"More than 10 years of experience have honed Dave Nells’ sharpening skills. He took up the craft at the suggestion of a family member who thought he could maintain her shears better than other people she had tried, and that he could even make a career of it. Dave has done so and now just about anything with a blade can be improved by his talent. He and his wife, Amanda, are fixtures at many Chicago area farmers markets. Home cooks and personal chefs bring their knives to him regularly. In addition, Dave and Amanda sharpen equipment for stylists, pet groomers, landscapers and Amanda is especially “a pro at gardening tools.”"
