Making Movies

I finally made myself put this on my errand list, Have scissors sharpen. They had gotten so dull, they would not cut air. So I knew of a great old company call Henry Westpfal Co., Inc. Est 1874 (above picture from Chung
I had not been there for years but I remembered they were on 30th Street in Manhattan. Searching the Internet I found the address (on another blog).
As I walked down 30th street, it was clear that Westpfal with the big scissor hanging outside was not there. Seems like every block in New York is under construction with buildings being torn down and new ones coming up. West 30th between 6th and 7th Ave was no different. THANK GOD I jotted down the phone number and that was still the same. Now located on 25th Street I will have my scissors in a couple of days.

Any kind of blade they will sharpen, so I am gathering up some old knives that are in need of some grinding. They are old school so I did not find a website. If you have dull knives, then you need this info. Ask about the mail order service:
