Knife sharpening, scissors sharpening, big or small, is an art that one learns with time. Mr Alexandru has been a whetter for many years now, working in the only workshop for sharpening still open on Kogalniceanu Bvd. For kids these days to guess what a whetter does requires a lot of imagination. Because of the noise the polishing stones make when they constantly rotate. Whetting is a although loud, solitary kraft.

The whetting workshop of Mr Alexandru seems like coming from the past, from the period between the world wars. Even for many passer-bys seems a deserted place. But is far from reality. Mr Alexandru can strongly accomodate orders in this tiny space, that cannot fit more than two people at once, most of the space being used by all the tools that you need in this craft of whetting.

The whetting workshop “La Ştefan” is not a common whetting workshop. Not because the whetter is very good at sharpening all sorts of things which may seem impossible to sharpen, but because the moment we set a step inside the workshop, we are surrounded by paintings. Mr. Stefan is not an art collector but a painter and all the paintings in the workshop are his creation. A man of many talents. So next time we need to sharpen something, but we also want to feel like in an art space we can pay a visit to Mr. Ştefan.
