Free Knife Sharpening-Need feedback on edges

    I have a couple restaurant accounts that I'm doing their house knives for (even some steak knives.... ... ...) for some local high end restaurants. I wouldn't mind picking up some mail order sharpening.

    I'm offering 10 free knife sharpenings to the first people to PM me to ten knives. Limit three knives per person please.

    It is freehand sharpening on Shapton stones. I only ask for you to cover the cost of shipping it back to you through Paypal and give me feedback on the how the edge performs when you get it back. I put a very servicable edge on my line knives but my opinion doesn't matter to other clients if they are unhappy with the product.

    German knives I take to 1-4k and strop. J-knives I take to 8k and strop or a JNAT finisher and strop.

    I do single and double bevels.

    Please no large chips, tip repair or serrated knives at this time.

    Trying to make my services top-notch. I've got two knives inbound, still room for more.

    I've got a decent turn around time at the moment. I'm only at the restaurant for 50 hours a week until around Mother's Day then I'll settle in around 40 hours a week through the summer. Lots of time for projects.

    Very generous offer. Sadly, I don't have anything but crappy knives. If I ever get something with a good steel, and the offer is still available, I would love to try one of your edges.

    They don't need to be high quality steel. If it needs sharpened, it needs sharpened. :) There are some hidden gems out there that someone thought or thinks is a crappy knife when all it could need is a different angled bevel or thinned out a bit.

    I would ask how can one lose a knife but it isn't as hard as one thinks!

    Do you need me to send you a knife to use until your's shows up? I think I have one or two extras somewhere.

    The problem isnt losing a knife, its unexpectedly finding one that can cause a problem

    Off the cuff i was going to say no as Id hate to put you out, but it would help expand my knowledge base and some experience, if your game I wouldnt mind trying something new,.. which at this point is any knife really

    Ha ok I have a shun that needs a second bevel. It's a classic 8 inch but sorta re-profiled. Feel like a challenge ?
