You will be taught to sharpen and hone your knives to perfection by hand. The sharpening stone and honing oil is included in the price of this class. Bring your quality chef’s knife and paring knife plus any others you wish to learn to sharpen. Should you want Eric to bring your knives back to life, you may arrange that during class.
Eric’s sharpening experience spans 30 years. Born in England, raised in Germany, his love affair with all things sharp began in boyhood, grew with him through military service to the Queen, and comes to fruition at Bay Area Farmer’s Markets, restaurants, catering companies, retail and private homes. During this unique hands-on class Eric gladly shares his true wealth of historical, cultural, and scientific knowledge about the blade.

  1. Thanks! Biggles, we have folks signing up:)
    I went to check out the new Whole Foods store and met a woman with a site called She blogs a bit too, was promoting a contest through Scharfenburg chocolate and when I told her all about you and Meathenge she said you should put in a recipe for cooking meat with chocolate.
    Sauces, rubs? $5000. prize.
    I always talk about you!!

  2. When I get “real” knives, I will sign up for a course.
    And the other comment? Why am I thinking a mole inspired kind of dish?
