After several purchases with Olivier from Stay Sharp, I can guarantee you impeccable customer service. It will guide you to the purchase of a Japanese blade according to your needs and budget. In addition it offers several other services such as stone sharpening. I have long before shopping at other merchants and I guarantee that I will not go any further.

Suzanne Yvon

Perfect experience from start to finish. I was able to talk with someone before I even committed to anything to get advice on what product I needed, guide me in my choice and also after my purchase for maintenance. Plenty of products available for all tastes and uses. I only buy my Stay Sharp knives from now on to support local entrepreneurship.

Francis Côté

Olivier (owner) is incredibly qualified in the field. He knows what he's selling, he knows where to point you for your knife purchases without wanting to empty your pockets. In addition to being a master in the art of sharpening knives with frankly competitive prices, he will take the time to explain in detail what good Japanese knives are! Myself as an amateur and a trippy to see all these beautiful pieces, he guided me with increased patience towards choices that I greatly appreciate every day! There's something for everyone, whether it's starting in the $100 to the collectors! I definitely recommend it and I tell you, you will not be disappointed!

Jean-Philip Lessard

Excellent service, bought multiple knives with Stay Sharp, very precise and detailed about his craft. Also had many knives with broken tips that got fixed like new. I always recommend Stay Sharp services for my cooks and friends for knives sharpening. Fast, efficient and very personal service.

Been looking for a professional for quite some time, and finally I found one. Fast Service, the knifes are razor sharp again, and they stay sharp too! He has a great collection of Japanese Knifes also! Definitely going back there!

I have bought two beautiful and authentic Japanese knives from StaySharp. One of them is my first Takeda. I was given useful advice before the purchase. The prices and selection are very good for the Canadian market, especially in the Quebec province. I really recommend!

Martin Tremblay

Stay Sharp has been my purveyor of knives since the beginning (as recommended by my chef) and not a second I've regretted my choice of choosing StaySharp! Oli, the owner of the company is a super kind and caring person and a very good seller who keeps your interests in what you're looking for in a knife in mind, if you want knives in Montreal and want to support a local seller, go for StaySharp! Great variety of knife and accessories, good prices and well after you buy your first one from him you'll never stop!
