    How much should I expect to spend to get into sharpening?

    I'd say if you're just starting out, get a King 1k and some kind of flattening method. Diamond plate, stone flattener, loose silicon carbide on glass or ceramic tile. Otherwise replace the King stone with a Shapton Glass 500 double thick.

    Recipe Requested I just harvested a massive amount of chives

    Use them with, or in place of, onions also. Old school fine dining garnish also :cool:

    What are typically used but respectable (non-custom) handles?

    I bet having a 'Handle plant' helps.

    An available desirable knife to review

    It's semi-stainless. And, technically on paper because of the Carbon content, cast iron. 🤔 It's stainless enough leaving it wet for 15 minutes won't leave you with rust.

    Best knife collection threads?

    Valgard's usually doesn't disappoint. Not that anyone else's is disappointing.

    How exactly do you apply pressure while sharpening?

    Even pressure on push and pull.

    First Wa Handle, to epoxy or not?

    Hmm EDIT: After the tang is inserted.

    First Wa Handle, to epoxy or not?

    A sliver of wood and hot glue or beeswax. Hot glue will be a little sturdier.
