I think it's been two years since I sharpened my knives!

    It got to the point that I couldn't reach for a semi-sharp Carter.
    Way past time. I had to re-profile three of the five Carters, they still had whatever profile since I bought them.
    That being said.. They do keep an acceptable edge for quite a long time.

    My god it has been over two years again! I do really love my Carters!
    I guess I should really love them and sharpen them more.
    Happy new year!

    I think that you are our most patient forum member. 32 months with no reply and then you post an update.

    Excellent style

    Good for you bud... 2 years on a carter! I use to need to re-do the edge every 4 citrus I'd cut. Interesting how the 2 year mark is re-occurring for you, I guess white steel is best for some people.

    In a drawer! Sounds dangerous.
