    Thumbs up HELL KNIFE

    I have a Artisan gyuto that I bought used a couple of years ago. It was bought to be a line knife and treated like my beast of burden. I practised sharpening on it, other guys borrowed it and did the same. I can't tell you how bad it had been abused.

    On a whim, I sent the knife to Dave.

    What came back was a totally different knife. When I got it I called Dave to see if he had made a mistake...like a smart man who probably gotten this call before, didn't answer! It had been thinned and reprofiled. Sharpened and the cladding cleaned up.

    With the board and and everything else Dave doing these days, I forgot how awesome Dave is at sharpening and fixing knives. This thing is amazing!


    Thanks again Dave!

    That artisan has been through a lot. Dave did something similar for me once. It is almost like getting a new knife.

    Yeah, Dave knows his sh!t. What he did to my Watanabe still amazes me. And what he did to that kiteaji yanagi I sold makes me sick that I sold it.

    Hey Judd, did you notice the handle smooth over job? I couldn't take the tang grinding my palm so I went and smoothed it out and then went back to work on the blade.

    This was the knife you sold me! If you saw it now...it really is a thing of beauty!
