    Reground, Reprofiled Richmond Ultimatum in M390

    I reground and reprofiled this knife for a fellow forum member who couldn't bear to use it in the form he received it. When I got it, it was warped, overground toward the tip, underground toward the heel, thick behind the edge, with a handle that was too small for the blade and generally a POS to use. Hopefully, it's a little better now that it's been on a diet, lost a few mm at the tip and the heel and reground to compensate somewhat for warpage. It's still not perfect and I overground the heel a touch. Regardless, he's requested feedback on the blade, in general so I'm taking requests to be included in a short passaround. It's about 235 mm on the edge and 45 mm tall at the heel and heavily right-hand biased. If you're a regular (6 mo 200 posts and I recognize your handle) and you're interested, reply to this post.

    I'm in for a 390. Curious why he didn't send it back.

    He thought he might try fixing it and things weren't working to his liking. Are you a homecook or a pro? That makes two for the passaround so far. I'll take a few more.

    Former pro, now home. Cheflarge has taken excellent care of several of my knives. He's a pro for sure. You want me to leave the knife as is and just use it, no problem. Have done 390 as well

    I don't believe I have before pics but I'll check. At the time I took this up, I thought it would be a private interaction. That makes four.
