Like he’s done every summer for the past 30 years, Tony Del Ciello was back sharpening knives Wednesday, July 10, in Wilmette. Known affectionately as the “Knife Guy,” he made his way throughout the village with his green blade-sharpening cart with bright red wheels to sharpen knives and scissors. He announces his presence by ringing a bell.
