Knife sharpening is an art, a craft, and a way to communicate. And from our work and time spent with Yohhei Sato, he really lives and breathes this stuff. He's a passionate craftsmen and he'll join us tonight for Curiosity Club to talk about the art of knife sharpening.
Sato grew up on his family's rice farm in the countryside of northern Japan and learned sharpening skills from his uncle who is a tuna butcher and his grandfather who also taught outdoor skills. Now, Sato rides his bike all around Portland teaching skills and involving the community in the craft.
