knife and tool sharpening


  • Indoor and outdoor markets

*Sharpening by Dave will return to the market in October, 2016

Almost 15 years of experience have honed Dave Nells’ sharpening skills. He took up the craft at the suggestion of a family member who thought he could maintain her shears better than other people she had tried, and that he could even make a career of it. Dave has done so and now just about anything with a blade can be improved by his talent. He and his wife, Amanda, are fixtures at many Chicagoland farmers markets, block parties and special events. Home cooks and personal chefs bring their knives to him regularlyor call for personal service for 10 pieces or more they will come to you. In addition, Dave and Amanda sharpen equipment for stylists, and pet groomers, florists, contractors, doctors and more.
