LADY LIBERTY!

THE FRENCH …

The French gave us … French Toast … French Fries … , and I’m guessing, “un baiser avec la langue” .

They also gave us the Statue of Liberty in 1886. Since that time Lady Liberty have been welcoming Travelers, Immigrants and Refugees from all over the World with her words … “Give me your tired, your poor/Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”!

Today people want to change us from French Toast and Fries into a Freedom Toast and Fries Nation of People … It won’t taste the same! They also want to take Lady Liberty’s “message” and rip it from the her to “change who we are” as a Nation!

Lady Liberty won’t stand for that … she’s a Harbor Chick!

ALL WELCOME

You know … more and more newer knives don’t have the quality that older, vintage knives have.  If you’re out doing garage sales or thrift shops and see a fine older knife with good steel and lines … you might have a keeper!

Or if you don’t want the “hassle” of looking for a knife … come to our shop.  We have a selection of fine, vintage knives, carving sets and cast iron cookware to meet your needs!

Quality Vintage Knives for Sale

Village Sharpening has an inventory of great quality vintage and used knives for sale.  If cared for, a well made kitchen knife can last for a lifetime.  We see many knives come through our shop and we can appreciate a well made knife.  The used knives we sell have been manufactured to last by manufacturers who created top of the line products.  Some of these manufacturers are no longer in business.  Others continue to manufacture quality knives.  We feel privileged to offer these great knives for sale.

New quality kitchen knives can each sell for $100 and up.  We sell most of these knives in the range of $25 to $45 per knife (plus tax).  That includes sharpening!  Stop in  our shop or call Gene to see what is available.  The inventory changes regularly so stop in often to view the latest inventory.
