Anyone ever had to sharpen a knife for a fellow knife nut that thought he was good at sharpening stuff only to find that the edge you put on his knife is like 100x better than what he is accustomed too? Share your story, mines goes like this:
I was cooking at this kitchen and one of the chefs there saw I had a wa handle knife and so the knife chat started. He said he was ultra proud of having the sharpest edges in all the kitchens he has worked... Grabbed his knife and I was like nice... (right).
So one day he comes in and his knife has a chip, I told him I could fix it and so I did, what I didn't tell him is I ran the knife through all the usual Memo special progression, when he got the knife I told him I had done the Memo special, he gave me THE LOOK, until he touched the edge. I remember seeing his thumb pop like an overly juicy grape. The look on his face PRICELESS.
