I have an Artifex 240 AEB-L that I had Ken123 thin. In a video he demonstrated how he could thin a blade yet leave
the logo. Very cool because I thought it wouldn't be respectful to Mark to remove it. Also I think it looks cool.
I then sent it to Adam Marr for a handle. Needless to say it was beautiful work. A medium brown maple burl.
Last Thanksgiving I lent it to the in laws ,whom we have Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with every year. for a month while
I sharpened their knives. I left specific instructions NOT TO PUT IT IN THE DISHWASHER
Not a full month after Christmas......guess what happened to the beautiful, gorgeous hand fittingly prefect handle???? Go ahead make a guess.
Not a little crack either.
Because of the relationship, I can't really say anything or kill either one of them but I won't be lending them anything decent EVER again.
I loved that handle
