BLADE SHARPENING, with Asa Jordan from Knifing Around

Here to help you with the family feast, and to keep you safer, we are hosting a pop-up event here in the shop. A popular item in store has been camp knives and multi tools. To help keep them in great shape, and up to their intended task, bring them in for a hand sharpening. Asa Jordan will be on site to hand sharpen hand chisels, small pruning shears, serrated knives, pocket and kitchen knifes. 

Knifing Around is the first in home or drop off, same day knife sharping service in Maine. Knifing Around offers hand sharpening on diamond stones to the York and Cumberland county areas of Southern Maine.

Proprietor, Asa Jordan, first learned how to sharpen knifes in Culinary Arts school and refined his technique over his almost two decade cooking career, where he sharpened restaurants, colleagues and his personal knives. Asa now seeks to bring his knowledge and passion for excellence to you and your knifes.

SNOW SPORT GEAR SOCIAL, with the Ladies Adventure Club

Ladies Adventure Club Maine

Woods + Waters Gear Exchange is hosting an evening of socializing and information on winter gear for LAC members & friends. They will have expert users and product developers on hand to talk about the equipment we want to get outdoors in the snowy months such as snowshoes, cross country Skis, back country gear, microspikes, poles…. even sleds!

There will be a presentation to the group, then chance to talk individually and ask questions. Plus tasty food and drink! Inventory is available for purchase during the evening, but our primary interest is to help you prepare you for a fun snowy season outdoors, and a chance to be together!

No experience necessary.

Bring a female friend, let’s all learn what we need to play in the snow.

WILDERNESS FIRST AID:

Have you been looking for creative ways to help take care of your friends when they injure themselves during backcountry adventures? Been anxious to take a wilderness first aid class or just feel a bit rusty in your skills? Do you hate the idea of carrying a massive first aid kit but feel like you should?
Let’s brainstorm ways that you don’t have to and instead can use what’s in your pack, or on the Woods + Waters shelves, to treat your injury prone friends.

Join local LifeFlight of Maine nurse/paramedic and longtime SOLO instructor Brad Boehringer on May 29th from 5 pm to 7:30 pm to dust off those skills or rethink how you pack your pack. Bring your first aid kits and lets review what’s in there and why!
