Next Day Service (Pickup Service or Secure Drop-box)

Be sure to wrap your knives in an old towel and put them in a bag with your name and phone number. See video.

1st time customer…dropped off a custom fillet knife and an old Bruks axe…both in dire need of blade repair and sharpening. Erik did an amazing job repairing both and putting the appropriate edge on each. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the price and quality of the workmanship. Will be a return customer👍👍

Erik’s excellent service was sharpened by his vibrant knowledgeable personality. Erik dropped by our place, picked up the knives and returned them sharp as promised, within a couple of days. Highly recommended. Will use again for sure.

Had a set of 25 yr old aerated Ginzu knives, they needed some serious TLC. Erik at Cove performed a very quick (24hrs) service and the results are excellent. Highly recommend Cove.
