Hello, I am new to this forum and need some help. First a little background, this year is my 2nd season as a knife sharpener at local farmers markets in my area of northern NJ. I use The Wicked Edge Sharpening Sys and all my customers are very happy with the results. The first year I resisted doing serrated knives, but this year I am getting more requests since my reputation for sharp knives is spreading. Now for the big question, can anyone recommend a good system to use. I have very high standards for the knives I sharpen for my customers and I never give an OK knife back to a customer. All knives are delivered back to the customer after a paddle progression up to 1000 grit. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me. Bill (Precision Knife Sharpening)

Hey Guys,
Thought I'd take a minute to introduce myself. I reside in Fort Payne, Al, I'm a cattle farmer(Black Angus, British Whites). I purchased an edge pro 9 months ago and WOW. Look forward to some informative chats.
Enjoy Yourselves

Hey Mark just wanted to say I love browsing Your site! I've bought a couple Tojiro knives from You and I love them! You have so much to offer! I'd love to buy so many More! I've just recently got my foot in the door of a high end restaurant and unfortunately I'm having to start at the bottom (pantry) but working my way up! So hopefully a few raises and pay checks later I'll be able to buy a few more from You! Thanks for doing what You do making these knives available to us and educating us on these beautiful knives You sell!

Hello all! Please allow me to introduce myself to this august forum.

Back when I was at the age that most young men were discovering the earliest joys of beer, tobacco, and girls, I could often be found hunched over a benchstone freehanding one of my knives. Fixed blades and folders, usually hunting and fishing related. When I moved to college I put away the sharpening bench and began to pay better attention to my studies... as well as the above pursuits. My washitas and arkansas lay dormant in a basement.

Fast forward 30 years. I sent my set of kitchen knives out to be 'professionally resharpened'. You guessed it, they came back in horrible shape. I could swear one of them was sharpened on a can opener. Well, they worked - somewhat - as long as I steeled them every few cuts to keep the ginsu-like edge. Dark times.

Frustrated, and not wanting to just pitch what I consider decent knives, my inner sharpening giant awoke from slumber. I lurked around this and other forums for a few months and picked up a wealth of knowledge. (Thanks MadRookie, Ken, and many others!) I ended up with the Edge Pro Apex, the full range of EP stones and tapes, the 2 sided DMT XC and C plate, and the full kit of swag. I can't recall but suspect it was MadRookie who popularized the angle cube and I must say that is a key part of my kit.

Even equipped with such good gear I have suffered the learning curve. I have prevailed due to the terrific advice poached from the various forums such as this. There is still much to learn though, and I will thus direct my knife and sharpening questions to the appropriate subforum.

I can't go too far down the rabbit hole. Just ordered the Atoma 140. Maybe a few key Shaptons. Maybe one or two good J knives. As it turns out, over the years my inner sharpening giant was roommates with my inner flashlight collector. Having come out of dormancy, the two have lately been duking it out in my wallet.

Cheers,

Rick

LOL, good story, and welcome!

I see you collect flashlights, I have a couple of cool high-powered LED mini-flashlights. A "Fenix P1-D" and I can't remember the other right now. Anyhow, make yourself at home!! :D
