Fall farmers’ market sharpening

Posted on September 3, 2017 in: Uncategorized | Post Comment







The farmers markets I sharpen at are open thru October and have lots of products even late into the season.  After that I will be at the Brunswick Winter Market and Falmouth.

We will have some sharpening venues at garden centers and gourmet cookware stores too.

Our online calendar will be updated soon with where to find us over the winter.

Our shop in South Portland is open year round.



Garden Club Sharpening

Posted on June 1, 2017 in: Uncategorized | Post Comment








Monday we are sharpening at a Waterville Garden Club.

Members have stuff sharpened while they attend a regular club meeting. They drop their dull tools etc off before going to the meeting and we sharpen them while they meet. We set up outside so to not disrupt the meeting.

There is no fee for this service to the club as individual members pay our regular retail prices for sharpening.

We do about a dozen of these a year. They are very popular. We have dates available.

When removing a knife from a magnetic bar tip the sharpened edge off the bar first so you don’t dull it.

Always include a penny when gifting a knife

Posted on December 3, 2016 in: Uncategorized | Post Comment









“There is a folklore superstition regarding the giving of a knife as a gift. If the knife is given to a friend, money must be exchanged as well. It is considered very bad luck to give someone a knife without exchanging money or the friendship will be cut by the knife. Because of this superstition, it is common that the gift of a knife will be given along with a penny, nickel or dime in the box with the knife so that the recipient can give back the coin, thereby saving the friendship from being severed by the giving of the sharp blade. The exact background of this superstition is unclear yet; even today most people will include a coin with the gift of a knife and request the coin be given back. The apparent view is that it is far better to be safe than sorry.”
