp - . . . Our old knives were sharpened to perfection - I've sharpened knifes myself at home and no way could I have duplicated his result - and he does it at very reasonable prices. Would definitely return, and recommend this place to others. 5/29/2013, Heidi N., Santa Monica, CA.
