Those of us who have lived in NYC for quite some time know the name Joseph Ades. And if you don’t know his name, you at least know his voice. He was the man that used to sit in Union Square and sell vegetable peelers like a boss. He passed away in 2009 and to me, the thought of ever picking up another stainless steel vegetable peeler vanished.

Until now. I just found the exact same vegetable peeler he sold for $6 on this website.
