Hello there! My name is Guy, and I am the owner and operator of The Ronin Edge, providing mobile sharpening services throughout the Coachella Valley. When not running around sharpening, I am busy in my shop making custom knives. My knives have become very popular with many of our talented local Palm Springs chefs. While my primary focus is Japanese inspired kitchen knives i also create hunting knives and tactical knives. I am very excited to share my passion with all of you and look forward to seeing you in one of our upcoming workshops.

Sincerely,

Guy Mindle
