    Danny, Have you busted out the Cape Cod cloths yet?
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    if you don't mind me asking in the open, Jon, what kind of cost would be involved for a Honyaki re-handle, and a utilitarian polish (bringing out the hamon, but not mirroring)?

    our rehandle pricing is on the website here:
    http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/knife-rehandling

    as far as the polishing goes, it depends on the knife and condition of the knife. Also, i always have to sharpen the knife too after work like that, so the base price for sharpening double bevel knives right now is $15. Polishing can add anywhere from $20 or more to that base price depending on the knife, condition, etc.

    You're not making much money on this, are you? I should take advantage, because re-finishing a honyaki is just a real pain in the ass, in my experience.

    i try to keep it fair for everyone... but i now have to limit my work in sharpening and repairs... for example, i only do japanese kitchen knives (and some american custom knives) now days... and no ken onion shuns. The vast majority of work i get for sharpening (other than the honbadzuke i do in store) are really high end knives... honyaki, custom work, etc. Very time consuming stuff and high expectations.

    Also, i'm pretty fast at this stuff now days :P
