A couple days ago I saw a half-blind man sharpening knives out of the back of a rusted Chevy truck on 9th Ave. It was a fabulous sight, the sort of thing that makes you stop and stare and stare again. He had a wet stone. He worked fast. It's such an improbable, interesting thing (like so much of this city) and I like to think about him driving around the city to the back doors of various restaurants, one tiny part of this big business.
