    Started sharpening knives

    Hello hello

    Sometimes I get recruited into doing things without my consent. I walked into work one day and my mother pulls me aside with Vincent to tell me that I'm going to learn how to sharpen knives. (Note the words "tell me" not "ask me.")

    So... I have started to sharpen knives.


    This is my little station now. (The green liquid is anti-rust chemicals.)

    My training sessions consists of Vincent crushing the edge and polishing it, then me sharpening it and trying to avoid scratching the surface. Sometimes he crushes the edge to a point where it takes me 30 minutes to even get a slight burr on it... Maybe this is revenge for something I did.


    Myself. "... no burr..."

    Thanks for reading!

    Congrats, Mari! It is a skill well worth knowing. As your responsibilities continue to grow at the shop you will be well-equipped to tackle whatever they throw your way. You'll be the supreme ruler at some point.

    Mari, Are you going to rock those traditional shoes that Vincent wears? I bet that's his secret. LOL
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    It's sad because it's true. She hold both trump cards.

    Thanks! I'm sure I'm going to have a million questions, so I'll be posting in the sharpening subform more... Which admittedly makes me happy, since that means I can be a part of the conversation.
