Master (bladesmith) class: knife skills with Bob Kramer

Back in November, we chatted about bladesmith Bob Kramer, who’d just been profiled in the New Yorker food issue, as well as in a Seattle Times photo galley by my pal Alan Berner — who took us into Bob’s shop in Olympia to see how the man of steel does what he does:

Well, I just got word that Bob’s going into the kitchen at Kirkland’s Sur la Table on March 21, offering a class in which participants (18 and older) can sharper their knife skills under the master’s tutelage. Like his hand-forged knives, the class doesn’t come cheap ($100, register here while spaces last), but you’ll no doubt have a chance to see — and handle — some of the Bob Kramer originals that connoisseurs and chefs clamor (and wait several years) for:

What do you want to bet there will be no wait to purchase one of his signature line of pricey-but-less-so Shun knives, sold at Sur la Table nationwide:
