Repair & Restore – Kitchen Knives

March 11, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am CST

Join us for our first Repair & Restore event!  Thanks to support from DuPage Foundation, we are are hosting a series of events to help extend the life of your valuable household items.  First up is kitchen knives.


Why should you have your kitchen knives professionally sharpened?

  • A blunt or dull knife is dangerous — it requires more pressure and is more likely to slip
  • A well-sharpened knife will enhance your cooking experience
  • Properly sharpening will prolong your knife’s life and improve its silhouette
  • A professional can assess the bevel, or angle, of your edge and recreate it precisely

At this event, an expert will:

  • Discuss how to determine if your knife needs sharpening and/or repairing
  • Provide demonstrations — using a magnifying glass, cutting fruits and vegetables
  • Share information about other blades (i.e. mowers, shovels, pruners, scissors)
  • Answer questions
You will:
  • Receive sharpening for up to 2 of your kitchen knives
  • Get a behind the scenes tour of SCARCE

Program is for individuals 18+ years of age.  Fee is $10 per person.
