    Withdrawn Single-bevel knives to practice sharpening and polishing

    I bought a single bevel petty as my first one since I figured it being shorter would be easier (which it was). It ended up being my favorite knife for about a year. Just food for thought.

    Well damn. I literally just talked myself out of buying one of these the other day now you post this. I will be heavily monitoring this thread if it doesn’t sell immediately
