Dear NE Chowhounds,
I'm looking to give my Dad a gift card to an excellent knife shop for his birthday. I would rather not go with a big chain as I want him to have the opportunity to hold the knives, get advice from knowledgeable store staff and be able to return for sharpening, etc.
Does anyone know of a good shop like that? My Dad lives in Providence but anywhere within reasonable driving distance will do.
I'm not from the area so any advice is greatly appreciated!
