Knife-sharpening business gets exclusive deal

Local knife-sharpening business Superior Sharpening Services was chosen as East Coast sharpening service for Shun Cutlery, Superior announced.

The business, which started in 2006 in a garage, expanded two years ago with a mobile sharpening van to work throughout the Lowcountry and Coastal Empire and is developing a mail-in service.

Shun knives are made in Japan and distributed domestically by Williams-Sonoma, Sur La Table and other high-end culinary retailers.
