Photo by myself around 10th Street and 8th Avenue, in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
In the spirit of old-timey goodness, a knife sharpening truck still tours the streets Brooklyn. People can bring out their knives and scissors to be sharpened on the spot.
The service has gotten mixed reviews online, but I like the spirit of it, just the same. There is more than one knife sharpening company here, believe it or not, so the tradition is not quite at the brink of extinction.
