Columbus Cutlery (358 Columbus, 362-1342) has for decades been San Francisco chefs' favorite place to get their knives sharpened. The service is professional, turnaround is usually overnight, and prices are very reasonable: $4 up for blades up to 8", $5 for 10-12", and $6 beyond that. They also do scissors and pocket knives, can repair even badly damaged knives, and stock replacement toothpicks and tweezers for Swiss Army knives.

On top of that, the tiny shop offers one of the biggest selections of knives and scissors in the area. The following photos (click to enlarge) show only about half the items in stock.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
