Will do! I hope I remember next visit!And take a picture! I'd love to see it.
I suspect my Italian immigrant grandfather had his own set of knives that he kept sharp. He made all the old country cured meats, and I doubt he did that with dull knives. Unfortunately, we lived on opposite coasts, so I only saw him on major holidays every few years. He was a WWI veteran and has long since passed.
That’s unfortunate. Youth and distance sometimes get in the way of hearing/learning some amazing history. But, I think sometimes there is a generation gap and context more than anything. We have some amazing history in our family that never really got passed along because my grandparents, and even parents didn’t see the value of it.
