Apparently he told her the knives might get scratched by the procedure he uses to sharpen knives. She didn’t think to ask me if that was ok as she assumed it would be within reason. When we received the knives back, they are all sharp but have a line of scratches up the blade of each of them. 2 are Henckels professional and a shun plus a cutco and the heirlooms. Is this normal? What machine was used to do such damage? It looks like a bench grinder was used because the bevel is no longer straight. Is there a way to fix this? I realized after the fact that these companies all offer sharpening services but now that the damage is done they can no longer help.
