We're not really known for our pop ups. Although we do demos and on site sharpening classes, pop ups have never really been our thing. We've been approached to set up in many different places but the idea of lugging around stones and knives always scared me. Times change, I guess.
Back in my cooking days (100 years ago) I found myself in Mexico City opening a few restaurants and learning as much as I could about one of my favourite cuisines. There were incredibly hard times and incredibly amazing times spent there - but the relationships made and the energy of that insane city still stick with me til this day. What better place to showcase our stuff than one of my second homes.
So, pop up it is. (Plus it's great practice for the truck) - more on that later.
Come join us this July 22 / 4 - 7pm at Pizza Felix in La Roma. We'll have some cool new knives and stones as well as some custom pieces we had done up for the shop. We'll also be giving a sharpening demo at 5pm so swing by and hear my horrible Spanish. Hope to see you all there.

Love spots hidden from the street.

No pop up of ours is complete without a sharpening demo.
