    My current status re: e-mails and sharpening services

    I know a lot of you are waiting for either knives to be sharpened or e-mails to be replied to... this is where i stand

    So far today, I have repaired, sharpened, rehandled, and/or refinished over 30 knives... the vast majority (over 90%) were quite complicated repairs, including thinning and refinishing, repairing messed up shinogi lines, and so forth... still havent had a chance to get to e-mails yet... sorry guys... gonna try to do e-mails tomorrow

    Due to how much sharpening i was able to get done today, almost everyone waiting for sharpening will be hearing from me when i can make some time for e-mails... all sharpening jobs, except 3 knives are now done.

    I did 10 one night, nothing like what you said here. Hardest was some thinning. My hands felt really bad for 3 days.

    yeah... 10-15 per day is normal for me, but lately, its been like 20-30 per day...they started piling up... today was a holiday, so i closed the store, came in, and busted them out. Over the last week, i've had to prioritize easier tasks, as there wasnt enough time to take on the harder/more time consuming ones... of course, that meant that i got stuck with all of the hard ones today

    I have noticed that a new born takes up 110% of your time. Not to worry though, when a second one comes along they combine for only 110% of your time.

    Of course this is not a bad thing.
