“Terrific service, unique shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

Stoddards has now relocated to Watertown Street in Newton's village of Nonantum. It may take a bit of searching to find it, but it'll be worth the effort. You'll find an expert knife-sharpening service, free advice on caring for your knives, terrific customer service (they made sure I had my knives in time for the holidays and managed to repair a broken knife tip), and an eclectic selection of cutlery and gift items. Rare family business that honors its long history in Boston retailing. Highly recommended.

“THE BEST place to buy or sharpen kitchen knives”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2008

Stoddard's Cutlery is now at Chestnut Hill Mall on Rt. 9, not downtown. It is the oldest cutlery shop in America.
You won't find a better place to shop for excellent kitchen knives, get expert knife sharpening (at reasonable prices), and super-knowledgeable, friendly, no-pressure staff.
The shop also carries a small selection of items they find excellent--a great ice-cream scoop, hand cream for cooks, cool shaving implements, etc.--so it's a wonderful place to browse and find unique gifts. Everything I've picked up here has been just as they said it would be. It's worth a special trip.
