"emergency" knife-shapener in berkeley/oakland?
I just realized the one thing on my Thanksgiving to-do list that I forgot is getting a knife sharpened to carve the damn bird.
I called the knife sharpener who comes to Star Market in Berkeley, but he's working in Santa Rosa tomorrow.
Ideas of a person/place to contact closer to Berkeley/Oakland to get a knife sharpened tomorrow?
I tried the first suggestion--the knife/shaving store across from the Walgreens in Temescal. They were great, underscored.
For those who've never ventured in, it's a funky, old-fashioned business, a hold-out in a sea of hipster commercial establishments.
The guy first said to leave the knives and come back in a couple hours, which seemed great--but he then checked w/ the fellow doing the sharpening and said he could do it while I waited.
The price: $5 a knife. (Not a typo....)
Thanksgiving Eve thanks to the Bay Area Chowhound Board, which has once again offered the best advice going!
