I use the bottom one as my goto. Just has a "feel" about it I love. Can't put it down
After seeing that pic of the American Grinding before I revived it, thought I'd show what it looks like now. It is currently my workhorse and sees any kind of cutting you can think of, and keeps begging for more
Tom, you remember what this one look liked like a few hours ago, lol. I did fill the crack in the handle with some epoxy too, we'll see if it holds. If not, I'm sure my dad has some really old hickory laying around I can replicate the handle with. It's razor sharp now, and I got about 90% of the grinder marks out of the blade. It's amazing what a bored person with sandpaper and a imperial IPA can do in an evening, lol
OK, Jmadams thanks for reviving this not so old thread...figured I'd try to contribute some ODC myself.
The small knife is my 10" Sab. Scored these beauties from Son.
Think I felt it move a little, lol. Wow, that dexter is a beauty
I hope you love my model 102 as much as I do.
it's funny but, half the odc in this thread were mine once upon a time.lol
Used the Dexter tonight, it was amazing--never could imagine a 14" blade feeling so good, especially for only using it once. I am totally in love with the Henckels and I will break it in tomorrow. Both blades are in awesome condition and I couldn't be happier!
