Bernal Cutlery owner Josh Donald, 40, has been sharpening knives professionally for 15 years.

Originally opened in 2005 in Bernal Heights, Bernal Cutlery relocated to the Mission in May 2013. Owner Josh Donald, 40, uses a time-intensive and traditional Japanese whetstone method to sharpen knives and avoids what he calls the “quick and dirty grinder” method.

Bernal Cutlery will offer classes on Japanese whetstone sharpening, western knife sharpening to basic knife sharpening for kids through October. Visit their classes page for a list of upcoming workshops.
