Jonathan Broida used to be a chef, until he began sharpening knives. Now, the self-professed "knife geek" is spreading his expertise through his store, Japanese Knife Imports, in Venice, Calif. He's popular with local chefs who drop in for knives or to have their own knives repaired or sharpened. "I'm trying to create a community of knife geeks," said Broida.
