Richmond Addict Upgrades
Seems like these knives are going to be winners for the price point but a little thicker than what most here want from their knives. Consider sending these knives to us to get them tweaked and performing up to par. The extra cost added in will still get you a low cost knife but with the extra blade work being done they should perform much better and elevate the knives into a higher performance bracket.
Essentially what I'm offering is to pick up where the robots leave off, tweak to the max performance in blade thickness, profile grind, blade face resurfacing, and sharpened by myself to our standard.
We'd love to have the work.
I like how you think Dave.
Makes good sense. I did this for a friend's Chicago Cutlery. It was his main knife and he got the set for Christmas, passed down from his parents. Cheap knife, was constructed like crap and didn't ever see a high level of finish or maintenance. Now he has a knife worth owning.
I'd say if anyone has one of these, Dave would make a fine finisher for it!
Looks like there's interest enough in this to give it a try. I've already got two maybes and one definite on the way....cool.
I will be sending you my Addict on Monday and I cannot wait to see what you do with it.

What's the price for an Addict tune up?
Hi Judd, I'm honestly not sure yet, depends on how easy (or not) the job goes. The first few that I do will be real cheap while I figure it out, I usually do things this way as a way of saying thanks for lending me your knife to play with.
