Mark,



I recently received some advice on your Facebook page regarding my first purchases from you and was told to go with the ‘Edge’ 5 piece set and perhaps a ‘Custom’ M390.



Just wanted to get your input…I am hoping to buy both within the next month and if possible at the same time, but alas the Mighty Dollar may be an ‘issue’…and I don’t want to sacrifice the experience for the sake of a few bucks, I’d rather do it right the first time.



I am used to using ‘traditional’ 8” Chef’s knives, but have the skill to use just about anything, although I do prefer a ‘shorter’ blade…other than that, I would defer to your experience as to which Richmond Knife would be a good choice.



As for sharpening…I’ve only had limited experience with ‘manual’ sharpening and that has been limited to three stones and just my hunting and pocket knives…I don’t trust myself to do the kitchen steel yet! I do believe that I’d like an Edge Pro set, but again with so many choices…am wondering if you could provide any guidance there either?



Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.



Best Regards,

Jim

My artifex is a good knife but for you I would encourage you to spend less and get the AEB-L version. They are easier to sharpen so I think that would be a better use of your money.

The Edge Pro is a good machine. Try the essential set. It's all you need:

All the sharpening I've done for Mark was done on an EP with Chosera and Shapton Pro stones. Worth buying imo!

You'll be able to get a great edge on the Artifex with an Edge Pro, if I can anyone can. ;) I have the Shapton Glass stones for mine and I love them, they are amazing. In fact I ordered 3 more GS plates today to "fill out" my set. I'm adding the 500, 4000, and 8000 to the 320, 1000, 2000, 6000, and 16000 I already had. I know it's way overkill but I'm in the throws of obsession at the moment and it sure is fun.
