Img 1788My name is Maria and I make things sharp.

I didn't grow up wanting to be a sharpener. The skill wasn't passed down to me through multiple generations. It is a trade that captivated me one day while visiting a farmer's market in Chicago. The sounds, the sparks, the steel.... I came back to St. Louis knowing it was for me. I returned to Chicago for some intense training and spent the rest of the winter practicing on every knife, scissors and tool friends and family could spare. 

I love the challenge of sharpening new objects. I remember my first reel mower, food processor blade and sword. The most interesting thing I've sharpened was a Klingon Bat'leth!

See when I'm sharpening!
