4.0 star rating - Yelp - Just got my knives sharpened after waaay too much neglect. Laurence not only sharpened the knives to terrifying precision, he cleaned all the gunk off them and made them look knife-block worthy again. At $8 - $9 a pop, I will be coming back. Laurence also makes custom knives. I have a terrible feeling that next time I go in I may be swayed. Trying to hold off for now. 6/28/2013, Amy E., Los Angeles, CA



. . .my knives are now as good as new.


5.0 star rating - Yelp - I thought my Wusthof and Global knives were shot after so many years.  Maybe if I got them recut.  First, I took them to REDACTED1, where the butcher offers free sharpening.  You get what you pay for.  I pretty much accused them (silently) of just telling me they sharpened them then not bothering.  At one point I bought a fancy sharpening stone and a knife book and dvd and found limited success. Then I took them to the awful REDACTED2 guy. You know who I mean.  Some of my knives came out of ok, none were great, my chefs' knives, especially my Santoku, were dull as doornails.   I was ready to get new knives.  And then, after much research, I found Laurence.  He explained to me what went wrong at REDACTED2.  THat guy literally did a hack job on my beautiful cutlery.  He used a one tool fits all approach.  Laurence, on the other hand, has a huge workshop with a large number of different sharpening devices.  He went into great detail on technique, but in the end all I cared about was my knives are now good as new.  He even sharpened my serrated bread knife, I did not even think that was possible.  Before my knives were sharp, he had me ogling some custom knives he makes that I thought I might consider as replacements.  But now that he fixed up my knives so well I don't quite need them just yet.  While not as convenient as the farmers market, his pricing is just slightly higher.  Totally worth it - I will never go anywhere else. 11/11/2013, Foodie T, Marina del Rey, CA

Friendly, quick, and knives sharpest they have been since I bought them.


5.0 star rating - Yelp - I went here after reading the Yelp reviews of the place. I was not disappointed by the service and results of my sharpness of my knives. Friendly, quick, and knives sharpest they have been since I bought them. Plus he sells his own beautiful knives he makes . . . Definitely a great Yelp find! 5/21/2013, Peter C., Marina del Rey, CA



. . . great, fast, attentive service from a real pro . .


5.0 star rating - Yelp - I took two of my knives from my set in to have them sharpened. . . . It's so nice to have them sharp again! The owner is very knowledgeable and interesting. He's a real expert and even makes knives himself. You can also have him customize a knife for you with a variety of handle materials to choose from. Definitely going back. I think it's important to support local shops like this, especially when they offer great, fast, attentive service from a real pro 4/19/2013, Steve V., Santa Monica, CA.
