METHOW SKILLS: Knife Sharpening Essentials with Master Bladesmith Bob Kramer
July 2, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$40
Bob Kramer’s story began in the kitchen…after ten years spent working in professional kitchens Bob still didn’t know the secret to keeping his knives sharp. What began as a simple question became an all consuming quest to learn all he could about blades and how to care for them culminating in Bob’s position as one of only 120 Master Bladesmiths in the United States.
Here is your chance to learn from a man who has devoted his life to the single-minded pursuit of crafting the perfect kitchen knife. In this 2 part lecture and hands-on workshop, Bob will teach you how to care for your kitchen knives. From how and where to store them all the way to using Japanese water stones.
Bob will share his story and his encyclopedic knowledge of knives during the first part of the class. Part autobiography, part history lesson, part demonstration and part practical tips, the lecture will culminate in a question and answer session. Those lucky enough to have signed up early will stay for the second half of the workshop to put what they learned to the test. You will have the opportunity to experience first hand just what it means to bring a knife from dead dull to razor sharpness all under the watchful eye of a true Master.
Bob’s class will be held in the Education Station (Building 9) on the TwispWorks campus.
Participation in the hands-on workshop is limited to 12. Pre-registration for both the lecture and hand-on workshop required.
