Bicycle Stone Grinder Knife Sharpener Sparks - Delhi, India - Daily Travel Photos
(Delhi, India)
f/14 || 1/13s || @20mm || ISO200 || Canon 5D || Canon 17-40mm f/4 Embed Code

A Delhi man uses his ingeniously rigged bicycle to sharpen knives from restaurant to restaurant.

As hard as I looked, I didn't notice a way to unhook this rig. In other words, I think that stone grinder is always in the 'on' position. Knife grinder may likely turn into a 'meat' grinder if he's not careful in traffic.

A man hones knives in front of a busy street-side restaurant.

I implied a bit of motion by dragging the shutter. My only regret is not knowing how to say "keep your head perfectly still" to the knife man.

They stretch and remove the belt between the ring attached to the cycle's rear wheel and the one attached to the grind stone. That puts it in the "off" position! : )
