La Mesa >Greg's Sharpening Svc
Greg's Sharpening. First of all, Greg's motto is "if it's dull, it's dangerous" and browsing through Greg's store I soon realized I wasn't in any danger because every item he owned was far from dull! There were many specialty knives, throwing knives, machetes, and if you need to take out a vampire anytime soon he even has silver stakes for sale! Some of the brands he carries are Boker, Uzi, and Anza; to name a few. He also carries some specialty knives that have Military ribbon designs on the handles of the knives. Very cool stuff! Greg is also working with the communities disabled veterans. He carries wood work made by disabled veterans and doesn't change them anything for doing so! His wife makes and sells beautiful stained glass and knit hats. His son carves stone and there are many unique stone pieces in the shop for sale. Greg's Sharpening and Cutlery is a full service shop! Greg sharpens anything that is dull! They also make copies of keys, sell used equipment, and he even has a wall of fabulous detailed wooden walking sticks! Talking with Greg we asked him how he chooses what he sells in his shop and he immediately responded with "Everything I purchase I try first and if I don't like it I will not carry it." He also said "I back up every purchase made at my store" Meaning, if you have any issues with your purchase he'd be more than willing to go above and beyond to help you solve it! Greg is all about customer service! He's been doing this since 1990 or longer; Greg knows his stuff! He started out in his garage after becoming a disabled veteran. Greg since moved his business from Spring Valley to La Mesa. He's been doing what he does best for over over 22 years! I got to check out his work station in the back of the store and, wow, he has some amazing equipment! One thing that impressed me was his 31 inch Bed Knife grinder and it was in perfect shape! Greg can handle it all and he does, well. This is truly a gem in the heart of La Mesa and I know I'll be back to talk with Greg - not as a reporter but as friend! He will make you feel the same way!
