Slowhander II: The Sharpening

Attention barbers, hair salons, and Highlander LARPers: Keep your blades sharp without having to go out into the world. Make an appointment with Slowhand Sharpening and have the service come to you.

The man behind the wheel is Cory Pacheco, well known to fans of the Hope Street Farmers Market. He started the mobile Slowhand business five years ago while also working with Kevin of Poor Boy Sharpening at the markets. Now Kevin is retiring (enjoy!) and Cory will be consolidating the two businesses under the Slowhand name (and great branding by the way).

From professional hair dressers to weekend wood working hobbyist and everything in-between. If it has an edge on it we can bring new life into all the tools of your trade.

I stopped by Hope Street last Saturday with my kitchen knives and watched for a while as Cory worked on everything from garden pruners to a hatchet. Seen below is Cory’s charming assistant Lily, waiting on customers.

The mask compliance at the Hope Street Farmers Market was 100% as far as I could see. People were being directed into lines when necessary and I felt quite comfortable. The entrance is at the northern end. The Hope Street Market runs through October. After that, there will be a move into the new Farm Fresh winter facility. More on that shortly.
