A note from a happy customer

Posted on January 29, 2015 in: Uncategorized

“Enjoyed cutting tomatoes tonight with one of the knives you sharpened this past weekend at the Brunswick Farmers’ Market. Slice! Slice! Slice! Good grief is it more pleasant to use a super-sharp knife on a tomato, rather than having a dull blade slide multiple times across the unyielding tomato skin. Cooking is fun again!”
