A Maestranzi Sons Knife Services - Maestranzi is one of the oldest knife-sharpening names in Chicago. We are known for our Old World Craftsmanship and hand-edged blades. We combine cutting-edge technology with traditional Italian knife-making techniques to produce world-class cutlery that are a cut above the rest. We also offer a variety of kitchen equipment services to food service professionals in the Chicagoland area.  OUR HISTORY  There is a certain refinement to sharpening a blade that can’t be mastered with automation.It’s that essential human touch that gives Maestranzi-sharpened knives their cutting keenness. The Maestranzi family has been providing knife-sharpening services for four generations, dating back to over a hundred years ago in Trentino, Italy. In 1926, they traveled to Chicago to pursue the Knife business there. With hard work and some luck, what began on the family horse and wagon soon became a successful knife-sharpening business that continues to provide quality knives to kitchens all throughout the Chicagoland. To this day, they remain true to their roots and edge, scale and handle each blade by hand and give them that old-fashioned grindstone finish. “We take great pride in our Old World Craftsmanship.” says John Maestranzi Sr, who has been working in the family business since he was 8 years old. “Each knife is edged and honed by hand, which is more time-consuming than methods used by others. But no one can argue with our results: truly superior knife edges – sharper and more durable than those honed by high-production machine sharpening.” John has since passed the torch onto his sons Johnny and Jake. They continue to uphold the techniques and values that have defined the Maestranzi brand for years. What makes Maestranzi Sons unique, is the craftsmanship they bring to the sharpening process. Their partner and “Master Grinder”, Eddie Sandoval, has been with John Sr. since he started the business back in 1991. He is the skilled expert behind every sharpened knife that leaves the shop. His expertise along with the Maestranzi family experience, is what sets them apart from other knife companies. Whether it’s your local butcher shop or a complete restaurant chain, Maestranzi Sons is dedicated to providing the best quality and service. Maestranzi-honed knives hold their edge so you can cut through your biggest challenges with finesse. -
