Rehab of beloved knives and schedule for rest of season.

A customer brought me an old paring knife with a beautiful patina on it.   IT was made by Hoffritz.  It had been in the family for some time and the handle had begun to rot off and fall apart.  They were made in Solingen Germany and imported from the 1930’s on.  The knife is very flexible and thin.  The handle was brown and faded and not much left on one side.  It may have been ebony at one point but it looked a lot like walnut so that is what I replaced it with.  I sharpened it and hopefully it will provide another 70 plus years of work.   We love old knives and love giving them a second life.  Jut one of the many things we do here at Cape Cod Cutlery.20451585_10211955359851830_7589495703428734559_o

This weekend not much to report but next week all over the place!

Aside from Cape Cod Beer tomorrow if it does not rain we will be taking the weekend off from shows.  Look for us Tue of next week at the Chatham Farmer’s Market, Thursday at the West Yarmouth Library Village Crafter’s Show, Friday and Cape Cod Beer Farmer’s Market, Sat at the Osterville Library Village Crafter’s Show and Sunday at the Brewster Historical Society Farmers Market.  Busy week!

This Weekend !!

Friday we will be at Cape Cod Beer Farmers Market from 3-6 on site knife sharpening will be available.   Saturday and Sunday we will be selling at the Castleberry Liberty Crafts Show in Chatham.  It should be awesome!! Sunday Tom will man the booth in Chatham and I will be taking the sharpening business over to Drummer Boy Park in Brewster from 9-1  to put a keen edge on all the dull blades brought to us at the Brewster Historical Society Farmers Market!!   So come on out and see us at these great local events.  Check out our latest damascus knives and pick up an oyster knife for yourself or oyster loving friends.

In these two pictures you will see some wood products. on the left an Oyster board hand carved by Dan of Dirty Dan’s Cranberries.   The next picture shows two knife blocks made by Dan out of local Red Oak that he cut down and split and sanded for us.  Dan is a great young man who raises herbs, chickens, cranberries and does local live edge wood craft.  He is really living off the land and taking the homesteading craft and lifestyle to heart.  We will no doubt be doing more work with him as his live wood and rustic look sits well with our own local rustic aesthetic.  Look for him at local farmer’s markets like Chatham where we met him and hang out every Tuesday.   Cool video on the Chatham Market

 

Knife Sharpening in Brewster

We worked the great new market at Brewster’s Drummer Boy Park.  It is on Sundays  from  9 -1 and is sponsored by the historical society.   There is such a demand for knife sharpening in Brewster that we have decided to split our efforts on a bunch of Sundays and I will  go sharpen in Brewster. The dates we are looking at are July 2, 16 and 30.  Aug 13, 27, Sept 3, 10, 17.  Look for us under the windmill.
