Master Bladesmith Comes to Phoenix to Teach Knife Tricks

Ten years working in restaurants and 15 years working on crafting knives has taught Bob Kramer a thing or two about how to properly use and maintain a knife. But he isn't greedy with his wisdom, and people in the Valley have a chance to reap the benefits.

The chef-turned-master bladesmith is touring Sur La Table stores to teach and talk about his pointy passion. On November 14 at noon, Kramer will be at the Kierland Commons location to bring his insights to the Valley.

Kramer will share his philosophy on knives as well as tips on sharpening and technique, with a meet and greet session at the end. The class also includes food, wine, a copy of Kramer's book Knives Cooks Love, and a 15% coupon for Sur La Table.

The cost of the class is $100 and space is limited. Register for Kramer's bladesmithing lecture online through Sur La Table. For more information, call the store at 480-998-0118.
