Stone Works Knife Sharpening
Equipped with machines he made himself, you’ll find Martin Grosweiner hard at work every Saturday morning, sharpening knives with minimal heat and friction to protect the integrity of your most loved knives and scissors!
A retired photographer, his retirement project, Stone Works, came from his passion for food, specifically Asian cuisine which he first learned to cook at a class with Betty Lee, a previous Market vendor. As his passion grew, he began using handcrafted Japanese knives, taking an interest in hand-sharpening to make sure his utensils were always at the perfect angle and as sharp as can be!
Martin’s customers include local chefs, crafters, hairdressers and everyone in between! From scissors and hunting knives to your favourite kitchen knife that’s starting to feel a little dull, Martin will make it sharp like new, while you get your shopping done at the Market! Don’t have a knife yet? He sells those too, handcrafted in Japan with 69 layers of steel!
