    NOOOOO!!! He needs to send the carter back home so I can copy it to make a knife.

    Actually, Carter is in the mail, Mario should receive it today. Just tracked, it is out for delivery as I type this.

    No plans for copying Carter. His grind - shallow convex combined with a thin geometry is not that different from mine (mine is a little thicker), but I like profile I am using better.

    I do have to give Mario (RRLover) a huge thumb-up on sharpening. His are some of the most uniform (and thinnest) bevels I have seen and his Carter was the sharpest knife I have even handled. Need to fly to IL to take one-on-one class with the man. Very, very impressive.

    I'd love to be in a passaround as well. Really like the Masamoto-like profile I've seen on some of your early knives!

    Instead of you coming to IL I can ride out to NY for a week when it cools off and play at your shop for a bit.

    You have to be vigilant in filtering out the chaff.
    This may be true if this were some of the other forums that are heavily populated with dilettantes and such. But it comes off as a bit elitist. Does a user that prefers not to push cut rank lower in the pecking order? What about someone who owns lots of high end knives but rarely/never puts blade to board? We're all here because we already know what to look for in a knife, or are serious enough to take that step into this rarefied world.
    I'm pretty sure that the guy who walks into SLT and proceeds to bash a Zwillig Kramer against the counter to test its edge retention isn't going to pop up here.

    Just read the cheese knife post. I stand corrected.

    sorry, may have been a bit convoluted. Just a poke at some irony

    I'd do it, to prove a point. I do it at work all the time.
