If you aren't familiar with David Leite, you should be.

New York Times, Martha Stewart Living, Saveur, Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, The Washington Post and many more and has won two James Beard Awards.
Earlier last year David tried Knife Flight and was so pleased he devoted one of his Leite's Loves reviews to us. Here's a few bits and pieces he wrote on our service.
"There’s something warmly nostalgic about Knife Flight, a pre-paid mail-in knife-sharpening service headed by husband and wife team Kyle and Jess Miller. It reminds me of those times, long before digital photography, when I sent in my Instamatic’s film to a processing lab in Mystic, Connecticut. I’d haunt our mailbox waiting for my square photos to be returned to me along with my negatives.
It’s not the waiting part I’m nostalgic about; Knife Flight is surprisingly quick with its turnaround time. It’s the anticipation–back then for blurry picture of my dogs Duke and Rusty; now for exquisitely sharp edges on my embarrassingly dull knives. It’s the same sort of anticipation I had every December waiting for Christmas morning–because for this cook, returning a knife to its former sharp glory is right up to getting a real Charlie McCarthy ventriloquist doll and the album “How to Become a Ventriloquist.”"
