Blue handled artifex finished sharpened by request

First I would like to say the craftsmanship of this handle is beyond anything I could imagine if I didn't know better i would say it was cut and measured with most expensive laser machines because its so perfect. I hope my edge will do it proud.

Great edge! What grit did you finish that at?

For people I don't know and don't know what they like or dislike or how well their knife skills are, I finished with an 8k and stropped with horse butt. When I send knifes to people I don't know I play it safe and make it more like a sharp line knife that will be able to take on anything it comes across. If you noticed I got it set up to push and pull cut equally well even though I prefer the French push cut method but either will work. I had a family member who owned a tojiro which I gave him for Xmas and I sharpened it up to a real fine fine mesh and did the chromium strop plus finished in a fine piece of kangaroo hide and the knife fell believe it or not landed flat across his foot and ended up in the hospital to repair his ligaments not to mention sew him up, I decided after a couple of similar problems with other people. Just remember you are sharpening their knifes usually because they can't and you don't want to see someone get hurt. Save the uber custom stuff for your own kitchen that's when it's fun when people come over for dinner and you drop a tomato on to a knife and it slides rite threw it, I love that look and the ladies like it for some reason also. Peace and prosperity, jmbullman

Lets just say that I don't have the skill to do that for myself yet but hope to soon. It's good advice for down the road. Thanks for sharing.

You are a gracious Master Jedi and I may take you up on your offer of knowledge at such time that I become befuddled. Thank you kind sir.
