About Knife Life

Established in Melbourne in early 2020, Knife Life has been providing kitchen knife sharpening services to customers who value their high performance cooking tools. Using traditional sharpening methods, blades are coaxed gently by hand on whetstones, always respecting each blade's unique properties and the knife maker's intent. Combining this art with science has consistently produced unparalleled sharpness.

It is this standard of excellence that has provided the constant growth towards the business we are today, serving home cooks and professional chefs alike.

We have now extended our services to offer a range of quality and affordable Japanese knives, specifically selected by us, to help promoting their superior performance in Australia.

Now, sustainability being a matter close to our heart, we also collect unwanted knives to give them a second life or have them recycled.
