Japan Earthquake Relief

We have been hearing the news of the devastating earthquakes and tsunami from Japan. We, at Knifewear, and our customers, have been thinking of Japan and the difficulties many face. Our hearts and prayers go out to a nation in distress.

Bring your dull kitchen knives to Knifewear from now until Saturday, March 19 and have them sharpened in exchange for your donation. All donations will go to the Canadian Red Cross Japan Earthquake/Asia Pacific Tsunami relief.

After our first half day of collections we have already collected over $200. We will do our best to raise as much money as we can for the relief efforts.

Please bring kitchen knives carefully wrapped in a tea towel or other protection to the Knifewear shop at 1316 9 Ave S.E., Inglewood, Calgary.

All knives are sharpened by hand using a series of water stones. Every effort will be made to sharpen knives while you wait, however due to increased volume it may require a longer wait than usual.

Our hearts are with you, Japan.
