I Found Them Again

I am referring to my Sharpeners on Bicycles post in which I showed a unique age-old process of sharpening knives using the "machinery" fitted on a bicycle. Exactly 23 hours back from this post time, I found him again, the same unique-man! This time, he had his cute little baby boy with him. He has named him Vicky. See the cute ponies in his photograph below. This time, I photographed the full bicycle to show the mechanism.

Full photograph of the bicycle. See how basic yet useful the design is; the rear wheel has an extra ring, which is used to power the rotating sharpener.

  1. You can identify that he's the same man by the tattoo on his right hand in both the posts.

  5. Bravesh Chhatbar, how interesting this unique man and the little girl, Vicky. We used to have a man in a rickity old truck come around and sharpen our knives manually ( not using a bicycle, though) He doesn't come anymore unfortunately. There is no place to sharpen knives anymore... I'm glad I found your blog and thanks for commenting at my blog.

  10. That's very interesting and great to see something like that being done without using anything but human power and energy. I remember some sort of treadle powered honing stone in my grandparents basement, but don't think I ever saw it used. Thanks for visiting one of my blogs.
