    Literally back from the dead !

    Can appreciate that the Chemicals and temp can ruin the finishing. But sucking out ,most of the oil in the wood is surprising and new to me.

    I will never have this problem as I do not own a dish washer and can't verify te above mentioned point.

    Fine workmanship.

    I was surprised myself in how dry the wood was. I knew that the surface would be dry but to see oil getting sucked into the wood like a waterstone was something I didn't expect to see, especially on ironwood which normally won't even hold onto oil on the surface all that well.

    I'm a litle late responding here. Better late than never.

    I received the knives back from Dave, wrapped and packed carefully. Actually they were wrapped so well it took me about 15 minutes to finally get to the knives. The handle rescue was even better in person than what was shown in the photos Dave supplied earlier. In fact the rescued handle may look better now than it did before. TERRIFIC job Dave!!!!! I am not a knife nut like most of you guys but I can appreciate good workmanship and this is a great representation.

    He rescued the handle then sharpened the knife to a scary sharp edge. He even found time to sharpen my nakiri to a scary sharp edge.

    Thanks again Dave. The results were superb!
