Kashrus alert on Knife Sharpening

July 19, 2016: The cRc

Knives should only be sent for sharpening to stores which do not pose a kashrus concern. The two main concerns are that the sharpening companies tend to wash your kosher knife with other non-kosher knives, and additionally they might switch your knife with an identical non-kosher one.
More information is at www.crcweb.org/kosher_articles/knife_sharpening.php. The cRc has made an arrangement with the Cutco Kitchen retail store located at 3207 W. Lake Avenue, Wilmette, IL that Cutco Knives can be sharpened only at this location,if the consumer:

  1. makes sure their knives are clean before giving them in for sharpening,
  2. marks their knives with some identifying sign or the consumer records the 4-digit item code and the 2-letter year-code engraved on the knife, so that they can verify that the correct knives were returned to them after sharpening.
