If you mail your blades some where to get them sharpened, I'd like a recommendation. A friend had her blades sharpened by a local guy and paid him something like $75 and she ended up with completely dull blades. He's tried to resharpen them 3x she said and she can't even use them. I'd be so mad and I was going to call this guy to do mine. I don't think we have anyone else local to do it.
