The Cook’s Edge was founded in 2015 by Adam Sweet, a cook by trade and self-proclaimed “knife enthusiast”. This knife shop is more than just a knife shop, it is a place to get inspired, a place to ask questions, and a place to learn.
Adam spent the majority of his cooking career in Calgary, AB. It was here he had the privilege of working beside some amazing chefs and lent a hand in opening some notable restaurants.
Right from the get-go, just like many other chefs, the knives and maintenance of knives intrigued him, and one day he was introduced to the magical world of Japanese steel by a man many people know as the “Knife Nerd”.
After moving back to the east coast, and having a hand in opening another restaurant, Adam decided he was going to live out his dream of being an entrepreneur, and help bring a better choice of knives to Atlantic Canada.
Thus, The Cook’s Edge was born.
“Japanese knives, sharpening, and the culture is amazing. Everyday I get to the shop there is something new to learn. Whether it is a sharpening technique, new stone, or a new knife, there is ALWAYS something there…..and that’s what I love!”
