    Random pictures of knife sharpening and refinishing we do

    I thought i would make a thread for pictures of the kind of sharpening, restoring, refinishing, and just general repair work we are doing here on a daily basis. I usually suck at remembering to take pictures, and almost always forget the "before" pics, but i'll be my best to post what i can when i can....

    can confirm that sending Jon a knife yields it coming back to you in better-than-new condition.

    Wow it looks like someone cut thru an electrical wire as I'm sure I see copper (or rust) in the before picture.

    i've been on a tear lately, trying to get caught up with work before i leave... here's another one i just did this afternoon.

    This was another rusted knife... it had been sitting by an open window at an apartment near the ocean for a bit and had surface rust on one side with minor pitting. We repolished the blade to an almost mirror finish and then hand polished to bring out the damascus pattern.

    I'll vouch for his work though....I had a kitaeji gyuto that had an unfortunate tip incident and after he got through with it, you couldn't tell it had ever had an "incident". Top quality work for a VERY reasonable price.
