Slice of Life


Mike's Knife Shapener was out on Willow Street Saturday, open for business and ringing his bell.

    Always a welcome sight in the ‘hood — and even nicer to hear the sound of Mike ringing the bell like the old days!

    I don’t live close enough to street level to hear him coming, but I have seen him once in a while when walking around. Does anyone know if he keeps any sort of scheduled route?

    Ah summer is here.

    His scheduled route seems to be the entire city, as I heard and saw him clanging away yesterday afternoon on 81st St and West End Avenue! It was nice to hear a familar sound so far from the Heights.

    Guess I’ll just start walking the streets with my kitchen knives and hope to run into him. Bring on the lurking creeps!

    I’ve heard horror stories from neighbors (and on chowhound) about knives ruined by these guys. I take mine to Cooks Companion on Atlantic instead.

    Have you guys ever had work done by the truck?
