My knives are amazing, I love them more everyday!
— Sharon - Shorewood
This is one of the best services in Milwaukee. I drop my dull things off and a day later I have wickedly sharp implements! I do all my gardening loppers and clippers every fall as well as my kitchen knives. I have been a customer for a couple of years now, and would (and do) recommend the Sharp Brothers very highly.

I used to live in Whitefish Bay and there was never any question where to get my knives sharpened: the Sharp Brothers do an amazing job for what some would call reasonable rates but what I call the lowest price you can imagine. They do it politely and, though they say 24 hour turnaround, it’s usually a matter of 3-4 hours.
When I moved to MN I shopped around and even the free sharpening at the local grocery store didn’t measure up. So now, on a trip to Whitefish Bay, I brought all my knives back and had them done here. That’s what these guys deserve: absolute loyalty. They are the real deal.

The only place in Milwaukee I trust with my knives. Very excited for their new storefront!! Congratulations!!
