It looks like you got some blood on that blade or is that a tomato?

It's not tomato, thank goodness for those cape cod cloths you sell, I was trying to save the patina and was wiping the edge and i know better but the knife cut through the towel and rite into the crease of my hand. I have never been so proud of my work. Now for the next couple of days I will have to wear either gauze or a procotogist glove, ribbed of course. All I have is the ones that are blue and have a rough dot finish for grip. Yea me. Peace, jmbullman

I may have to send you some of mine. I have a heckuva time getting an even bevel on the tip with those bull nose butchers, even with an Arky.

Sometimes they still don't turn out even one side is usually thicker than the other quality q was not one of old hickorys strong point but if I can help please let me know. They are thick and don't get the sharpest in the world but I can make them shave paper an debone a chicken, peace jmbullman

For some reason I find these old carbon butchers knives frequently. I taught myself how to sharpen on stones with the four or five that I have. There not my favorite knives to use but they sure are fun to build back up from a pile of rust. Your knives look great, I put up a pic of one that has been in regular service for about 3 months now, just about time for a buff on the blade.

Looks good the only thing about those is the inconsentency they can be thin I'm one part and super thick I the other, makes u want to pull ur hair out. Down here in the south I bet they are still in the top ten insales they are just loved by so many down here and sometimes u get one to sharpen that is easy and than their is the one that makes u want to pull ur hair out. Peace jmbullman. Good job btw
