A local blade sharpener is getting some rejuvenation at the Fort Saskatchewan Farmers' Market.
 
Rod Pittman, owner and operator of Razors Edge Mobile Sharpening Services, is seeing his business boom after a second year at the Fort Market.
 
"It's been great for getting my name out there, I've got so many jobs because I hand out cards and pamphlets here," said Pittman.
 
The man with many skills can sharpen almost any kind of blade, from culinary utensils and scissors to reel mowers and Japanese swords.
 
"I once had a gentleman bring me a real Katana that he got when he was in Japan."
 
Pittman got into the business 35 years ago when his father passed away and has been doing it ever since.
 
Razors Edge Mobile Sharpening Services was even busy in the rain during the last farmers' market of the year (September 21).
 
"I really enjoy seeing the product that I do, I feel I've accomplished something when I do a good job on a blade."
