First delivery:

Turned the bent & chipped slicer into a Kiritsuke tip...

Image

Chamfered the spine for a righty, removed finger guard at heel, and reintroduced a point to the blade... :roll:

Lastly, the Deba's condition just pissed me off so I got off all the rust to the pits, sharpened her, and put a mirror on her to remind the user what a F-up he is...

That friend better be ready to burry a dead body when you need the help.

I wish I had friends like you. I swing by with fish and all my busted up knives. You smoke it for him and fix (not just sharpen his knives)

Great job.

Scumbag never even thanked me for the fish, but I like the way you think, El. :twisted:

Nice work my friend! I like the way the Wusti turned out. I might just have to give that blade shape a try or two. Got me to thinking. Scary!

Goodness. Why did he have some many uncared for knives? That box was like the island of misfit toys. I was afraid to look inside longer than 2 seconds.

WHO'S <> One of the ironies of the cutlery world is that 95% of Chefs/cooks don't care for their knives. I mean many keep them clean, but sharpening is relegated to honing on a steel... typically. This is just another example of another Chef's abusive treatment... it's actually two chefs' knives.. both Executive Chefs w/many many years experience. :|

The executive chefs I've worked for don't care much about their knives. One liked the all stainless Furi knives for sanitation sake. One has a full set of Miyabis he got for free and uses once a month. And one uses gangly house knives 95% of the time.

Our exec doesn't cook, but our sous chefs mostly use Victorinoxes or Russells with the random Wusthof or Shun thrown in (presents from the in-laws, I'm told). There are a few Tojiro DPs, Misonos and Macs in use but that's about as knife geek-y as we get.

Side note: Our chef de partie has "FU" written on all of his tools so no one else tries to nab them and no, those aren't his initials. :)
