So, what’s the story of your favorite slicer? We’re talking that strong and steady knife that’s been an extension of your hand through holiday hosting and quiet nights in the kitchen.

We want to know the nitty-gritty details of your knife’s history. Is it from your great-grandfather who fought in the Civil War? Is it the knife your mother used to slice fresh-baked bread for your after-school snack? Whatever its story, we’re interested. Edible Indy has partnered with Hoosier knife maker Ash Blaeds to bring you The Legacy of Your Knife contest.

Contest: We want to restore your knife and bring it to life with Ash Blaeds. Share the story of your knife with us via the link provided for a chance to win. We want to know who owned the knife, how long it has been in your family, where it came from and your stories and memories associated with that knife. Be creative as creative wins!

Prize: The most intriguing story will win a professional makeover from Ash Blaeds, to include: removing any rust and leaving the patina; thinning the edges and resharpening; sanding and sealing the handles or replacing the handles with new ones. Edible Indy will document the makeover with a story and photos in an upcoming issue.
