Seriously. Jon is the King of Teases.

It's not even close to as bad Jon makes it out to seem. It's pretty frickin' awesome.

I think Jon "1 Upped" every pro sharpener in the Western Hemisphere. Can't wait to see this setup.

another repair-
finally got a before and after... did this repair yesterday. I forgot to take a before pic again, but this time the owner happened to have one. Straightened the edge, fixed shinogi line, cleaned up blade, put on nice hamaguri edge, did uraoshi, and made it look pretty ;)

Looks great, Jon! I need to brush up on my Japanese knife terms. :)

Wow that shinogi line is all wavy. very nice work. Is uraoshi a dance you do right after you are done with all that? Oh wait that is the hokey-Pokey, my bad.:lol2:

Holy... at those prices every knife I received would get a spa treatment at Jon's to set the true edge, before I carry on scratching it up myself happily in the knowledge that come what may, I can have it refurbished for cheap.

Jon - plan to open a branch in South East Asia with your twin brother at the helm?

Sounds fun! Great work!

Does your new wheel do the ura hollow?

JBroida
06-25-2012, 12:12 AM
nope...thats a different kind of wheel (and cant be used for the same kind of sharpening this one is used for). Both wheels are used in the blade making process.

Jon-

So,... have you had a chance to take the new wheel for a spin yet?

Have a couple projects in mind on this end, when you are comfortable.... :spiteful:

It went for a spin the day you got it! Have you got it all set up yet? Or is Sarah pissed that you now have a brown wall? Haha

using it a whole bunch lately, but waiting on one last piece, so its less plastic wrap and trash bags in the back and more nice plastic work... pictures and videos to come when they part arrives (in the next week or two at the most).
