The Shining, Knife Sharpener used on set in Kitchen

original set dressing / pieces

These are the words of the previous owner I purchased the Knife Sharpener from on Ebay.......

This Knife Sharpener was used on the set for the kitchen scenes in the 1980 horror film The Shining. I originally purchased it from Paul Winter in has Garage Sale that was held in the Movie Props group on Facebook. After owning the piece, i was contacted by my good friend Jan Bartels and was told he was the original purchaser of most of the knives from the film. Iv included a picture of the information he sent me so i can show the history of this item. Elstree Studios were the supply  prop company for the movie and Jan was kind enough to also dig up a email from them contacting him about this sharpener that was on set. Originally this prop did come with a COA from Elstree studios, but somewhere in the chain of ownership after Jan sold it, the certificate was lost. I tried to contact Elstree to see if i can get the coa replaced, but unfortunately i had no luck.
