Hi Mel, I know you weren't calling me a fool, never thought that for a second and I know exactly what you were saying.
I also know you were not comparing with pictures, but I had to comment on the pics again because I enjoyed them so much, and I know you were contrasting the time investment piece.
I enjoy these forums because it provides the opportunity for me to learn from people like you, you speaking your mind is just what I need, I would disappointed if you didn't and I never take it as anything but constructive criticism. It's funny but when I decided to start a sharpening business I always figured making the knives sharp would be the tricky part, heck, that's the easy stuff, it's pricing, getting the knives to me and back to the owner, Invoices, keeping track of customers....I need an assistant
At some point in time, when I am ready I will get back to you about my knife choice, I'll need some help with that.
