Please note: Stoddard's has been in the Nonantum area of Newton (5 minutes off the Mass Pike) for a few years!!!
Stoddard's is the gold standard for sharpening knives the old fashioned way, by hand. Any home chef will need to have his/her knives sharpened every few years (and not just honed with a steel). The store also has a complete range of knives for sale plus an eclectic collection of shaving equipment, scissors, garden shears, etc.
