Zach told me I could also nominate a place from last year's list. So this is about the only place from last year I can get behind. Zach bought me a knife last year and I was really skeptical. I was honestly afraid I was going to cut myself (like he did). Did I mention that he cut two fingers the first day he used his? But now that I'm used to it it's so much better. I make him take our junky knives in to get sharpened and they come back sharp. Sometimes we bring them to the knife sharpener at the farmers market and they don't come back near as sharp. Phoenix Knife House deserves another FNA.

No joke those knives are sharp. I did cut myself. Twice. Here's the picture to prove it.


Again, we're not in cahoots here. She took a look at the list and came up with a fine nomination. And a way to publicly shame me at the same time. Touche, darling. Touche... :mrgreen:

I still go every few months to get mine sharpened. I would go more but I cannot justify it and I am banned from buying more knives. (It was so much easier before I was married). This place is awesome, their service is great and their products are unique in the valley.

Duh. The only place to get fantastic knives...and to get them sharpened. I sent my husband in there blindly before our anniversary last year (hey, it was our 6th, which is "steel," so what better gift, right?). He had no idea what he was doing, but said they were so incredibly helpful; made the whole process easy. (And hey, I got three great Japanese knives out of the deal!)

I think Phoenix Knife House is precisely the kind of place that's easy to neglect when it comes to posting. How many times can you say, "Yeah, they did an awesome job with my knife." And I'm guilty of that as well. But such a great shop, run by such knowledgeable and friendly folks -- local culinary resources don't get any better than this. Absolutely... no question on renewal. +1 from me!
