:: Knife Sharpener

knifesharpener

This week I met this man working near home. His motorcycle tows a cart where he carries his equipment to sharpen knives, scissors, pliers and probably uses the engine electricity. Traditionally, sharpeners had a gadget made with bicycle wheels and their craft was announced when they put it to work and it shrieked as it rolled sharpening the blades.

Esta semana encontrei um homem trabalhando perto de casa. Sua moto rebocava um carrinho onde carrega seu equipamento para afiar facas, tesouras, alicates e provavelmente usa a eletricidade do motor. Tradicionalmente, os amoladores tinham um dispositivo feito de rodas de bicicleta e seu ofício era anunciado quando eles o colocavam para trabalhar e ele guinchava enquanto rodava e afiava as lâminas.

  1. I know of someone who drives a truck around neighbourhoods, with ringing bells like you’d hear from an ice cream truck, only it’s for sharpening knives.
