Mid Knife Crisis

When we bought a pair of gardening shears at a yard sale, we knew that they would need sharpening. My nearly 40-year-old Henckels chef knife and Wiss scissors were also long overdue. Searching for a local business, I found Mid Knife Crisis (MKC) mobile sharpening service, owned and operated by Anthony Dompierre out of Brentwood Bay. His slogan is "Never a Dull Moment!"

MKC is a regular at several of the peninsula's weekly markets. We meet up with Anthony at Oakland Community Centre's Sunset Market at 2827 Belmont Ave, Victoria and are immediately impressed with his professionalism and meticulousness. He took apart the shears to clean and sharpen them and did equally thorough work on the knife and scissors. Total including tax $30.

While we're waiting for Anthony to work his magic, we pick up boysenberries, artisanal olive and rosemary focaccia and Talonridge Honey from various vendors.
