I’m constantly asked by potential new clients, “So, how long have you been sharpening xyz?”
One of my 1st jobs as a teenager, in the late ’60’s, was working with my Father, in a neighborhood upscale grocery store.
At first, I was just an ordinary “bag boy” but soon I was helping out in the meat department, waiting on customers, slicing deli meats & cheeses and learning various butchering procedures. Along the way, I was taught how to sharpen the knives on an “Old Skool” oil tri-stone system…and I got pretty good.
A short time after high school, I chose to enlist in the U. S. Marine Corps, working with the Inspector General Branch as a traveling Auditor and beginning my college education. I was honorably discharged and finished my degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management.
The majority of my career was spent with Hilton & Holiday Inn and a few free standing restaurants, even owning several along the path…all the while honing my knife sharpening skills.
Seeking to improve my skills, I purchased an AMK knife sharpening system and began a new side business venture, sharpening for profit.
Soon, several of my hair stylist friends asked me to sharpen their shears. Not knowing much about that, I began my research & purchased an Ez-Vex Diamond wheel system, a truly unique device that sharpens & restores shears, using geomentry vs “guessing”.
I’ve since sold my last restaurant and began sharpening full-time many years ago and in the last few years, began to sharpen groomer clipper blades and retailing shears & blades as well.
Quite an enjoyable journey, one that I’m still traveling…
