A bit about Mill River Knifemaker
The Mill River Knifemaker has lived in Mill River for over 35 years, nearly a native by now. An artist, former restauranteur and writer, John Manikowski makes unique, one-of-a-kind knives from scratch, as it were.
Turning raw stainless steel bar stock into elegant - and/or purely functional implements (as in fillet knives) - a knife is an intrigal part of every contemporary human's tools. Used to cut boxes, yarn, fishing line and, of course, Sheffield Farmer's Market produce, a good knife is for life.

A Mill River Knifemaker's customer once said: "Owning a knife of John's is like owning a beautiful piece of art, but then you can use it, too!" Art need not just hang on walls.

Bring in your own knives for sharpening while browsing and shopping the Sheffield Farmer's Market every Friday afternoon, 3:30-6:30 p.m. Knives will be sharpened by the time you finish buying your freshly grown, local produce.

—John Manikowski, Artist/knifemaker
