    Anybody brave or adventurous enough to want to help me restore these knives. I can't pay, but I might be able to do some trading in exchange for some work. I would like to keep the three large handles on the knives if possible, because chef put them there, but they could be refinished or shaped if necessary. I have some period replacements if need be. In case something goes wrong. the blades will need to be re-tipped, gaps filled, sharpened, straightened, so on and so forth.choils rounded and ground flush to the blade for half the heel width.( for future sayas) I would do this myself, but with working 7 days a week it just can't happen. Jim was generous enough to extend the use of his shop, but I just can't make the time. Thanks, Jim for your generosity.
    If someone or multiple someones are interested Pm me. Need to get them done possibly this year, would like to get a chance to use them. Running out of time, so many projects, not enough days in a lifetime.
    Thanks, Son

    If I only had the talent to do the work, I would be more than willing, but these knives need someone who knows their @%*#!

    I don't have access to a shop, so I am limited to hand finishing work (smoothing, polishing, a little thinning, and sharpening). If you have someone else willing to do the coarse grinding, id be happy to do the finish work.
