Since then we grew to one of the largest cooking stores in Amsterdam and online. Our core principles haven't changed since. We want to offer the best products in all price classes, with the best service. We know our products inside out and can tell you precisely what you need.

It all started with sharpening. Since 1980 we have continuously been updating and perfecting the art of sharpening. We treat each knife with respect and sharpen them on the best angle (with almost no loss of steel). Your knife has never been as sharp.

We don't just sharpen knives! You can also bring your scissors, clippers, trimmers, and skates. For each item we got different kinds of machines to get them working like new again.
