As we continue with the pandemic and folks are cooking at home more, it’s important that the tools you use are well kept. We believe that the depth of your enthusiasm for cooking should match the quality and care of your cutlery. One request we hear so often is for knife sharpening classes. We are so excited to currently offer these knife sharpening classes. Class size is limited to 6 participants, social distancing observed, and of course masks are required. A small class not only follows Covid guidelines but allows for more personal engagement and better instruction. This clinic is fun, engaging and educational. Be prepared to get your hands dirty with putting the knife you bring directly on ceramic stones we provide. Students learn about form, function, safety, modern metallurgy, knife care, stone care, how to establish and refine edges and check for sharpness.
Chef Elan Wenzel, owner of Element knife Company will be instructing the class. He has over 20 years experience working with Japanese cutlery and tools. Whether you’re a knife “geek” or simply have a dull knife, this class will help you determine if sharpening is an art you wish to pursue. This knife sharpening clinic shows how to establish bevels, refine the cutting edge to razor sharp, and maintain sharpness. We look forward to working with you and sharing our ethos of support and education. Currently, classes are held inside our shop, located inside Stanley Marketpalce at 2501 Dallas Street, Aurora Colorado 80010. A 24 hour notice of cancellation is required for a full refund. Classes are held Tuesdays, Thursdays & Sundays at 7:30pm and are approx. 1 1/2 hours long. Please go to elementknife.com for class details, choose your day, and sign up.
