Premier Sharpening is a mobile sharpening service located in Houston,Texas and service the greater Houston area. They go to your home or place of business and sharpen your items in one of their vans. This process usually takes approximately 30 minutes, depending on the amount of items to be sharpened. They sharpen knives, scissors, and garden tools.

Premier Sharpening was founded by Steve Borne in the fall of 2008. This family-owned and operated business was grown out of a passion for sharp knives in the kitchen - possibly from the long history of professional chefs in the family!

Steve's grandfather, Russell Borne, was Head Chef at the famous International House in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Steve’s father, Russell Borne, Jr., started his career there. He also owned and operated his own restaurant. So of course, Steve grew up in the kitchen and worked at his father’s restaurant after school and on weekends. Steve inherited these great culinary skills and passed them on to his sons.

Both of Steve’s sons, Dawson and Ethan, are in the family business. They both love cooking and sharpening as much as their father and enjoy hearing their customers say how sharp they get their knives!

Rhonda, Steve’s wife, left the corporate world in 2014 and joined Premier Sharpening full-time.  Rhonda’s corporate background gives their family-owned business a boost by making appointments, keeping the mobile sharpening schedule organized, and reaching out to chefs, tailors, quilters and caterers to let them know about this very needed service.

Steve can be found every Saturday at Urban Harvest Farmers’ Market from 8:00 AM - NOON putting a sharp edge (and fixing chips and nicks) on his customer’s knives, garden tools and scissors.
