Knife Sharpening


I am now operating out of my home. You may bring your knives, wrapped in newspaper or a towel (to keep them safe) to my back patio and drop them off. My address is 241 Windover Grove Dr. Memphis, TN 38111. I’m on the northwest corner (?) of a circular drive, accessed ONLY from the west side of Highland, just south of Poplar. There is a north entrance and a south entrance, both are between brick columns with a WINDOVER GROVE plaque between 2 crepe myrtles.

241 Windover Grove Dr.

Pull in to the end of the driveway and go into the patio on the left. There is a silver receptacle (trash can) marked One Sharp Dude. Leave your knives there and call me at 901-258-8211. I usually turn them around in 24-48 hours, then call you when they’re ready.


All work is done initially on the TruHone machine which uses rotating honing stones for an equal bevel on both sides of the knife through the length of the blade. Knives are then polished to a fine edge using an old-fashioned leather barber strop.

Suggested donation is $6/knife and $10/scissors. If you would like to make a donation, please have cash or make check out to Steve Collins. Don’t leave any money until your tools have been sharpened. Thanks.
