About the instructor:

My name is Mike Otabé and I grew up with both Japanese and Canadian culture. As a child and teenager, I watched my dad sharpen knives at home on Japanese stones.

Later in life, I began learning knife hand sharpening in 2011, using books, videos and a lot of practice.

In 2014, I launched my business called " Aiguisage Le Fil Tranchant".

I keep working and learning in order to improve my skills, but also to help and educate people about the importance of using sharp knives.

I now work full-time as a knife sharpener for residential and commercial clients.

In 2019, I teamed up with Helios Makerspace where I now have my workshop and I can also help more people learn the art of knife sharpening by hand.
