    What was the price point of your single bevel, if you don't mind?

    Follow-up!

    I finally found time around my travel for work to spend a couple of hours taking care of my knives. I sharpened the watanabe SS kuro-uchi 186mm nakiri, Don The Nguyen 240 k-tipped gyuto, and 210mm masamoto VG.

    I can definitely see improved results as a consequence of my time with Dave. Yes, I put a better edge on all 3 knives but there was something more significant: I was able to see what I was going right/wrong (well, see MORE), and understand better when I was done with each step. Therefore, I spent much less time on each knife and abraded less steel to get a better result.

    Thanks again Dave! It's still paying off

    Dan, this is a lot like I felt when I went to visit Randy. He opened his doors, literally fed me for a day, and drank upwards of 10 coffees with me, into the wee hours. It was an amazing experience, and you sound like you had just as great of a time at Dave's. This is such a cool community!

    Dave, if I'm ever in the area, I'm crashing your place!
