    [Wife and daughter are taking off for holidays, next week wednesday]

    To celebrate that, I could help any wanting member with knifes maintenance.
    For me, it would be a chance to work on steel Ive never seen before, you get a free thinning/etching/ possible polishing - if me bothers.
    Mostly interested of course in things handmade, single bevels?

    The only thing you cover is postage.

    Would take you up on this but afraid I don't have anything too interesting...just a knife or two that should cut better than they do, and I haven't worked out a solution for them.

    I've never seen anyone work so dilligently, yet so comfortable, on the stones while thinning/sharpening, Mike;)
    Whoever takes you up on it will get a well pampered knife back, that's for darn sure.

    All I have to send you is a Global Nakiri that I think is too thick. I'd love for you to alter it however you like, but I don't have anything nicer/more interesting to offer you (yet), Mike.

    Endless conversations about Global between me and Maxim, hehe he hates them. All Iam saying is they are OK/decent as long as sharpened. And the nakiri, if thats the one with flat edge, tall and with thick handle, I actually like
    Chipped/blunt blade, does not matter how good a producer, gets you nowhere.

    If you think its too thick, then I think to the grinder it goes. I could to that, but just to be fair I have to mention, global is that little something I would not bother polishing.

    Chanop, I might not be the most polite and politically correct member on the board but I sure want to give to the community too.

    It's this knife. It isn't chipped or terribly dull. It just feels like a wedge compared to my Global 8" Chef and Global Santoku (my only other two Global knives). In fact, it feels similar to my 8" Messermeister.

    I'll send you a PM to keep from cluttering this thread.

    Bieniek, I can't remember, are you in Norway or Denmark?

    Its Maxim who occupies Denmark ;)
    Now, you must have something good to be asking ? :D

    Lets just say I am new to single bevel knives and I am fairly certain I messed up my Doi yanagiba in an attempt to sharpen/ mirror polish it. Would love for someone who knows what they are doing to take a look at it.

    OK, then what are you waiting for? Sending you a PM.

    Andrew, never got any msg from you

    Sorry about that. I got distracted with work and seasoning some new pans. It's probably not worth sending a Global to Norway. I'll probably just end up selling it as is and buy a Masakage Yuki Nakiri. Thanks for the offer to help, though!
