    Help fixing a screwed up Mazaki

    I ended up getting the short end of a stick in a trade. I was told this Mazaki was sharpened only twice. I have no clue how someone could screw up a knife this bad without actually trying. Seems the front end has been way over-sharpened and created a bit of a belly. The knife is obviously...

    Selling a TF Maboroshi. Bought it second hand. Papers say its originally from knifewear.

    SOLD Andrei Markin S-grind 180mm Niolox Nakiri

    This is a cool knife I got from Andrei. I originally added it to an order give I had from Andrei to give to my brother-in-law but he contacted Andrei and ordered a similar knife. Have only done a few test cuts but I'm not a nakiri guy so it never got put to use. Seems to have some cool looking...

    SOLD Hunter Valley Blades 272mm 52100

    I will regret this sometime down the road when I have space to use this beast but as of now and for the foreseeable future I won't be using this. Used about 3 times. Knife has not seen stones or even a strop. My counter spaces are just too small. It's one hell of a workhorse and super...

    How to be a good seller on BST

    I’ve bought quite a bit of stuff off BST but haven’t sold anything yet. I definitely have way too much money tied up in knives and need to unload some. Plus I kind of have a better feeling for what works for me. Just curious of tips people have learned over the years. Best way to package...

    Why 1095?

    What are the characteristics or benefits of 1095? What is it most like? From makers I’ve spoke to, 1095 and 52100 are in the same price range. My experience so far has been that 52100 out preforms 1095 it a ton of categories. Any reason in particular someone chooses 1095?
