Participants in this class will learn to hone their own knives to perfection. A sharpening stone and honing oil is required, and included in the price of the class. Bring your quality chefís knife and paring knife to class, as well as any others you wish to learn to sharpen. Should you want Eric to professionally sharpen and bring your knives back to life, you may arrange that during class.
Eric's sharpening experience spans 30 years. Born in England, raised in Germany, his love affair with all things sharp began in boyhood, grew with him through military service to the Queen, and comes to fruition in his sharpening booth at the Berkeley and El Cerrito Farmers Markets. In just over two years he has sharpened over 2000 knives, tools and scissors. He works for catering companies and restaurants, quilters and taxidermists, gladly sharing his true wealth of historical, cultural, and scientific knowledge about the blade.
