A GLOWING ENDORSEMENT OF VENIER FORGE
“We took two knives from the set we received 20-plus years ago at our wedding to the Medford Farmers Market last week for sharpening. After 15 minutes and for a reasonable fee, we had them back. Testing them on some fresh market veggies at home, we found they are like new and are so glad we brought them in.” —Heather, Medford Farmers Market customer
