It's easy to take kitchen knives for granted. Grab one, slice the vegetables, add them to the skillet, and soon the dish is ready. Preparing fresh vegetables means lots of peeling and slicing, so dull knives become an aggravation and a safety issue. Because a dull knife requires more pressure to make the cut, it leads to slips and injuries.
Monday, July 2, Carey Baird is bringing his set up to sharpen your knives on site at the Montevallo Farmers' Market. His trailer says "On Site Sharpening" and that tells the story! He has a long history of sharpening tools and knives, but the on-the-road set up is more recent for him. Bring your knives to market on Monday and meet Carey when you come to shop.
