    No sir you don't!

    I plan on putting both through the paces and getting them sent to the next in line by next Monday. I know Jon offered his sharpening service to keep us stone amateurs honest. Do I ship to him for a tune-up or on to the next in line?

    I ask only because I noticed one of the two (don't ask me which, don't remember) seemed duller than the other. I'm hesitant to sharpen someone else's knife since I know I can get stuff decently sharp, but I make no promises on the condition of the cladding...

    And again, thanks to Labor of Love and Daveb for this opportunity!

    Captain, the white 2 gengetsu is mine and you may sharpen it if you feel confident in what you're doing. I just realized that I never addressed sharpening for the pass around, anyone can sharpen it if they feel the knife needs it. I will say it doesn't need much, usually I touch the gengetsu wh2 up once a week on a gesh 4k and the edge pops back to razor sharpness pretty quickly.

    Im ok with same.

    Note that carbon G has Kanji on right side as normal. Stainless knanji is on left in that generation of Gengetsu.
    Older and wider..

    I have two questions. Is it too late to get in on this? And, have I been around here long enough to qualify?
