Would you guys recommend I send my knife to Josh McEachen after I order it. Is it worth the extra 20

Some knives come pretty sharp, some less so. I think it would be good to send it to Josh from the point of view of having a great reference point. After that, I am thinking getting some water stones and learning to freehand would be the way to go.

If you're curious enough about it to frequent a forum like this you should consider getting a set of stones and learning the skill. I couldn't imagine paying another man to sharpen my steel, it's a very personal thing. Then again, I wouldn't pay another man to shave my face or polish my shoes either. To each their own, I'm sure Josh would do a fine job for you. If everyone had the same opinion life would be dull, so there's mine.

Depending upon where you live you may be better off putting that money towards a sharpening lesson from a forumite or a vendor. No matter how sharp Josh gets an edge, it will eventually dull. And sharpening your own knives brings its own rewards. A little bit theraputic, if you ask me, with a big dose of self-reliance and a touch of Zen.

I would rather put that money toward a stone.
