Running with Knives: How Not to Greet the Knife Grinder’s Truck

Tired of sawing through onions and watching your garlic hop around the counter? All it takes is $15 for the itinerant knife grinder, Mike Palotta, to sharpen three of your very dullest chef’s knives.

Except don’t wrap your knives in a flimsy dish towel (sorry, that’s the way my mom did it) and run down the steps, then gallop down the street, to catch up with Mike’s roving green knife grinding truck. Read more on West Side Rag about how Mike is still plying his trade after more than half a century.
