    I do it with love though.

    I've made knives for 33 years. I think that is longer than any other kitchen knife maker.

    There has been tons of mis information out there and lots of people have been making things up as they go and calling it the gospel of knife making. I'm just trying to save some of you the heart ache I've been through.

    Love and respect

    Thanks, Hoss! I followed your directions to the letter and am now ready to start grinding. The blade came out nice and straight. I would like to know how long to leave the blank in the cryo bath, though. In an effort to make sure that it was cold as it was going to get I left it in for a bit over 10 minutes. It was very cold when I fished out!
    Thanks again for your advice!

    30 minutes is standard.
