Austin's Knife Sharpest specializes in giving knives and tools a razor sharp edge! We offer fast and convenient sharpening for Austin and the surrounding areas. In shop, we offer a drop off service with about an hour turn around rate. We also offer knife and tomahawk throwing classes with one on one instruction by the shop's owner, Cliff Hill.
Established in 1988, Knife Sharpest was founded by a father and son team with a mutual passion for sharp knives. They first worked together providing their 'sharp' services to the great city of Austin, Texas out of a mobile trailer. In February of 2014, a new business "Austin's Knife Sharpest", was started by Cliff Hill. The business still uses the same machines and equipment that have delivered razor sharp edges for all these years.
Cliff moved to Austin in 2006 as a competition knife thrower, and weapons instructor at South Austin Karate. He is a dedicated member of the International Knife Throwers Hall Of Fame, a THREE time inductee, a board member, and is certified as a Master Thrown Weapons Instructor by that organization. In 2009 he began working and learning professional sharpening skills at Knife Sharpest and is now the current owner of Austin's Knife Sharpest.
