Knife Sharpening & Maintenance Workshop!

So you got a nice new shiny, sharp chef knife for Christmas but now it’s not cutting like it did when it was new. Tomatoes that it used to glide through now turn into mush and cutting up a chicken is more like bludgeoning your way through it. Spend a couple of hours with us learning how a knife gets dull and how to use a knife to protect its cutting edge.  We’ll teach you how to maintain the sharp edge on your nice knives and how to use a honing steel and whet stones without wrecking the edge of your knife.  We’ll have knives for you to practice on along with honing steels and whet stones or feel free to bring your own.  Class size is limited.

About your instructor:

Rich Sheya has been studying sharpening and honing techniques for decades and is an edge geek: “if it’s supposed to be sharp I want it stupidly sharp.” When he remembers to shave, he uses a straight razor because they’re sharp and fun to use.  He’s been teaching the sharpening and knife maintenance portions of SLICE’s “Basic Knife Skills” classes and our “Professional Certificate in the Culinary Arts” program for the last 8 years.  As a hunter he learned that a razor sharp knife made field dressing a much less gory chore and butchering faster and easier with cleaner and more appealing cuts of meat.

A snack will be served during class.

Your health and safety are extremely important to us.

We are taking every precaution to ensure a safe and sanitary kitchen and classroom environment. We regularly clean and disinfect our facility throughout the day and class sizes are currently limited to practice proper distancing. All staff is required to wear a face mask. We are doing everything we can to keep our guests and SLICE team safe, and are asking for your help with these additional precautions:

  • Upon arrival, you will sign in and have your temperature taken at the front desk. Any guests with a temperature over 100 degrees will be asked to go home.
  • You will be required to wear a face mask and gloves during the prep and cooking segments of class. You will be allowed to remove your face mask once you are seated at a dining table.
  • Please wash your hands upon arrival and after touching your phone, your face, door handles, and other surfaces outside of the kitchen.
